Second code is actually 0A... this is the exhaust CPS cyl 5-8
Third I am not sure of, might be the ebox fan.

The first two are causing the driveability issues. Just replace the camshaft position sensor and see what comes back
since you have codes for cyl 5-8 i would recommend disassemble vanos control on right side which is gonna be oil fill cap side. and clean it with parts cleaner. then replace each o-ring that you supply from bmw dealer. be careful with the vanos board during removal. then put it back and check if you have signal after repair hasbeen performed. make sure wiring and connector is in good shape.
