Hello guys... i have this annoying problem with my luvly 318is... after resolving my overheating issues(replaced thermostat and water pump), ive been enjoying the car with temp needle always in middle... but now after a longish drive or 50miles+ motorway journey, when i stop the engine and try to start it again... nothing happens... turn the key... but nothing...no sound of starter motor doing much... or any clicks or anythin... so the only thing i can usually do is weight till temp needle is somewhere near the 1/4 mark and try again.... and than it works... engine starts up like nothing was wrong... help./...? is the starter motor(i dont think) or the coil(what is that?) or somethig else?
