Ok... With todays standards... I'm almost positive that more than we even think or.. have talked about in the forum goes on to test the product line and producers of such parts that consist of a BMW. One thing that cant exactly be replicated.. due to time and its lact of practicality.. is longevity of a part... and or probability that it might fail. For example... BMW cant test 100 cars with the same parts.. to see how many out of those cars' parts will fail. Its not pratical.. so every now and then you might get a bad egg out of the batch. And if it is a vital part that is the part that fails.. a part will cause others parts to not work at or near their intended operation.

Problems

Mine is a E60 Late 2007 520d with the tweaked engine.

Problems:
Fuel System Problems (BMW Admitted Flaw-Replaced)
OBC Issues (Replaced)
Bluetooth connect ability failure (Replaced, cost me nearly 2.5k US)
The bluetooth is a big problem, since i live in Taiwan, every part is exported therefore twice as expensive. The Bluetooth was alright and working before my 50k checkup, and when the car came back, which they resetted the computer, the bluetooth stopped working. This really sucks, because I have to pay for that.

I got really pissed off therefore the manager gave me a lifetime 30 percent off for all maintenance )

Issue #2, can you define a while? seconds or minutes? I have had similar issues lasting only like 5-10 seconds while I am in DS mode.

Vibration: most likely you just need your wheels re-balanced. Very common symptoms and easy, inexpensive solution.

When you say “car stays revved up” are you talking just about rpms or also speed (does car not begin to decelerate)? That’s critical info to know before trying to begin to diagnose issue. Fact that fuel consumption gauge runs consistent with tach may be noteworthy. Assuming car does NOT continue to accelerate, likely a software issue. OBDII reader can scan for fault code(s) and guide tech to specific issue. Likely not a very costly problem.

Most likely air mass control sensor needs replacement. Inexpensive.
