I am a new BMW owner (its been great so far!) and have been having some problems with my car stalling. It happens at seemingly random times - at idle, and at cruising speed. The engine just switches off and thats that - no other symptoms at all, and the car starts right back up. The distributor cap and spark plug wires (and the plugs) were replaced within the last 3 months.
I did some searches on the web and it looks like it could be the BMW's ECU unit (Bosch# 0 261 200 027). That seems like a likely explanation to me. Can any of you experts give me some opinions on what you think might be causing this stalling problem?
Also, if I DO have to replace the ECU, do any of you have reccomendations on where to get one used or reconditioned?
On a completely different subject, can you guys reccomend a performance chip for a stock 325 without any performance mods? I'd like the car to be just a bit peppier.
Thank for your help!
