i had this problem starting the car when it was warm, not cold lol.
apparently its a common fault with tds engine that is in it (may apply to some discoveries aswell).
fixed with a hot start chip off ebay for £35ish. done the trick so will recomend it.

update on this, have now taken the hot start off. After bmw serviced my car they discovered that the fuel pump in the tank was degrading and was sending tiny fragments of itself into the engine and turning the diesel blue. Have now had the pump and sender replaced and starts first time hot or cold. The garage done it for me and charged me £150. Rang rydales in cardiff to see if they could match the price and no where near. Happy days.
