2008 e60 p0012

I have a 2008 e60 and getting a p0012, I have replace both sensors and both solenoids and I'm still getting this error. when i restart the car all is good, then about 20 secs running the code pops up again. every time i restart its fine until i drive a mile or two. I have switched the sensors and the solenoids around and the error stays on the p0012 side?????

also it will smoke like crazy for a while then stop, but all is well at higher speeds.

please help

May be there's a particular approach or sequence to installing these parts? Perhaps it's time to take it to a BMW tech to have him look it over?
