Car throws error at 120 MPH

I have been babying my 2012 ActiveHybrid for the last month and a half since I picked her up. I drive my older E66 occasionally to keep the miles low on the 2012. The other day, at about 7PM, I'm coming home from work on the turnpike where traffic was light and an Audi TT wanted to play. So I easily beat him (older TT with single exhaust so less HP than current models) but at about 120 MPH (please no lectures on speeding) I receive the error "Maximum engine output not possible, reduce speed". I had lost the ability to accelerate at that time but as I reduced speed the error disappeared and all was normal. I did not try to achieve that speed again. So I will add this to the list for BMW service to check out when I take her in soon.

Problems so far:
  • Audio cuts out for no reason when listening to any source
  • High pitched whine from rear AC (definitely the fan)
  • Occasional rough idle (has to be the other bank of injectors that weren't replaced yet)

So far I haven't noticed any oil consumption problems, the level is still at MAX.

Jerry

I've run my car up to 140mph indicated, and routinely past 120mph during delivery on the autobahn. Nothing like that. However, it was March, and it was cooler.

I have felt, what I think is power reduction, on a hot day auto crossing (over 90), but no warning message.

I've maxed mine out (well, maxed for me before I got nervous) at about 110mph. No issues other than crapping myself

One of the many things I very much liked about my F01.

With the pedalbox, the damn thing takes off like a rocket.

You know I just got your whole signature pick? Man, Im slow on the uptake sometimes. Hybrid with the backdrop of a nuclear power station. Not sure how I missed that. Sorry to hear about the issues. That TT V8 seems tricky.
