2010 1200 gsa chatters at cold start up and stalls

Hi. I can see this problem is more common than I thought. I had an alternator belt break off last Sept. with less than 30,000 km and have noticed a chatter on cold start almost everytime. While it doesn't appear to cause any trouble, it doesn't sound right. Stalling has occurred whlie downshifting to first gear with a warm engine, and throttle blip when cold or warm intermittently causes a miss. I will discuss this with my local dealer and add that this site includes a number of similar concerns. Recently, my fuel gauge failing caused me to run out of fuel with the gauge showing a half tank. My local BMW shop claims poor Chinese quality components are a culprit.
