320si intermittent starting problem

I've been having some intermittent starting problems where starting can take 15-20 seconds in some cases.

During my recent service I reported this to the dealer expecting them to say what starting problem.....Which they initially did!

But then they rang me back an hour later to say they had managed to see the symptoms. Their initial diagnosis is that the timing needs to adjusted forward by 1/4. But they would need to check with BMW HQ as the are some issues with my engine.....

The dealer told me that some other 3 series have had this problem.
Anyone had similiar problems?
