Hi I'm having this problem too with my e46 saloon. Cold starts are ok but if the engine is still warm then it just turns over but wont fire up. Really worrying me since I've only just picked it up and I have a feeling the garage are going to be really awkward about it even though it's under warranty. Did you find out what it was in the end?
