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.
the first thing to check is operating voltage to make sure the vehicle is at about 14.5v and steady
if that checks out, you likely have a faulty IVM or vvt control module (most likely IVM). The ivm is a common failure and will need to be replaced.
both modules are in the engine compartment electronics box
if you need a shop for this check out www.bimmershops.com or www.bimrs.org for options
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.
