04 325ci starting issue?

Becoming a more frequent event. when i turn the key to start the car and it begins to fire i then let off the key and the car dies. almost like what happens if you dont hold the key long enough, which is what i had thought at first the issue was. but this problem has become more frequent. i have done my searching so please dont tell me to search this first. i wasnt able to find any posts with similar symptoms. car has 90k, i read some things about the fuel pump being a possiblity but i dont want to waste a buncha time or money replacing good parts. no check engine light. any input greatly appreciated.

Why are you asking in the M3 forum?

First thing I would do it have the codes read, to see if the car can tell what went wrong.
