Help with fault codes

Friend of mine pulled these codes from his e60 m5. Where should he start?

How many miles on car? How long have these codes plagued you?


You can try swapping your ionic modules to different banks to see if the codes follow. If it does, bad ionic module

Try swapping MAFs to different banks to see if the codes follow

You can try running a vanos test to see if it is showing any useful information

He's getting misfires on all cylinders. Not just one.

Thanks for everyone who replied. Just wanted to update this thread.

Vanos lines were leaking oil. There was metal in the oil as well. So the bearings had to be changed. He didn't want to do the work so he put it on sale and someone bought it for 8k. I guess he got a good deal. It had 120k miles on it.
