Go to the dealer and buy the CPS and install it yourself. In a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the toughest DIY, this is a "1"!

I took my e46 M3 to a friend to do inspection 2 on it and other maintenance. . After opening the engine he found out that what was triggering that code was a broken exhaust camshaft sprocket.....He said he has worked on around 100 e46 M3 and that was the first time he saw that happen...... so for you I'm sure it's something simple. ...bcuz my car had a noise in the engine after the light came on
