Engine rpm drops abnormally quickly. Check engine light illuminates if rpm not maintained above 1,800rpm. Trouble codes for Lambda 1 and 2, O2 sensors 1 and 2, mass air flow sensor - all present as
retrieved by bavarian autosport scan/reset tool. If codes are reset - car acts normal until rpms are allowed to drop below 1800 rpm for more than 10 seconds. Then car runs very roughly until reset with tool - and cycle repeats. Worse in cold weather.
