Loss of power when engine warm

Hi, when I start my 323i, 2000 car, the car starst just fine, and lots of power, can be running the car all day ok, but as soon I turn the engine off, and turn it back on, the engine is sluggish, and the car consumes LOTS of fuel, when the engine cools down, then it starts and runs ok, I also noticed that when the engine is warm, it takes longer than usual to start, has anyone seen this kind of problem on their car??? I already replaced plugs, cleaned MAF sensor and looked around for something ovious, this is driving me crazy!!!! Thanks guys for your help!
