Mein Auto: 2003 540i w/Sport Package
For my reference

- parked in work garage for 4 hours
- first attempt, did not start
- second attempt, started but Engine Failsafe was still displaying
- disconnected battery for 3 minutes, reconnected
- started car without issue and ran idle for a few minutes, no issues
* revved engine, seems fine with little vibration when in low-mid range of RPMs
- no check engine light
- shut off and returned to work, will sit for another 4 hours
