On starting the engine, my BMW goes through a notification lights check to which I've never paid much attention.
Scepticism and Animal Faith (1923)
Scepticism is the chastity of the intellect, and it is shameful to surrender it too soon or to the first comer: there is nobility in preserving it coolly and proudly through long youth, until at last, in the ripeness of instinct and discretion, it can be safely exchanged for fidelity and happiness.
(The Works of George Santayana p. 65)

Eschew eristical argumentation. I am responsible for what I write, not for your understanding of it.

OP: Get the codes read with a BMW-specific scanner, or INPA, etc., to see if there are known problems.

Replaced your TC's actuator gear and oil yet? Also, with the engine running (and preferably the front wheels off the ground), turn the steering wheel lock to lock a couple of times in case the SAS needs recalibrating.
