Ok, after 15k miles and 18 months after the timing chain change, it looks like it failed again. Probably worse this time since the the engine sounds stiffled, like it's clogged . There is also a tickling sound when it revs down, that hasn't been present before.


Errors found at diagnosis:

29F3 - Fuel Low Pressure Sensor Electric
2A26 - Catalytic Converter, Conversion in stratified - charge mode
2A2D Fuel Low pressure, fuel pressure
2A87 Exhaust Vanos Mechanism
2A99 Crankshaft, exhaust camshaft
2AAF Fuel pump, plausability
2C31 Oxygen sensor emissions control

My mechanic said that most probably the chain is problematic again, but he has to open the valve cover to test the timing.

I can believe it..."ultimate driving machine"...yeah right. I will never consider BMW again.

Is it posible to be a vanos related issue? How can the timing chain fail again in such a short period of time??

Ok, somehow it turns out that the catalytic converter is dead and it needs to be replaced.

I assume there is not other way than to buy another one, right? Are there any mods that can bypass the cat?
