BMW E90 - New battery, New Glow plugs and Control unit. Won't start?

Hello,

I have had some trouble with my BMW 330D E90 (2005) recently.
It had trouble starting over the course of a couple of weeks and eventually packed in on the driveway.
Since then I have replaced the battery, glow plugs and glow plug control unit (as well as the rubber gaskets on the intake manifold) but to no avail.
The engine will crank but will not start. Maybe a crankshaft sensor?

I am hoping that someone can point me in the right direction.
Thank you for your time!

Thank you for your reply, Doug.
I did have a diagnostics done by 2 "mechanics" and the control unit, glow plugs and battery did seem faulty. That is why I have replaced them.

Don't worry, I definitely don't fix what is not broken.

I have ordered Carly for BMW. Thought it would be best to get one, just did not know which one. Thank you
