Had the exact same thing with my 3.0d.
Turned out to be leaking injectors 2 in my case.
Get a leak test done.

You can't see a leaking injector sorry.
It's the tip that leaks you need to get a leak-off test done on them.
Not a bmw but this video will show you what the test is.

Cam sensor used to be one of the causes for bad warm starting and there would be a code registered so get the codes checked.
