BMW 760Li cranks want start

I've owed my 2004 760li since 2010 and it has never given me any problem until the other night. Coming to a stop at a red light it stalled out. I attempted to crank it but it would not start after several attempts.
Had it towed home and after letting it sit until the next day I attempted to start it and it started right up. I allowed it to run for a 25 minutes and turned it off. Then I restarted it and it still ran pretty smooth but every now and then the engine would surge a little.
Man this thing has me confused, lost and in need of advice

Is it starting right up? Or is it taking longer to crank than it did 2010? Is it throwing any codes?

Sounds like your SBSR module. Its located in the "B" pillar (passenger side pillar). Mines use to stall out an then would not crank. After sometime it would fire up like nothing happened. I'm not saying that's your problem as I am NO tech but you can start there. Best of luck.
