I've had those same codes for awhile but cleaning the MAF didn't seem to help. Let me know what you find out cuz I'm not sure what to do next

Your MAF is probably fine, more likely cracks post-MAF in the intake boot and inlet tube. Just replaced mine yesterday after those codes, and no problems.

I cleaned it out today and I felt more throttle response and power back, I only drove it for like 3 - 5 miles, I need to drive it a little more and I'm sure it'll go away soon. I just hit 100k so cleaning it was worth it ! I'm going to drive it around tomorrow.

For your sake I hope it fixes the codes.... I cleaned the MAF and resealed the DISA but like the previous post^^^ I'm going back the intake boot to look more for cracks. Those codes have been a real PITA for me

My car received a second facelift. But this one was done by an old van and Honda Accord; not by BMW.

I will be selling everything that I was able to get off the car. Suspension was already sold. I'll have to do some research to see what to sell everything for.

Just a few phone pics.
- Blue LED interior lighting
- White vinyl over the rear black bumper guard
- LED license plate lights

And i wanted some opinions on my next potential mod so i photoshopped picture of the middle portion of my front bumper blacked out. Any opinions would be appreciated.
