Emissions warning light.....

Came on this morning on the way to work.

I know it's not a loose gas cap as I checked it and the last time I put gas in the vehicle was a week ago and it just came on. I'm thinking Q2 sensor or something. Car still drives absolutely fine though.

They were out of loaners for the day so I made an appointment for monday morning for them to take a look at it.

Anyone else have this problem? Car has just shy of 2500 miles on it.

Oh, and it's a 2013 328i X0drive.

i had this happen on an audi once, and it turned out i had to have my catalytic converter replaced .

im assuming if your car is pretty new, its probably faulty O2 though. unless you got a freak defective catalytic converter

They have it now. The warning light went out yesterday so I'm thinking somehow it's a fuel vapor issue. Weird though as it came on 4 days after I fueled up.

But, I wanted it checked out and it's as good a time as any to have them do the "last setting" coding for the ASS.

They didn't even give me an guff about it. Of course I pulled out a copy of the service bulletin when I told them I wanted it done to avoid any argument, but there wasn't any.

Was a software issue. Fixed. Plus I got ASS recoded as well.

On a high note, I took out a 5 series again as the loaner.

I may have to get one of these down the road. Not quite as fun to drive as a 3 series, but that is one hell of a nice luxury car.
