I drive a 2001 325xi in Rochester, NY.
Here's my problem: When I first turn the ignition the car starts then shuts off instantly. Then I do it again right after and it starts up fine. This started a few days ago but i'm not sure if it's just the cold starts that is causing it or what? Thinking might need new spark plugs but what do I know. Figure I ask for others opinions.

Did you ever figure out what the problem was? I'm having similar problems...I'm thinking it's the fuel filter. Maybe a crack in an intake tube?

Weather has gotten a little bit better. All I did was change the spark plugs last week and haven't had the problem since. Hope that was the issue.:werd:
