Intermittent starting problems are hard to diagnose. Certainly the guy at the auto parts store is not your best choice. I would recommend you take the car to a reputable independent BMW specialists. You can find one near you here: BMW Repair Shops - Find a BMW Mechanic | BimmerShops.com

BTW, the auto parts store "guy" is lying when he states "corporate" policy is to no longer "deal with BMWs".
