UGHHHH!!! I HATE THIS CAR! Now.....I got "INCREASED EMISSIONS" warning and "ENGINE LOAD" says to drive moderatly and then to service NOW!!! OMG! WHY! WHY ME! So...the guy just called and said its the "mass flow sensor" is not working and that $400 to fix, then he will go from there...if that doesn't work!

BMW SHOULD RECALL THIS CAR! I see other people are having the same problem and I thought I WAS THE ONLY ONE!
That sucks! My wife has mentioned she felt like someone hit her in the past as well, even to the point where she got out of the car to check. Our brake booster also went out. we have about 70K miles. If this surging problem does cost $5K to fix, we will say goodbye to the car.
