    Slow to start TDi

    I was looking at a 1999 Bora Sport 110 TDi on Saturday, and it all seemed fine, except that when you turn the key it turns over a few times before it starts. I didn't see the car when it was cold, so this is from warm

    Any ideas? If this was common/easy to fix I would buy this car!

    Thanks

    66000 miles, could it really be the glow plugs, even when the engine is warm?

    EDIT: moschino - It cranks mayme 4-5 times, but then fires up immediately, and runs fine
