I am getting some Lambda errors in the enhanced diagnostics. Some of them reporting unburnt fuel (i had a misfire issue a while back) and some talking about Trim in banks 1 and 2.

This is starting to look like maybe 02 sensors as someone said earlier in this thread. Gonna look today.

If they are old enough I would replace them. OEM only (don't make the mistake many of us have of "renting" some crappy O₂ sensors).

Not sure their age. Thatís why Iím leaning (har har) towards just doing them.

Is Bosch OEM? The bmw dealer has to order them and Iím on a time crunch to get it smogged.

Will they work long enough to ready up and pass then I can swap when the good ones come in?

OK, I have updates. I have replaced the O2 sensors with Bosch O2 sensors and that has not solve the problem. it still will not complete the drive cycle. Does anybody have any other suggestions?

Anything electrical?

Timing and fuel injectors would be my next check. Do you have a power probe to check injector pulse?

Is there a smoke test I can do to check for vac leaks? I did a crankcase smoke test and found the PCV failures, hence that was replaced.
There are several youTube videos that show how to makes a good inexpensive smoke tester out of a paint can. I made one and it works great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Np_duzsaZxI
