Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you're setting a cam timing related code and have ruled out a variable valve timing issue then a timing chain or cam sensor issue is likely.

P0011 doesn't show valid for the vehicle information supplied. Can you double check the code number and post the VIN?

BMW Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

The lowest numerical code listed for this VIN is P0100.

You double checked the codes today?
