Starting Trouble - 2010 328XI - New Battery?

Let me preface by saying that my car was inside a garage when this happened, so it was not subject to the 20 degree weather outside (although the garage is not heated).

Yesterday, I got into my 2010 328XI with 55K miles and it wouldn't start. It sounded like it kept cranking just fine, just wouldn't turn over. Took me about 10 mins and I finally got it started by pressing down on the accelerator several times. Pre-electronic ignition, this would seem to me to indicate a flooding problem. But not sure whether that can even happen with the BMW technology. It started fine several times afterwards. Could I need a battery at 55K miles and wouldn't I have heard "weakness" in the cranking if it was the battery?

BTW, no dashboard warning signals at all.

Any ideas?
