"Chassis" Warning

While driving a few days ago, I got a "Chassis" warning with the advisory "Drive Moderately". Cannot detect anything different in how the car drives. Thought it might be a spurious fault and that it might go away after a few start/stop cycles, but it keeps coming up every time I start the car, and I have to press the controller to proceed with other iDrive functions. Anyone here had this condition? Guess I'll have to take it in to the dealer but would like to be forewarned if there is any info on what may be the problem. Any advice welcome!

I had that happen to me on a loaner X3. Told the SA when I dropped the car, and she said we'll look into it.

Maybe you can go to a shop/automotive store to have them pull the code. This way you won't be guessing and can be prepared when you go to the dealer.

Good luck!

Had you done any changes to the driving 'mode' (or whatever it's called), e.g., sport, comfort, etc.? I've not seen that message.
