Car won't start

Hello everyone, I'm new to this site, Just a quick question about my car. I have a 1993 BMW 325is and I was driving down the road with no problems at all and it just stopped running. I tried to start it again and it turn over great but it won't start. It has 3/4 of a tank of fuel so it's not out of gas. I bought this vehicle last year and this is the first time I have problems with it. Can anyone please give me some suggestions as what to check first? Thank You

Thank you for the info, we checked the fuel pump and we are getting nothing out of it, I have ordered a new pump, just waiting for it to come in. I hope this works, I'll let you know.

Thank You

I'd guess its the fuel pump as well. If you want to check it 100%, have a look at the relay that supplies 12volts to the fuel pump, make sure the relay is good, then if you want to take it 1 step further, supply 12 volts directly to the relay pin that goes to the fuel pump. If after applying 12 volts there is no noise from the pump, you have pretty much assured yourself of identifying the fault.
