Poolside: I meant to ask you whether /you/ drew any 'conclusions' from that last post of yours ... about how the codes are generated and recognized. To me, that looks like another couple of major possible failure points.
It may simply be coincidence that the bikes start after the rings are replaced.
I have maintained, of course in an unofficial capacity that it might be something else, but the illogical logic is that BMW engineers are: 1. Not stupid 2. Not incompetent 3. They wish to solve this problem. Take that to the final conclusion and one can somewhat deduce...no one knows what's causing it OR it would have been fixed by now!
