2006 325xi starting issues

Hello I bought a 325xi a while back that had a busted oil pan got the oil pan done now I need to get the car started. it just cranks with no sighs of turning over checked one coil today with a inline type tester that coil at least was good. gonna check the rest of the coils tomorrow as well as the condition of the spark plugs and compression. Does timing go out of whack in these cars regularly? do you guys have any other ideas? could it be a bunch of fouled plugs? it has set for 9 months. Also I don't think it is fuel because I tried starting fluid and that didn't work.

Busted oil pan? I'd start with a compression test.
