Cranky second start

I recently bought a 1998 S420 with 34K miles on it. The car is in beautiful condition for the most part, but it sat for about a year before I got it. I've had to replace some things (a front spring and alternator) and I have one other issue that I need to address. First thing in the morning or whenever I first start it, it starts right up. If I drive it for a while and let it sit, the next start takes two tries to get it started. Does anybody have an idea what this is? I'm thinking it has something to do with the ignition coils but I'm not sure. Any ideas?
