Mein Auto: 2000 740iS, 2003 540iS

Most of the time, a P0011 indicates a timing chain (guide) problem.

Others have said its' been caused by a CPS problem, but most admit it's a timing chaing guide issue.

If it were my car, I'd drop the oil pan & look for broken bits of the timing chain guide.

Hate to bring bad news, and I do hope this isn't the cause of your P0011, but.......chances least you'll know.
