I'm not expert - but it dying like that and then taking off could be a sign it wasn't doing well to begin with....

Did I cause this? Or were the weird launches an early sign of the turbo dying

The models and equipment (standard and optional) illustrated in this post reflect my misunderstanding of vehicles supplied by BMW AG to the German market. In other EU member states, the truthyness of my posts may vary. Please ignore this post. Subject to change.
