The P0340 DTC just might be telling you to replace the camshaft position sensor.

change the crankshaft positon sensor in the rear of the engine above the oilfilter. Also check the wiring to this sensor, they have a problem shorting out. You have to change the camshaft and crankshaft sensors at the same time. Make sure you give your car a major tune up. Did you check yor starter?.........runjoe

My thought is to get a refund from the shop that tried to replace parts in order to secure your problem. The job of the shop is to diagnose the problem, not to replace items that may be the problem. Chrysler Master Techs are not trained to just replace parts, they fix the problem by diagnosing it properly.
You need to see a Chrysler dealership so they can attach a DRBIII and tell you exactly what is at stake.
I hope this helps you. I would be mad as heck.
I would not think the plugs and wires would be the problem because they would all have to fail at the same time to provide the symptom you experienced.

If you took this in and had BMW do the work to fix it and it is not fixed why do you not return to BMW and get it fixed, If you have paid for a repair and the repair did not solve the problem have them refund your money.
