i was going to tell you what your most likely problems are and what code 1211 means in your other post, but now you're on your own.
Seriously? Are you in the 4th grade or something?

Why would you assume that I did not look up what the code meant? All research points to:
"1211 - DME, Motronic computer, related fault - which may indicate problem with car computer itself. Delete any stored codes and perform following test: Start the car and let it run for 30 seconds; Turn off car and let it sit for another 30 seconds; Perform diagnostic test again; If the same flash code re-appears DME should be replaced"

I have done all of those recommendations. Here are all the codes:

None of which mention "your gas cap is loose". I have been driving BMWs since 1987 and can remember when Bimmer owners actually helped each other out!
