Went from +11's on both banks to under +-2 at warm idle. And both 0420 and 0430 keep triggering. With the crazy cold, it's been higher but I don't know if that's expected or not.

325i sedan M54

You think I should try adding some lacquer thinnner to the tank when 1/2 full and drive on it to clean the system out? Also will clean the MAF tomorrow.

I actually did the oil change at the same time. Castrol Edge STP 5w-40 LL-01.

Thanks for all your help. Should I just reset the code, or drive it to see if it will go out by itself?
