The fuel pump went out on my 01 330ci yesterday. It has two fuel pumps, I assume a "master" that pumps fuel to the rail and a "slave" that pumps fuel over the driveshaft. The one that's bad for sure...

It wasn't the gas cap. I seem to remember my e39 behaving similarly when a cam position sensor went out, but it caused a CEL. I have the 1.4.0 scanner coming in the mail, maybe that will tell more....

My e39 had plastic lenses and xenons with no trouble. They were aftermarket lights, and I think the HIDs were just 35w. 55w I have no idea about.

You could have gotten both the intake and exhaust CPS online, OEM parts, for the price of just the one aftermarket sensor at Autozone.
