this could be caused by poor gas, or intake and exhaust vanos solenoids, first try filling the tank with high test gas with low ethenol content,run through a couple of tanks, if still occuring your solenoids may be gummed up, they are located at the front of the cyl head and help in by 1 10mm screw, remove and blow clean with compressed,also be sure to change your oil more freequently than cbs indicator suggests.

If it's not under the hood, then the only other place BMW places their batteries is in the trunk. Since it's a Sport Wagon, pull up where the rear spare would be and it will be there, usually on the right hand side.
Hope this Helps,

The number was on a white card stuck in with the manual binder. Or if you don't have it, its located in the trunk, behind the left nav access panel on a silver "TCU" module about the size of 2 vhs tapes stacked together. if you look at the eject button on the nav player its located just to the right and is installed on about a 45 degree angle.
there is a white lable with the "PK" on it. i used a small telescoping mirror but you can also slightly pull back the trunk liner above the unit and it will be easily located. If any of this options works go to Bmw dealer for service and we found it in car computer.

it came with a 90 ah battery and if you replace it you should have ot registered to the power module probably by a dealership or you can experience electrical issues
