After I fixed it, the car still absolutely refused to run correctly, idling horribly rough, stalling and acting totally unpredictable at high rpm. I reset the ecu under the same basic theory that I suggested in my last post and the problem was completely resolved, never to resurface again. It was the lowest lying fruit, so I picked it first and it happened to work, likely saving me considerable time and money. I believe that a "confused" (via receiving unnaturally altered information over a period of time) ecu can cause fairly dramatic/noticeable issues... that may be where we disagree.
Oh this is such an important post ! Please see #258 http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...667661&page=11

Thank you for sharing.
