First, a little back story. I'm from California but I spent this summer in Michigan working on some stuff for Ford (they're funding my PhD). Anyhow, a couple of weeks ago my 2000 323Ci SES light lit up and it's throwing the P1188 and P1189 codes. I replaced both pre-cat O2 sensor since...
Heres what I am working on; 1999 323i automatic 135,000 miles
It all started with 13 codes all of which were eliminated with a new intake elbow.
Well long enough for me to smog it anyways.
Even with no CEL light when accelerating, or merging onto freeway the car would sometimes go into limp...
I bought my 99 328 in September right before winter came as my only form of transportation at the time was my gsxr600. Bought from original owner. 129,XXX curently. MN. Had it inspected at Camp BMW they came back saying all it needed was coolant & brake flush as well as new tires. Did see on the...

I'm no mechanic but enjoy doing as much as I can on my own. Over the last year...

P1250 (especially this one)
P0170 (P0171 on M54 & M56 engines)
P0173 (P0174 on M54 & M56 engines)
Freeze frame data on my scanner...
