The old codes, dont worry about.

But of course you go a PPI, right??? Pre Purchase Inspection???

Well, anyway...

You need to replace the EXHAUST camshaft position sensor, bank2. I kind of recommend replacing all 4 CPSs (two intake, two exhaust) as they tend to fail. The run about US$80 per, more or less. PITA to install. Lots of DIYs.

The crankshft error is most likely due to the CPS- once they loose track, you'll see crank errors.

A few things to consider: O2 sensors, MAFs, VANOS Orings, Fuel Filter.

But replace the CPS and go from there.

and by far the best online forum for M5s is M5Board dot com
