Have you checked the fuel system (pump and fuse)?

03 m3

I think that it does not have to do with the fuel..I would think that either the battery is bad or the alternator...but I dont know what to do

Well I'd just check all the fuses. Are you saying that the cranking gives out quickly? Cause a fuel good system, most cars will start with just a few cranks.

the fuel system is working properly, but seems that the battery does not have enough power to start

Something is sapping power from the battery over time. Not an easy issue to hunt down.
