My friend's E46 325iT had been battling the problem since 45,000 miles, our Z4 3.0i had this show up shortly befor we turned it in at the end of lease. Every single BMW I have had or owned by friend has had this "problem" eventually needing a replacement sensor or cleaning of the contacts so far, except the MZ4 Coupe but I expect that to happen eventually too.
I guess can understand the fact that it will happen eventually. Even though I've never heard of anyone on the our ohio board, e46f, bimmerforums having this problem with the E46 when I owned it.

How can a sensor go bad like this then after it's gone in for replacement 3 times and within the same year period it magically goes bad again?
