That's it, when i could not open the cap to refuel because of the module, I decide now was the time, with the changing weather in NY to revisit those board level soldering days, I took the unit out relatively easy thanks to our site, had ordered the relay last yr from http://www.bmwgm5.com/ after an incident where my girlfriend (now wife) could not get in and i could not get out.
Made i think 3 trips to radio shack for a more powerful soldering iron and some cutters, decided it was too much work to unsolder and crushed the 2 relays leaving just the pins to unsolder out. works perfectly now.
The board was not easy, You need the right tools.
