Then for some reason it's going into something called 'Limp Mode'.The ECU detects a major fault in the system somewhere and restricts engine revs to 3,000rpm.It's strange that it only does it when it is first started.

The first thing I'd do is try and get the ECU fault codes read and go from there.You don't need to get this done at a Renault dealers,most independant garages have the equipment to do this now.This should show up where the problem is,and should cut out a lot of guess work.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
