You did not state the yr of your model. A very typical problem in early e46 engines were in the Vanos. Does the car stutter or stall in cold weather starts? Does it hold it's idle? How is the power? DO you suffer power loss below 3000 rpm? These problems are related to a Vanos problem.....

It sounds like one of your rotors may be warped. Depending on the condition of the rotors, you can have them machined true again. If they are too worn/bad, they'd need replaced.

How much fuel pressure does a 1997 bmw 540i require

why are you asking the fuel pressure. It doesn't make sense, because once the fuel pump are failing, the car will stop and won't start. Tell straight what do you observe about your car, engine shaking, not enough power, or what, or need to scan or diagnose your Bmer to solve your problem. ok

2006 BMW 523i shaking in the mornings

Strange, it sounds like you've got a dead spark plug, but that would be continuous, not only in the morning, the other explanation could be that the engine management is injecting too much fuel, flooding the cylinder, and wetting the spark plug, which would explain why you need to wait 5 mins for the fuel to evaporate. Try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes to reset the EMS, if that doesn't help, get to a workshop and let them check the EMS with a computer, the electric choke may be sending the wrong signals to the EMS. Hope this helps!
