Just a thought. Get your friend to check fuel pressure at the rail on the engine. When was fuel filter last changed? Fuel pumps last anywhere from 6-12 years, dying from time as much as miles.

Also, if it was not a genuine bmw sensor that may be the problem. Aftermarket rarely work out. Could also have just gotten a bad one but unlikely. It's probably something else that caused the cut out and the cam sensor was just close to dying and threw a code. Older cars, multi-failures.....
