Unhappy 1992 BMW 320i

A couple weeks ago i came out and started my car with no problem. It ran for about 15 mins with no issues. I turned it off and tried to restart the car immediately all i could hear was the starter making a whining noise. I tried giving it a couple of bangs, but no good, it was still just making the noise.

Yesterday i purchased a new starter and installed it over a two day process. Tried to start the car and nothing, the only sound i could hear was the starter turning. I tried to start the car over and over again, at one point although i dis-engaged the key the starter was still turning. Any ideas? Could this be a ignition issue?

Its normally situated at the end of the barrel.


I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
