I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
this code points to a likely failed airflow sensor or intake air leak.
a proper test plan should be run with a factory BMW scan tool to verify, but in the absence of such testing I would look for air leaks and replace the airflow sensor
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
