Careful about that advice. No-Y-cable-needed may be true after a particular build date, but it's not true of all 2011s. My '11 335i vert is an early one--April 2010 build--and still needs the Y...

Second attempt was crankshaft position sensor. Completed today (day 15!!!) but didn't help. Throwing new codes, though... A week per experiment is ridiculous!

Reasonable remarks: "I prefer my E90 to your E93," and "I like apples more than oranges."
