Random startup issues on 09 E90 M3

Hey all,

Over the past week I've had the same start up issue happen 3 times. I can't seem to replicate it easy though. No errors, car runs fine, nothing out of the ordinary.

What happens is when I press the Engine Start button the car just cranks normally, but it keeps cranking and doesn't turn over. It sounds healthy, it just doesn't turn over and keeps cranking until I press the Engine Start button again to turn the car/ignition off.

This has only happened 3 times, but its all been within the last week. No mods on the car what so ever. I've got around 22,000 miles.

The battery was just replaced by BMW a few weeks ago...

Any ideas? Just take it to the dealer?

If it's within warranty take it to the dealer. On the random occasions it does happen, sounds like the engine is turning but not getting any fuel or spark, one of the two.
