Just bring the car to Bimmersport Automotive and let Charlie look at it, best service/prices you will find! He is in Mississauga but it's worth the drive!

If its been sitting, and there was gas in the tank, then the gas is bad, very bad, also check your plugs. Fuel filter, air filter, for sure needs fresh oil. definitely the gas is bad if it has been sitting.

You can check by starting the car, disconecting the battery, if car dies then alternator is gone!
