take and turn your key forward and backwards a few times with out turning the engine over. this gets the fuel pressure up and ready for starting. and then crank the car, it should crank right up with out having to turn over much at all. if this doesnt change anny thing, of course check the battery posts for needed cleaning.
i have a similar prob, though maybe not so similar...
lately, though not necessariily cuz of the weather, maybe it´s just wear, but for manual trannys does the clutch pedal have to be pushed as far as physically possible to start the car, or just in enough to disengage clutch to start? i have to almost bend the pedal in i gotta push it so far back to start it, and now with my new pedals that i out on (cool as they are), since they are bigger and restrict the pedal movement slightly, i almost can´t turn it on
so is this normal for manuals or do i need to take it in? or something i could maybe do meself

id say the clutch ingage button/sensor is going bad. try turning the key, then slowly press in the clutch untill it starts, it may just be taking a little wile for the button to release.
unfortunatly no-go. i can still start it, it´s just getting annoying to shove that pedal to the back wall to start it. take it in, or might it be easy to replace myself? (novice technician,but good w/ instructions...)
