BMW's are smarter than you think. The "registration" process let's the charging system know how to properly re-charge the battery. The way it does that is based off the age, and specs, of a...

Most likely, your problem is the lower steer column (with the knuckle) needs to be replaced. I just did this on my 2007 328xi. It was a PITA, but I did it myself. :)

This happens with my 2011 328xi... Not sure what it is. It's a "slow" start after sitting 2-3 days... maybe it's just a starter issue?

The OP has a 328 so the job is even easier.. No need to remove the fan. And for the cost of the "kit", ease of install, and piece of mind, I say just replace it all (belt, tensioner, pulley).

Any possibility it could be the fuel? Meaning, can you recall a certain fuel station you use just before you start noticing the long crank issue?

Personally, I would reset the error code (using a tool like BMW Carly) and see if it happens again. If not, the gas cap was your problem... If it comes back, replace the DMTL pump.
