Help! 2005 330ci wont start after going thru water

This morning I ran thru a 6" deep large water pool in a parking lot. I parked immediately on the other side. When trying to start the car 5 minutes later, it would turn over and occasionally sputter. It has now been 12 hours and no change.

Any suggestions??

Give it more time. You might have hydrolocked it. Hopefully it gets warm enough to dry it out.

Check your air filter to see if it is soaked in water.
