I just went to my car and did the procedure described here and went for a test drive. I was about to sh!t myself because the hesitation is GONE and I only drove for like 20min. I only did this procedure on the intake and exhaust Vanos solenoids and there is no more hesitation. there seems to be bit in 6th gear but that just might be the uneven road. Other gears are clear.

I will do this on other connectors later on.

Thank you very much for this info.
That's good to hear!
