I recently bought a 2002 certified -pre-owned 325i, fully loaded , has 10,000 miles on it.

It takes two tries to start the engine on cold mornings, anytone experrience this on their 325i, what could be the cause?

I really would not worry about that. Perhaps you have to hold key in start position a little longer for engine to crank otherwise put preimium gas in the tank sometimes low octane gas may cause hard starts. With that many miles don't worry

That sounds like a problem. I would take it to the dealer.
