Starting Issue

Hi
having issues starting my car today,
issue was the car started then after a few secs it cut off, has done this for a couple of starting attempts.

breakdown couldn't find anything so car is at a bmw specialist. any ideas,

car is a 06 reg 320i and done 59000 miles. I have changed the spark plugs on Saturday. car was working perfect after spark plugs were changed as I drove it yesterday and Saturday.

thanks

If it's not had the coil packs replaced, BMW should do this free of charge - do that for starters, as they should run a diagnostic whilst they're at it.

There's a whole thread specifically for the ballache that is the 320i petrol. My missus had one and it'd run like a dog every 6-12 months at random. Engine would shake like it's running on 2 or 3 cylinders and about to rip itself from the mountings, or would stall, re-start, stall and restart over and over. Yellow EML would come on. Then if you turned it off for anywhere from 20 mins to a day or so, and the car would run flawlessly again for months and months - and just to add to the fun, the EML would no longer be on and there would also be no faults stored.

My diagnostics wouldn't pick anything up, BMW couldn't detect what had caused it either.

Thoroughly frustrating.
