Now I maybe try replace the fuel filter?

I finaly get DIS to do learning procedure to VVT. So VVT is now learned, fuel adaptations reset. I will try tomorow morning cold start.

The car is now working fine (but it is not so cold outside), so the problem is fixed till next winter
thats good to hear

btw the learning procedure you carried out was for the valvetronic motor not the VVT (which is VANOS for BMW's). there are no relearning procedures in scanners for vanos.
