That was the tack my first SA took, it wasn't giving a code so there must not be anything wrong with it. If that's the litmus test, a monkey could do the same diagnostic job as a BMW mechanic.

Update - it took a week after getting the car back from the dealer putting a bottle of fuel injector cleaner in, but the hiccups returned. Usually mild, but today at one point they were more violent. And two days ago I had two violent downshifts at separate times in the 30-35 mph range. Not as bad as before I had the sleeve replaced, but haven't had anything like that lately. Calling the dealer again tomorrow.
