you could so a little search... figure out the mechanism that usually goes out and replace it.

I got this error when i took out my after market air intake and put in my stock air box back in accidentally splicing some of the wires. however I never got around to fix it and ended up trading my car in for 335i

I get that same warning on occasion, then on restart - it's gone! It seems so infrequent, I don't consider it a high priority problem. I might mention it the next time I go in for any service.

My front left headlight had the same issue -- got stuck pointing right (giving my car a little bit of a lazy eye). After a trip to BMW they told me it was covered under the extended warranty, and it was a $50 deductible to replace the adaptive headlight motor. Been fixed about 6 months now, and works great!

Hope this helps you out.

By extended warranty do you mean CPO warranty ?
Thanks

Same issue. Under cpo they replaced the headlight assembly as it says on my service paperwork.
