You can do the job your self, get the harmonic balancer from ebay and new bolts from bmw. It's a very easy job.
Yes, but the harmonic balancer/vibration dampener can affect the CPS, its only a mm away. If that happens then the engine will cut out for sure.

Op, make sure the sensor is exactly 1 mm away from the teeth of the vibration dampener/harmonic balancer.
