BMW E9x M3 Limp Mode....video of what it actually looks like

Every wondered what Limp Mode looks like when the E9x M3 throttle actuators go out? Where here you go! This is as of now. I hope I can get the car home, I should be able to but time to rebuild my throttle actuators. Thankfully I bought the gears a month ago. Will be doing a follow up video on how it goes using some of the instructions I found online from some of the members of the forums.

Just a small video show what limp mode actually looks like. 12 years of BMW ownership I've never physically seen it and I'm sure many others haven't too. Videos are much better than reading forums and trying to figure it out for yourself through descriptions.....wouldn't you agree?
