No, I never did. However, the issue got a lot better, to the point where it only happens a few times a year, so I just left it alone.
That being said, I have found it's definitely triggered by hot weather, and in particular whenever it gets too hot under the hood. So far this year it's triggered twice when I've started the car after it's been in the sun for hours getting hot. The other times that it happens is when it's hot out and I'm stuck in traffic or pulled over somewhere, so there isn't much airflow to cool things under the hood. Naturally it never happens in the fall or winter. Sorry that I can't be of more help.

Thanks. My GL320 developed the same problem and have the same triggers as your. Code I've seen is U140A, right front sensor. It ohm out ok. Will do one more test this weekend before ordering a new speed sensor.

Weird thing is that I have almost the same problem (but with DSC + TPM lights) with my BWM M3 for almost a year now.

Thanks for the info.
