2006 E90 330i engine won't start (sound bit)

Hey guys,

Our '06 E90 330i isn't starting, it sounds like the starter is trying to crank but the engine won't fire up. Check out the sound bit link for the sound of what's happening.

I'm assuming its not a starter issue, and the battery was just replaced a year ago (car electronics seem to work just fine), the water pump was also just replaced a month ago (1200 buck repair!).

Has anyone had this issue? What do you think is the cause? I'm ultimately looking to see if it's a repair that I can do myself or if I need to send it back into the shop.

Thanks in advance.
