We're driving up from Solana Beach in our 2001 carbon black E39 M5 "beast". Any other M5s / Z8s coming from San Diego County? We want to compare notes on S62 engine tuning.
See you at the infield parking area (hopefully).
I have a 1998 540i prod date 3/98 which makes it pre-vanos. My Check engine light is on for quite a few codes
p0300 random misfire
p0302 misfire cyl 2
p0303 misfire cyl 3
p0304 misfire cyl 4
p0136 o2 heater circuit b1 s2
p0141 o2 heater circuit b1 s1
p0161 o2 heater circuit b2 s2

The reoccuring codes are
