Make sure the choke linkage is opening the choke far enough. These cars need major fuel richening for cold start.

It is very p0ossible that the fuel system is a little clogged. It happens to all cars eventually especially if you use the cheaper fuels like supermarkets etc.
Anyway, you can try a decent Injector Cleaner and even change the oil but again use a decent Engine Flush. The stuff I use on my own and friends motors is Injection-Correction.co.uk. You can buy it online and it works a treat. Same stuff the prestige garages use...
Usually a dose of this stuff will give the fuel system a good clear out and make it alot easier to start when cold. Starting issues are usueally fuel related or electrical but by the sound of yours it is purely fuel related. Try it out and reap thebenefits.....

You may have a CTS (Coolant Temperature Sensor) problem. If the coolant level is low the CTS could be sending a false signal to the ECM or the CTS may be faulty. The CTS must be in coolant to provide an accurate signal to the ECM and if the coolant level is low then the ECM thinks the engine is cold and therefore provides a rich air/fuel mixture. This, in turn could be the cause hard start (evident by black smoke from the exhaust), and could be the reason the vehicle failed the emission test.

sounds like you may have some bad glowplugs. Does wait to start light come on and stay on for about 10 seconds? Could be relay issue also
