So, it turns out the software update didn't solve anything. I've been thrown into limp mode a few more times in the last week. Still throwing the codes for throttle actuator bank 2, it needs to be replaced. My SA submitted for goodwill and I just got the call....BMW is willing to cover 40% of the repair, which they estimated to be around $2K total.
I've gotta say, I'm not satisfied with this response. I started getting these faults about a week out of warranty and the car only has 37K miles on it. There's nothing they can say to convince me it's within the normal scope of operation for a throttle actuator to fail at this kind of mileage. What are my options here? Call BMWNA customer relations and escalate?
