Default Engine Check light Fuel pump?

In the last month I have had a few weird things happen on my 2000 S3.

Several times the check engine light would come on and I never really had any issues I could pin it on. I checked the codes via ECM Spy and it indicated a fuel pump issue. I was going to have it serviced any way and had the shop order a pump for it. The supplier sent the wrong part, but I had to have the bike back due to transportation issues and when I got it back, I didn't have any issues at all (it used to happen once a day on the highway at 70+).

A couple of days later, I was getting on the throttle while navigating the twisties on the way home and hit the rev limiter. The bike did not recover and I had to flick the switch off and back on and then once I started it it ran fine for a while, but the next day, I got the check engine light again (again on the highway), and sure enough it indicated the fuel pump. A few days later I hit a patch of gravel and slid into a ditch (minor scuffs and broken mirror), so I took it to the shop for an estimate of repairs, and had them replace the fuel pump that they had since received.

No issues for a bit, then the other day while heading to work, I get the check engine light and it seems to be starved for fuel (rough running) until I accelerate and it seems to clear up.

Any one have any ideas what to check next? The only code thrown up is for the fuel pump.
