showing similar problems. bmw have changed spark plugs,electronic
water pump to the turbos. gave me the car back only to my disgust
that after 2 days came up with same fault as before.

car is back with bmw, now waiting for water tank to arrive from
germany.

I'll bite.... Is it a 2015? I didn't think they made a 2014.

Are you stock or tuned?

For some very strange reason the F80 which was launched and sold in 2014 is known as MY15 in the US, I think they do that with all cars.
