i had that on my 03m3

i am pretty sure it is the comp. you should have the car flatbeded
to the dealer and ask them for the new softwear for your car.
it makes it easy to start your car. in cold weather or if you did not
start your car for a few days. and if that isn't it they could find out what it is. but i am almost possitive that is what it is. you should look into it.

yeah, same shiz happened to me on my 03 325ci, it's the computer, at the time they had to load the new software on to my comp, but the HQ in virginia didnt have it, so they sent it back. and now i dont have any problems, maybe just reset the comp. it's not the battery, its the comp. and make sure to ask the dealer if there are any recalled parts, mine had 4
