It's definately the glow plugs. I know of several instances - including my own car - in which the OM606 required early replacement of glow plugs. My '98 required it just about a year ago. Symptoms were just a touch of roughness and smoke, only when starting stone cold - first thing in the morning. I ignored it for a while, but eventually the check engine light came on. Dealer replaced all six glowplugs, and the relay for good measure. Problem has been fixed ever since. Suggest you head for the dealer if the car is still under warranty.
