A faulty camshaft position sensor causes a variety of issues including hard starts or stalling at low speeds. You may also have a service engine soon light on which can have a variety of codes associated with this sensors failure.

This is from the OE Supplier to BMW. It is the exact part you get from the BMW dealer, only the BMW logo has been scratched off. This is done for trademark purposes so that they can supply directly to outside suppliers.

We suggest replacing the camshaft position sensor o-ring to prevent potential oil leaks after replacement: 12141748398

About Engine Camshaft Position Sensors

The engine camshaft position sensor tells the car's computer the position of the camshaft in its rotation for the purposes of things like firing spark and adjusting valve timing (if applicable). An indication of a faulty sensor might include hard starts, stalling at low speeds, check engine light and poor performance.
