X3 won't start first time?

Hi, a friend has asked if I would post a problem they are having with their x3. The issue is that the car doesn't start on the first click I.e it takes a few turn overs before it starts. It is a diesel and the battery has just been changed.
Any help would be appreciated.

The battery is new, they took it to a local Indy and they suspect a blocked fuel filter. Now replaced and needs ran to see if successful.

Cheers for the replies.

I'd be checking the glow plug operation.
