    Hello, 2002 plate 84000 miles petrol, auto. I will try to keep this simple, had no problems with car then drove 1 mile down road 30mph all lights appeared on dash car stopped dead, recovered to garage diagnostics read cam sensor unit, unit replaced, car running well for 4 days 350miles later at 40mph same as above only differance was car started up after being off loaded from flat bed recovery truck diagnostics read DME additive mixture adaptation, bank 2 control limit reached ( code 272D ) and bank 1 ( code 272c ) my mechanic called BMW as not sure of code they said no idea change the oil seperator unit and that should do it, job done car ran great for 3 days 250miles covered than drove 1/4 mile down road 5 mph it happens again recovered back to garage, my mechanic takes to BMW on tow truck to have there machines read code and same codes read they have no idea as no obvious signs BMW suggest that it may be an air leak but that the diagnostic reading can not pin point anything, thay also said they could try this and that and the bill could run into thousands and they still may not cure the problem. Does any one have any ideas or suggestions as this car has become an expensive nightmare as it stops dead no obvious signs like lumpy ride, bangs, smoke, smells, just all lights come on dash, engine stops and will not restart for about an hour. Please help !
