Mein Auto: 2011 X5
Reduced power 2011 X5 35i

Just purchased a 2011 X5 35i two weeks ago, 40,000 miles, drove for 4 days when an engine malfunction reduced power notice flashed up, turned off vehicle and notice was gone, took to the dealership 100+ miles away and they have had the vehicle for 10 days as of today. I have been told the turbo is building too much pressure and is why its throwing the code. The BMW factory tech said it was a air pressure sensor, replaced and it threw the warning again. They ordered another part but I have a strong feeling no one knows what is going on. Can someone shed some light on this. I know when Turbos build too much pressure engines go bad and I am very worried about what happens when warranty runs out. I believe they should offer extended warranty for this problem or at least half off! I love the vehicle but am real close to going back to Acura.
