Does the engine turn over on the starter and not fire,or does it just click when you try and start it?

If it turns over and doesn't fire then it's most likely to be a TDC sensor fault,if it just clicks then it's going to be either a starter motor fault or a connection to the starter.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
