Does it restart after it sits for about 10-15 minutes?
Next time it won't start hot, check and see if it has spark when cranking. If not, it could be you've got a loose or dirty electrical connection somewhere in the ignition system. It is good enough when cold, but as electricity passes through it, it heats up and the resistance goes up enough that the car won't re-start. These "marginal" connections can be a bear to locate because the circuit is cooling down and the problem repairs itself while you are troubleshooting it. Check the fuse panel and just make sure there are no obvious signs of corrosion or heating up in there. Not sure how much different the Mondial fuse panel is from the 308, but you may need to pull it out and look at the back of it. After that it is just a matter of going through all the grounds and ignition circuit and making sure all the connections are clean and tight.
If it has spark when it won't start, then it may be a fuel problem. If it is a fuel problem, I don't know enough about the Bosch system to offer any insight as to why it may be giving too much or not enough fuel when warm.
