    Hi there, I have a problem with my beloved BMW, it starts and ticks over perfectly but has a severe lack off power. Diagnostics are only showing " outside temp" and " TOG" errors. I have replaced the MAF Sensor but no change, disconnect ing it makes quite a difference, I have also changed oil and all filters as well as spark plugs, does anyone have any suggestions?

    Many thanks

    Andrew

    A Bosch one, bought from eBay, was listed as new but have doubts. Lets for now assume its not a faulty one, is there anything else it could be?
