This morning my car seemed to turn over a bit more than ever before before catching and striking up. did flash across my mind it maybe wasn't going to start. Was only probably 5 or 6 turns but usually, even cold it had been instant before

-2 degrees Celsius
diesel
not coldest morning it's been struck up but first to make me wonder

anyway, I got to thinking, in the good old days you had an orange symbol thing light up on dash and you didn't turnover till it went out ~ that always took longer on cold days and was something to do with prewarming I think

what happens now that is different ?
as far as I know I'm meant to just get in and press my button ......

That was the old 'minute of silence', waiting until the glow pugs had warmed up! These days they heat up in seconds. If it carries on struggling to start, take it to the dealer to get them checked.
thanks Leon
I'll see what happens over next few days :)

previously had caught on 1st or 2nd turn

today was more, not horrendous amount but enough to make me notice
