I'm no expert but I'll give you my thoughts. On my 93 525i, I also had problems with starting the car. It turned out to be my transmission chip, I had it replaced for $1200 (ouch, wish I knew about Dinan tranny chip, would have saved me $900). Also, check your eprom chip to make sure it's okay. If it's either of the above, then you have choices: Dinan makes eprom and tranny chip and Jim C makes eprom chip as well. As for the whole computer, I heard around $1500.
