E82 / E87 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Mein Auto: BMW 128i

Hey guys! I have a question. My car was acting funny, very rough idle, jerking when I let off the gas.. Thought it might have been through spark plugs because it also has been losing power through out a couple months.. but it wasn't That. I read the code and it scanned P0012 (camshaft position sensor) I was wondering if anyone has has this problem and if so.. Fixed what the code read and it solved the issue. Thanks!

The problem is either a bad camshaft position sensor or a problem with the VANOS unit (it controls the camshaft timing).
Chances are it's just the sensor. It should be a relatively easy repair. But get a shop to do a proper diagnosis first.
