i think what he means by flooding is if you try to give the car too much gas, while starting, there is too much gasoline inside the engine, and not enough oxygen for it to combust. if the car gets flooded you should just wait a few mins before restarting.
i didnt catch what car you were driving, but most bmws are fuel injected, and you shouldnt have to touch the gas while starting the car
