Not sure it can be explained or that the root cause has been found.

Seemed okay the last couple of days.

Oh, they also did a map upgrade.

Will keep you posted.

Thanks all for reading and your comments.
I had exactly the same symptomps and behaviour and was actually doing repairs 3 times. For the 3rd time they replaced all the injectors and coils and the problem never reocurred (at least so far). Before I could reproduce it in a few minutes. Like ard says we do not know if the cause is the same, but all the symptoms are - so there is a good chance BMW is learning how to fix this. For example, they started replacing injectors and coils right away on your car while on mine it took a while and they had to open a PUMA case to do it. Obviously the solutions database is filling up Good luck with yours!
