    you should get the fault codes read with a BMW specific scanner as PXXXX codes are not as comprehensive, any BMW indy garage can do it for you.

    Cam/crank sensor or splits or airleaks in the hoses.You won't know if its a sensor till you've had it read with a BM specific scanner

    the air flow mass sensor is easy to replace but a costly article.

    cam sensor should also be easy,you need to know if it is the inlet or exhaust cam sensor that is playing up.

    i would replace this first.

    and see if fault sorts itself out before u tacke the airmass sensor.

    i would also check for persihed rubber vacuum hoses as they can trigger the faults u describe.

    the cam sensor should be easy to replace as it is located in front of the engine,easily visible whe u remove the plastic top cover and diy friendly.

    make sure u replace the rubber o ring as the old one could leak oil/spoil your new sensor.
