what is the mileage? you have what is called leak down. injectors are dirty and under short driving conditions the fuel leaks into the combustion chamber causing hard start. After initial start up - short drive - then sitting. Doesn't happen to my cars often but does happen with 2 of my 3 on occasion.

run an injection cleaning system through it - Terra clean, or remove and rebuilt the injectors.

I think I've had 18 bmw's in 6 years.
