What I am asking Iron is the following. When he offers the opinion that a responsive start on a cold engine is a sign of good compression does that include using glow plugs on engines, like the M25xp, that have them. Response from anyone that has experience with diesels would be appreciated.

Yes. If an engine has glow plugs, they should be used for a cold start test.
