OK... what my airplane mechanic friend and I thought was the starter relay box, wasn't. we did a google search and the finding was that BMW does not have a starter relay but the wire goes directly into the ECU. I don't know if this is correct as I do not have the service manual. But we could not diagnose the starter or relay. Did check the ECU fuses all 3 of them and they all checked out fine...
