Megane 1.6VVT 2004 Chugging from cold?

Hi guys, bought a S/H Megane 2004 1.6 VVT , and from the day I bought it, its a bugger to start from cold.

Doesn't matter how warm it is outside, I have to start it, immediately rev it to over 1300 rpm, and even then the revs wander all over the place. If I don't , it just dies. After about 30 seconds of revving, it idles fine. If I let the car cool for a couple of hours, it's at it again.
Took it to a mates garage, he replaced the crankshaft position sensor, cleaned out the VVT thing on the LHS of the engine, but it's still the same.

Any ideas? no codes stored in the ECU .
