Unhappy Unbelievable: problems already!


I picked the car up on Tuesday, it is Friday and there is already a problem. There are less than 500KM on the car and it has an ABS/DSC/DBC malfunction indicators going off. I can't turn on DSC, nor can I use cruise control. I am visiting the German dealer in the morning. The faults will not clear with restarts, and I am not going to tamper with anything at this point as far as resetting the ECU via a battery disconnect. I am not sure that that will clear the fault codes in this modern ECU anyway.

It is a crying shame that my car came off the line not 2 weeks ago, and I have to take it back to the dealership during my first week of ownership.

Until the malfunction indications appeared, I was having a blast. This car is a lot of fun even below 5500 RPM and without full throttle. I still love it, and am giving Bimmer the benefit of the doubt with respect to the issue.

What a way to ruin a Saturday.

Are these common problems with the E90?

Sorry for the rant, I am just disappointed.
