The video of that 130i owner shows, partly, exactly the same behaviour..

No joke, really.

And the culprit was according to my dealer the PDC module. Which FYI I lost without any warning whatsoever...

And it all started after an 2 hours "spirited" (read WOT) drive in the rain. The crazy thing was that I could drive for 1 hour or more without any problem and then suddenly everything went nuts. After stopping and restarting all errors were cleared... And that is why I started to take pictures.... I knew no one would believe it.

@artemis: sorry, but I could not let anyone accuse me of being nuts due to drugs etc. Thanks anyway for sharing my story here. Your English is much more eloquent than mine!
It was just a joke. I am sorry that you got it seriously. I am sure that it really happened the way you described. I believe you guys, peace
