Check the connections at the starter.

Hate to bring up a old thread but I’m having this exact issue with my car. Always starts on the second try. It never starts on the first try especially if the cars been sitting. Although If the cars warm it’ll start up first try. Any ideas what may be causing this issue?

Could be bleeding fuel pressure when the car is off. If it's bleeding pressure when the car is off, it'll take a bit of time to prime it after it been sitting. Would explain why it does not start on the first try after it's been sitting, but starts up quickly when it's been run recently. Hook up a fuel pressure gauge near the rail and monitor the pressure.

Could also just be a dirty fpr.

I had something similar happen twice. First time, it was the FPR. Second time it was the starter itself.

FPR could be weak, pump too. .
easier just to turn to on position, count to 5s.. then start..

We have just verified that you got the female version. She needs a bit of foreplay before shes willing to go all the way....
