Question Erratic idling and knockin on gearing down

BMW 2004 318I SPORTS PACK - The valve stem seals was done and the "top" was put back again, after that there was an erratic idling and there was a knockin/kicking sound coming from the back of the car when the car is gearing down when slowing down. The diagnostic showed the following possible causes for the problem.
Then I took it to another work shop, where I was told it could not be the Valvetronic system but the timing of the engine is way out and was adjusted, beautiful job was done. The engine still idles a bit erratic and the "kick" on gearing down still there. So I believe the next step would be to check the computer box and and valve tronic.
Any other ideas?
