Hope your 35d gets sorted!
Our cars have a V
HPFP, a Bosch CP-3 running 1600-1800 bar (~23,500-26,500psi), but to be honest, this sounds DME-related, not fuel pressure. If the fuel rail isn't up to specified pressure, it likely wouldn't start at all.
bobyyy, unless your garage is well-versed in BMW diesels, I would take your car back to the dealer...it may initially seem more expensive, but the diagnostics should find the problem fairly quickly.
