its possible that you paid for 93 but actually got 87. you yourself said your ecu was programmed to only work with 93 correct?
its good theory, but i dont think that 87 will not allow the car to start, that would stupid for BMW to program a car to only work with 93, I am sure if he got 87 his car would just run like crap, not not start
