my ladies letting me down!

hey guy's my 308gtsi is beginning to be a pig to start from cold.i live at the top of a hill and it will start if i bump it off and runs smoothly.
it just won't always start from cold i live on a private estate so i can mess around to my hearts content,but i don't feel good bumping a ferrari off!
any idea's as i'm lost.
she has just had a full service inc new plugs filter e.t.c about 1500 miles ago.
i was planning a track afternoon soon but if she won't go i'm stuffed as the nearest specialist is miles away,or could any competent garage/auto-spark deal with bosch injection?
or is there any-way damp could play a part? my garage is heated though.

poor start

day before i had been out and got back in the dark ,hence lights and stereo on.next day try to start and she caught then died in a split second!so i thought maybe the battery hasn't got enough juice to power the starter and the brain? so battery fully-charged and she s so full of petrol now it stinks through the pipes,so i won't know if its the battery until i can roll her down hill again!i'm glad i have no neighbours as such!(well apart from squirells and foxes!)i'm sure their having a great laugh,along with the mouse that ate my spare wheel foam protector!my cat had the last laugh though as is guarding the ferrari now!

Do you have the Ferrari on a battery conditioner?
