P0015

I scanned my 2008 M3 E90 coz CEL is on. Only upgrade is MPE. It rides fine with no difference. Any thoughts where would I start? Thanks.

Dealer changed the camshaft vanos solenoid. We have 2 of them camshaft and intake solenoid. I had dealer do both of them and fixed the problem. Good luck!

I have P0011 which is very similar except it's Intake camshaft A too advanced. Hoping a new VANOS solenoid will help me as well!
