bmw told me 150 pound just to look at it and im not loaded so is it posible for smaller mechanics to do this
Yes, you can get the fault codes read at a Indy BMW specialists, have them read the engine and gearbox codes, also the Airbag and PDC codes.

You can also try putting the car into reverse with just the ignition on, then putting your ear to each sensor listen carefully, they should click, the one that doesn't is the knackered one.
