Unhappy Let's play pictionary, what's this dash light means for 2007 BMW335i coupe?

Please see the pics. This light came on when I exited the highway and stopped at the stop light. Can some one please tell me what's this light means and what's the best way to solve the issue? and is the temp normal, its about 230 degress. My car is under CPO warranty.. Thanks in advance...

Looks like a check engine light. I would get your codes read at a local AutoZone then post the codes here and maybe someone will be able to help you.

I looked all over the user's manual and I couldn't find that exact light. In any case, it is a picture of an engine, which means you should probably take your car to teh dealership right away (or call first and ask them). I am only suggesting you go to the dealership because your car is still under warranty.

I looked all over the manual too, and couldn't find the matching light, I guess will have to take it to the dealer, if there's going to be a problem its probably better to have it happen earlier while the car is still under warranty.

i think its strange how the temperature gauge needle positoned when temp is normal, people do like to see their temp needles in the middle instead 2/3s of the way.

took the car to the dealer, exhaust and camshaft has worn grooves in to the bearing ledges, replaced both bearing ledges. Defect code: 11-31-21-26-00. Is this a big deal? Fourtunately I have warranty, how much would this repair cost if I have to pay out of pocket?

Sounds like some sort of lubrication system failure. Nasty.
