I just started experiencing the exact same thing in my 328i. My codes are P1188 and P1189. Might be related to intake or fuel is my guess. Going to investigate further.

^^are they noisy or harsh riding? Powerflex are urethane. I've been down that road before. Perhaps in my old age I just don't want to deal with harsh rides and squeeks anymore.
