But around the 10th time round it will start and that's only with the pedal all the way down. My car is a bmw 320d and just recently had a full service including glow plugs being changed. I have done diagnostics at many places and no one can find any faults.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hard start for a diesel can mean several things, poor fuel quality is one, lack of pressure is a possibility too. If there are no currently present faults, there may be an issue with a main or fuel pump relay becoming intermittant. BMW did'nt import the diesel cars to the States in 2005. Are you in Europe?
