    When warm car only running on 2 cylinders code came up as camshaft positioning sensor after trying a few different ones last one direct from BMW problem worst once fit old sensor only plays up when warm? New sensors play up as soon as fitted?
    My garage have given up? Says try auto electrician but guy busy for a week just want to sell car now as fed up just fitted new softop and bought a pair of nice leather seats so bit reluctant to give up on it yet car was very wet when bought it as full of leaks but ran ok for a few weeks but now running so badly.

    Really hoping someone might have an idea on this problem? Not sure where to go now I'm wondering if water could of got into somewhere and it's an electrical problem it's strange car runs worst with new sensor yet needs to be warmed up for old one to cause the same problem?
    Can someone please help!
