Unhappy Re: Renault Scenic - Faulty Coils Causing Warning Light(Including General Info)*fixed

Hi chaps,
Just bought a 51 plate Scenic 1.6 16v and have a couple of intermittant problems with it. Firstly cold starting is a pain, the engine starts quickly but then dies off. It starts second attempt but I need to keep the revs up for a couple of seconds.
Secondly I intermittantly get what appears to be 'missing' from the engine but only when taken over 3000 rpm or so, sometines the engine warning light flashes and the after a while it resets.
I have receipts to say that the coils were all replaced 20k miles ago and also front and rear lambda sensors.
Does anyone have any ideas please?

Many thanks
