DRY. Dry as a bone. Both of them.

Interesting.
A few things, are you tracking/Logging the codes you are getting. EVERY time the SES or other error lights come on you need to read codes, get Freeze Frame data and SAVE the info with the Date and Mileage. This is critical so you can build the story about what is going on.

While you may have found the connections "Bone Dry" this does not tell the entire story. The DME could have oil contamination INSIDE. While not likely the oil could have traveled to the pedal position sensors connector or throttle position sensor or the throttle motor. Careful inspection of these other connectors is suggested.

Given you may have ongoing problem, you may need to get the BMW Scanner 1.4.0 software and cable so you can look closer at the ABS and Throttle control system. This would allow you to see any errors related to the ABS and Throttle control system.
