M3 E93 ..ENGINE ERROR...reduced power..limp mode.. :(

Hello everyone..

today i started my m3.. and after only 5 min cruising.. it gave an error... ENGINE error and reduced power...
it never happens.. my car only has 35k km

I've read the errors.. and it says...

"throttle adaptation values incorrect..."

and... the worst..i think..

misfire, cylinder 5...

what does this mean? big problem?

Could be ignition coil or spark plug....worst...injector..

Unplug the spark plug and see if the plugs are bad or switch ignition coils if the misfire on 5 changes to other cylinder section.
