I have recently purchased my first V8 BMW
Last weekend I drove it away on holiday and it went so well there.
However on the return trip home it was pelting down with rain, I stopped half way home for a break, the car was not running for about 2 hours.
It came time to finish the return trip home; the roads were busy so I needed to gun it to merge into the traffic.
THEN! The car suddenly lost all power and a message came up on the screen in front of the steering wheel saying something about fail safe?? The car proceeded to run roughly until I switched it off once I reached the side of the road. It started fine and has done since but now when the engine is warm it dies out sometimes when I need to stop at lights or the like. I haven’t noticed that it does this when its cold as it revs slightly higher being when cold…
Also some times when I put my foot down now it kind of misfires and takes a wile to get full power… to me, its like maybe running on 6 then after a wile flicks to 8??
Any suggestions would help me a lot…
