Sadly my 2012 X5 35d is currently at Tulley BMW in Nashua NH getting looked at to diagnose a Check Engine Light or SES (Service Engine Soon in BMW-speak), multiple codes thrown and way down in power due to limp mode from throwing the codes. Reduced power in limp mode is such that it can't maintain highway speed and almost can't climb the hill in my neighborhood. Car was running excellent and power and MPGs were all where they should be prior to this happening over the weekend and gave no prior warning. Car currently has 95k miles on it, bought used (CPO deal) at 52k miles. This is the first time it has ever thrown a code or misbehaved at all.

Fortunately the X5 35d is still under CPO warranty. What eventually comes of this will determine whether I decide to keep it past warranty if the root cause turns out to be a recurring issue.

My money is on egr valve, but it will be emission related I'm sure. I wouldn't know of such issues on my X5D.............
