Update: Picked up my car from the dealer yesterday, it was in fact the radiator fan! Dealership confirmed that the radiator fan had failed and as a result the computer was in a protective mode so it was operating with reduced power (not like limp mode in most of the newer bimmers). Fortunately, my car registered a fault and the "EML" (engine management electronics) light came on when I was bringing it back to the dealer, so it made it easier for them to diagnose. Thanks to all on this forum, I was able to diagnose the problem and lead the tech to the problem.....without the code they would have been totally lost....last day of CPO warranty!
