I have to get an axle replaced, so i'll just bring it to BMW to see what they say (I am assuming O2 sensor...). Nevetheless, the car runs wonderfully. A huge difference, I just wish the check engine light didn't come on...
Take it to Autozone and have it scanned. They can print out the code so will give you a heads up before you go to the dealer. Actually, most autopart stores have them, the first one I went to would not clear the code....said..."We can't do that." He also had no clue what he was doing, I had to show him the port, then he could not unplug it, had to do it for him. He did after pimp buying a 150 dollar one so I can do it myself....LOL. If you meet someone like that, just drive up the street to another store.

Just my 2 cents.
