F10 550i Xdrive- drivetrain malfunction 1,400 miles only!

hello, New to this forum sadly my first post it a problem!

yesterday i saw message come up on the screen saying drivetrain malf, max output not available. I barely had any power and the car was kinda shaking (only the driver could feel it )

I got of the highway and turned my car off for a min and turned it back on and everything was fine. i looked up others who have had this problem and everyone has there own thing that needed to be fixed.

car only has 1,400-1,500 miles on it i am surprised to see a error like that


i havent modded the car yet, only a muffler delete.

Should i take it out if i take it to the dealer, its only gonna cost me $50 bucks.

its a 2013 550i x-drive.

any suggestions would be appreciated thanks!

I wouldn't sweat the muffler delete.... get it to the dealer for diagnosis. I hope it gets sorted out for you.

Had the same thing happen, it was a bad injector. Got it fixed.....and now my 550 is in the shop for the same thing. Likely will need to get all replaced but have to argue with them. Ugh...

EDIT. Just talked to dealer. They are replacing ALL the injectors this time. Didn't even have to ask. Go BMW Houston north!

My guess injectors had mine replaced with only 4200 miles . No big deal get it replaced and enjoy it .

Another not could you post up a sound clip of your muffler deleted ?
