Wow, I was told bimmer brakes were a complete replacement(pads/rotors)but that was from the indy shop I've moved on from.

Thanks, I'll be placing an order from BMA parts next week.

P2440

Air flow when there should be no air flow.

Any ideas? The code was reset and remains off for 63 miles but I'm shifting under 3K.

I plan to get my inspection Tuesday morning just in case.

It turns out I got a p2440 code. It cleared and I've driven 63 miles without a return.

I won't be doing my usual "get inspected on the first day of the next month".
