Are there any other codes? If so post them. O2 sensors will leave codes. It's not impossible, but certainly unusual for a 100k mile car to have bad cats.

Per TIS........"The emergency release is only possible if the engine does not start and the starter is turning."

Helpful, but won't help if engine doesn't turn over.

If 17" wheels clear the calipers, then a 17x7.5 ET37 is close enough to 8Jx18 ET34 to work. The 3mm difference in offset (ET 37-34) means the middle of the tire contact area is 3mm closer to the...

Owners manual should tell you if 17" wheels will fit your car.
Not sure when BMW stopped this, but sometimes the tire inflation sticker on the B pillar will show this also.

Yes, for E39's , BMW calls this a "sucking jet pump". F30's are likely similar. It's an educator in engineering terminology. The fuel return line passes into the left tank, thru the "sucking jet...

DIYer's need to check the volume of oil drained and every oil change to verify actual level. My 3.0si is down a quart as soon as the level drops 1/8 of the way to min. At min level it's down 2 quarts.

Sounds like EKP is overheating. Replace low pressure fuel sensor. If problem re-occurs replace EKP.
