Is this a reoccuring thing? Is the light staying on or does it shut off after a while? How many miles do you have on the car? IF you have an auto, it may need to be rebuilt depending on the mileage. Have the code read by a local BMW tech, as this will give you a lot more info as to the problem (code48= Solenoid valve, code40=pressure regulator, etc.)

The sulphur smell is undoubtedly a catalytic converter. If it goes away, let it slide, a new cat is not cheap. If it gets consistent, well, that sucks, er stinks.



Skawful: can you help our boy out with your "magic pen" Im spliting up everytime i scroll through this thread...

Are you seeing any problems with your tranny? Like tonight my light came on for the first time with the same warning and my car won't go out of third and it's having a real hard time just moving... I think it might be stuck in third... but anways, more details man. I'd take it to your local bmw shop...

Make sure you get the manual differential. Otherwise your top speed will be like 90 mph and you'll cruise at 5k at 60 mph.

Did you buy it from a dealer? Any warranty on it?
Did you get the owner's manual with it?
Prolly should pick one up so you will be able to look up the codes/icons.
