Due to the complexity of our cars, these error messages can be due to a multitude of problems. Although some of this has been discussed and can be found though doing a search, occasionally people who haven't posted on this have had a similar problem with a resolution that has not yet been discussed and cannot be found solely through doing a search. Therefore in some instances, topics like this might be worth revisiting.
Case in point--I recently had the identical error messages shortly after having the Dinan intakes and Stage 3 software installed, and had to have my Dinan throttle bodies replaced (after I used the search tool, I didn't post on the subject partly because I didn't want to get the famous "do a search" response). Apparently the most recent version of the TB's are made a little differently, preventing this problem from occurring with the new Dinan intakes. So far I have yet to get the message again.
OTDoc, I think you need to bring this to your local BMW dealer for diagnostics and contact Dinan as well. I know you don't have the Dinan TB's but it is remotely possible that you might need to have these in order to prevent this error occurring with the new intakes.
