Mein Auto: 2013 535Xi M Sport
Not even a week old..Faulty Throttle Valve!!

So I picked up my new car Thurs last week (2013 535XI M Sport). As my training session is going on in the car, a porter opens the passenger door gives the trainer a towel and shuts the door. As the training continues, the passenger door open indicator is on and stays on....door was closed, locked, etc...we turned the car off for 30 miutes to "recycle". Even as the doors were locked, the outside door handle lights remained on too!! Nobody knew what was wrong...2 hours later problem solved. Hasn't happened since that day.
Now the next 3 days, I got an intermittent Engine-shaped light, WTH!! Shut off the car for a few minutes and it went away.....and so on. The last 3 days, NO PROBLEMS! Great right, took it to service today just to make sure all is well. I was told I need a new throttle valve, and it's on back order for 2-3 weeks!!

Has anyone experienced these issues? I'm just very frustrated, special build 8 weeks ago, and now this. I hope I'm not destined for the horrors I've read. I really love this car, gets a ton of looks and respect!! Not on the road, but at some restaurants....GREAT PARKING!! Please give me your thoughts. Thank you all in advance. Pics to come soon, once completed!!
