+1 but it could also be the throttle body harness. I replaced my TB first but got the errors again after 300 miles. Wasn't until I spliced on a new harness that the errors went away.

I went from a 2008 E70 4.8i to a 2013 E71 X6M. The performance of the X6M is way better than my e70. No regrets at all!
