Hi,
I took delivery of my `04 330Ci Performance Package on March 31. This past Sunday, (at 1380 miles) the car started, then stalled repeatedly....would`nt run for more than a few seconds. I had it flat-bedded to the dealer that day....they`ve had it for three days and STILL can`t figure out what`s wrong....they claim to have checked the fuel pump, cam sensor, changed all 6 injectors, and more....now the dealer wants BMWNA to send an engineer to look at it....I`m beginning to question their ability to diagnose the problem. Any suggestions?
TIA

ask to have the whole puter replaced. i am speaking out of my *(*hole here, but it sounds like the other hardware is not at fault....

Follow-up to my stalling saga :Well, the car spent the week at the dealer....hooking up to the diagnostic did not reveal any error codes....so they began changing parts in a "process of elimination" fashion. Eventually, it was determined that the ignition coils were at fault. The car has run well since, but upon start-up still acts a bit "cold-blooded",i.e., it`s a little rough until it warms up a little, kinda like my old Kawasaki KZ1000 bike....(but I DO like this car!)
