HELP - 2011 x5 ---- What a POS!

These new BMWs are pieces of shit. Absolutely ridiculous. I owned a 2005 330ci for 6 years without any issues at all. This x5 has spent more time in the shop than on the road!

Problem:
- engine light goes on for a day or two, randomly clears itself upon start up
- jerks while driving, puts itself in neutral, and dies.
- doesn't start, just turns over
- after multiple start attempts, dies right after I put it in drive
- after letting her sit for 10 mins, starts and drives fine for a couple days

Codes:
p1030 - Valvetronic motor
p2178 - Idle too rich
p0087 - Fuel rail pressure too low

I'm thinking:
- eccentric shaft sensor
- valvetronic motor itself


Any experiences? Anybody resolve this? I'm trying to avoid being bent over by BMW Service and Parts yet again....

Just a wild azz guess, but could be a Hurricane Sandy car that floated out on the mkt...

Just curious: how does a person in YYZ buy a used car from a KY used car dlr, and why?

Wait, you imported a used car from Kentucky to Canada and you bought it from an independent dealer?

Was it a smoking deal, any Carfax report or local inspection?

That I did not know this morning...accident history? Service records? Did you drive it up or was it delivered? Did you see it in person for a test drive? etc...
