So then you either have a bad spark plug or coil or injector on cylinder number one.

How do you know you aren't just going to replace a coil that will last another 100k miles with a new one that will fail in 20k. You just don't.

You need to go back the them on the injector. BMW says injectors need to be replaced by bank. 1, 2 and 3 or 4, 5 and 6. I don't think there is any case were they replace only one.

I'm at 103k My plugs were replaced at 50 and 100k. All coils are original. If you DIY, I would wait til you have an issue. Coils won't get you stuck like a water pump will.
