you are right about running it hard for a little while.. usually cleans the hydrocarbons right out.
butch an after market cat will work but make sure that you dont have to go that far.. sometimes a simple oil change/air filter/plugs will do the trick.
keep us posted on what happens..

This is mostly true of BMW techs who rely solely upon their stupid assed computers to tell them, what the problem is. They were the first to reccomend "changing the MAF, The o2's, the manifold gasket" all at expense to me of course (Over £2000) just to try and find the problem (and with those changes they would still have been far from the mark). In the end I employed a Fucking North African Immigrant to take her away for 3 days, find the problem and resolve it. 3 days later she was returned running like only a BMW could (problem was a torn diaphragm) and at a cost of only £300. - What more can I say???
