We don't know what's wrong either. There's a lot of things it could be,

However, your car has set one or more codes in the ECU that will give you information on what it could be. You'll need to pull any codes using a BMW-specific reader (the Bavarian Technic tool, the BMWhat app, etc.). A generic reader (the kind used at AutoZone) will likely not give you the information needed.

With code(s) in hand, we can give you some meaningful advice. Otherwise, we're just guessing blind. That can get expensive fast.

Everything is not fine! Zooks got it - read error codes the computer's stored.

See, you gotta warning, you stored a code. HERE or see Indy mechanic. Dealer? A sucker punch.

You're new to BMW - broke right off the bat - spendin' cash t'fix? That the way it's gonna be?

Dude! Welcome to the 'Fest....you baptized.

Do you notice any loss of power or just a half engine light? Symptoms?

Don't race it and see if light comes back on .. If it doesn't - you know what makes it pop? (your car just doesnt like it) LOL

My guess is the the HPFP is beginning to fail. Couldn't keep up with the amount of fuel needed when at speed. There should be a code stored.

I used to have that happen when stepping on it and heating it up. BMW replaced the injectors and now I have only had that happen again when I lost boost pressure or vacuum pressure that operated the wastegates on the turbos. All simple fixes. After the injectors, I never had any codes stored either.
