I have just posted a similar problem, that happens to my S3 now and again (last night - most recently). The engine, turns over, fires, the judgers then its okay - buts it sometimes smokes and smells of petrol, booking it in the garage in 2 weeks time, have you resolved the problem yet?
Took my car to a family friend of mine, German Car Specialist, he plugged it into the Vag-com, the problem is the Coolant Temperature Sensor (Controls the ammount of Pertrol let into the engine, that would explain the strong petrol smell when it sometimes struggles to start.
I ordered them over the phone by credit card and they knocked the price down to £650 with tyres/a set of wolfrace locking wheel nuts and post and packaging
included and they were delivered to my door in 2 working days fully balanced ready to fit on the car !!
I suppose they did it at this price as it saved them Ebay sellers fees and Paypal fees ...
