Ended up being the valve body (BMW calls it mechatronics). They said there is a service bulletin on it.

Total repairs were around 5k, had to fight like hell, but third party warranty eventually covered it. BMW originally said they would pay for part and discount the labor, but then said they changed their minds becuase I was not the original owner.

Car drives great now.

So your telling me there is a service bulletin out there about this issue and I've been fighting on the phone with BMW NA for the past 3 weeks and they don't even know about it? Is there any hard copy proof?
