ok so given all the components I have changed so far what do you think is the problem,obd showed code p2610

Please do not forget to click a positive rating

it is likely an issue with the abs system, although a basic p code is not detailed enough to reveal the cause - you need to have the car scanned with a proper BMW scan tool to validate. P codes are far too vague/generic in a case like this. As the question has been answered, please kindly select a positive rating
