If you replaced the intake cam sensor and the fault came back then either the exhaust cam sensor needs to be replaced as well or the sensor that was installed is faulty. How are you obtaining the fault code? If you are reading the faults with a generic scanner, then it may not pick up that there is a distinction between the intake and exhaust camshaft sensors. Resetting of the adaptations can be performed by the more sophisticated aftermarket scanners or the BMW proprietary software(used at the dealership and referred to as the GT-1) and may not be needed in your case. The cam sensors do fail especially if they are original equipment. I suggest replacement of the exhaust cam sensor, try realoem. Com for BMW parts online, then clear the faults and try it again.
