Ok, this is strange,

My name is Ben, i have a 93 325is too... I had my engine light come on, it was my O2 sensor too. i had it replaced, a couple of days later,my car was still acting strange (engine light was on again) RPMs would bounce up and down, i took it back in, they said they gave me a faulty O2 Sensor, so they replaced it again, also my #2 Knock sensor was down, so i had both replaced (sensor #1 and #2) what they do is when they sense Knocking/pinging they adjust the valves (?) correct me if i am wrong.. thats the self adjusting valves, the '93 M50 engines have a different fuel injection system and knock sensor system than the '94+ models

healthy RPMs for you car is betwen 500-700 rpms at idle

cool car and cool name Ben
