Why isnt my 328i not starting

I would start seeing if your car is getting any fuel. My 330i had the same problem. I sprayed starter fluid into the intake and the car started for a few seconds so I knew it was the fuel. If that's the case you need to check if the fuel pump is getting power or if the fuel pump went out. You can find articles online on how to check and change these.

As with any car that won't start, check for fuel, air, and spark. Do you hear the fuel pump engaging when you turn the key to the "on" position?

Yes it's getting fuel but won't start at all
