Not sure on that car but it's normally the engine coolant temp sensor that lets the ecu know it's a cold start and needing more fuel .Just like your old choke as you mention, but as suggested , should be covered by warranty .
we had a vectra 1.9cdti come to us with the same problem, there was low compression in one or more cylinders, but would advise to check battery, alternator, spark/slow plugs first and after that do a compression check.
