Hmmm. So the crank position sensor doesn't enter into the picture at all? I've never torn into my M3 engine to know, but on other cars I have worked on the cylinder firing was determined by the crank position sensor, so you had to make sure that the crank was positioned so that number one cylinder was at TDC on a firing stroke.
