X1 down for hessitation on hard acceleration

my N20 X1 started to hessitate more and more after about 3000 miles. While I was on a 400mi road trip it stuttered so bad that the engine went into limp mode and would not let me shift above 6th gear. The Service Engine Light was flashing, so I had to stop and resstart the car. After restarting it seemed to run fine until I demanded more from the engine. It did this repeatedly so I had to turn the car into service at a local dealer while on my trip.

Based on the codes, they only adjusted the fuel trim and said it road tested fine. The problem persists and I drove the car home conservatively.

It's back at the dealer now and they've had it for 3 days. Not sure what's going on... Anyone else experience anything similar? I'll keep you posted on what the fix was.

The only good thing to come out of this a lots of courtesy car time in an F30 for comparison, which I will post on another thread for those who are deciding btwn the X1 and the F30.
