Long Crank

I have and 08 E90 M3 that I just got with 13K miles. I've noticed a long crank,longer than usual. I went out today for a couple of hours and got home,went out after 20min and the car just cranks but won't run. Any idea what's the problem,do you think fuel Pump?

this is the wrong forum for getting a longer crank.

I suspect a not-so-great tune if you're not getting any dash lights (like idle valve, etc). I'd try to contact the previous owner and ask many questions. Otherwise you'll have no choice but to go to dealer, and hope your car wasn't modified (tune, etc). Good luck man.

My car sometimes takes a second or two to start but it actually starts! Call BMW roadside assistance and have it towed to your dealer if they can't jump it.
