Schomp just called. SES (Service Engine Soon, Increased Emissions) was apparently caused by bad fuel pressure sensor and fuel pump.
When my SA asked, I told him (as if he couldn't hear it
) about the new exhaust and that I was pretty certain it had nothing to do with the error codes since I didn't replace anything that would cause a CEL. Also told him I'd done some spirited driving Sunday and went into limp mode briefly. Short story: it's being fixed under warranty... and I'm buying the USAA Assurant extended warranty for $1800 before the factory one expires May 23.
I don't think they'll be able to do any SW updates / flash the CPU because I left the 09+ iDrive control knob installed. I remember reading doing so prohibits updates because it's not a factory installed part number - it was a strategic decision after we talked.
I get the car back Monday or Tuesday (driving a new X3 for now which is pretty good, for what it is!), have NASA Time Trials at PPIR next weekend. I'm in for a Dyno Day after that though!
....and now we're completely
from the thread llis started. Sorry L!
