    Hello all, new member with a new - used 325ci. Love the car but it has issues starting after sitting for a while. Seems to be worse when cold outside. Had the car at Russel BMW for a major service and they checked out the battery / electrical system and found no issues. The car does crank and tries to start. I'm convinced it is a fuel delivery issue. When the car does start, it runs great. Any ideas on what to have the shop look at would be greatly appreciated.

    Original battery?
    I wonder if they tested the electrical system after it's been outside all night instead of a nice warm toasty garage if their results would have been different?
    My money is on a new battery.
