This only happens after the car has set overnight or set for some length of time.
Diesels don't "run rich" like gassers. Assuming adequate compression, they burn all of their fuel.

Make sure those new glow plugs are working as they should, and that the relay supplies power as it should. If they are in order, it may be time for a compression check.
