Mein Auto: 2003 BMW M 3
2003 camshaft module

I have a 2003 M3 I was having a problem when taking off in 1st gear in Sport mode with the car lerching forward"bucking", when i would shift to 2nd problem gone. Now when the car is cold it is lerching and or "Bucking" in 2nd gear. The dealership says its something to do with a cam shaft control module and they say the part is $2700.00 anyone else with similar problems? The car only has 68,000 miles

Reply if you have not fixed this.... or better yet, DO NOT listen to the dealer and GO TO m5board.com to the E39 forum. I can guarantee we can help you out for WAY less than $2700
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
