e39 difficult cold start, but fine afterwards

Hey guys, I have one more issue I'm having a hard time with. I just had the heads replaced (cracked the last one). The car runs great, no codes, but when it sits overnight and I try to start it cold it takes a few tries. Once it starts it idles perfectly and subsequent starts are great through out the day. I have all the usual suspects replaced ( pcv ect...even the vanos unit is new) Fuel pump is new as well and so is the ignition. If anyone has any ideas let me know. Thanks for any help.
