Well, the car died just as I was pulling out of my driveway last night. I had it towed to the BMW dealer and apparently it is the eccentric shaft sensor. Apparently there is an oil leak that is coming through the sensor and shorting it out. They want 1452 + tax to fix it (522 parts, 930 labor), he said they have to take the top of the engine apart to fix it. Has anyone else had this repair? Does that sound like a reasonable cost?
