Unfortunately, the problem is intermittent and presents itself, if at all, once or twice a day; usually in the morning. The dealer states they are unable to duplicate the complaint. How do I get them to reproduce or acknowledge the problem? Is any data saved on the cars computer systems? Thanks!
Somebody posted on another blog that BMW service techs at a dealership in Las Vegas identified this as a fuel pressure issue where the fuel line loses pressure when idle...I think you posted there...fuel pressure regulator needs to be replaced.
