Mein Auto: Mini Cooper Convertible
Unhappy Help!!!

Hello
I have a mini cooper convertible and last month it was 1 year old.
1 hour ago I had a catastrophic failure, I went to pick up my son from his friends house and when he got in the car he noticed that the engine warning light was on, well I turned the car off and back on 2 times and the light went off ( I know what was I thinking ) I drove to the shop 1 mile away turned off the car, got a few things came back out started it again and I was engulfed with the rotten egg smell, so I drove home with the windows down. When I got back I turned off the car, turned the ignition to on (still no warning lights) turned it off, turned it on and started the engine. Now the battery warning light is on, the oil warning light is on, the EML light is on AND the engine warning light is on, I walked to the back of the car with the engine still on and could not breathe.

What could have happened the mini has done 7800 miles its still 1200 miles from its service?

Boy, I've heard that one before. If there's another dealership nearby, I'd give them a try.
