Notice a slow-start up on this 2013 E63 with 38,000 miles. Initially thought it sounded like a race car starting up; slow, stiff & very tight.
Typically when I turn the key to third position and release, soft cranking will last 2-3 seconds before the engine ignites.
After driving it about 10 miles today at steady pace, parked for 10 minutes, then tried starting and it cranked a bit, then wouldn't start.
Tried again, and voila, after short cranking, it started. Anyone have a similar issue?
