Well... if your starter is spinning... that means your selenoid that powers the starter is working.

First question towards a diagnosis.... is the engine turning over... barely firing off.... or just turning over.... in other words... is the starter just making noise and nothing is felt being moved by the starter... or is the starter actually moving something.. and turning the engine over.. and it wont "light" off.??????????

BMW replaced transmission on my 2003 325i after 3000 miles ghead
And it's still making whining noise. So expensive cars don't have to be perfect
