Then I have to stop for 10-15min,turn on the engine again and everything goes back to normal. Also sometimes I get this 'high emissions, service engine soon' . When I had it checked by the BMW dealership, they said that most US models have these problems due to the difference in benzine between europe and the US. They also suggested to change the fuel injectors and replace them with the european version. Any clues how to fix this? Thnx
Wasn't aware that US spec and Euro spec had different fuel injectors. I can tell you that this sounds like a bunch of BS. I can hit 200 km/h easily over and over without a single error or hitch. Hell, the car even likes to go 180+ MPH.
