P302c engine code

Hello good morning how is everybody well I have a friend that purchased a 2008 535 I sedan and she had it for a week and the check engine light came on she took it to the dealership in which she purchased a car from and they did not have the proper scanner therefore I tried my scanner and Surely but surely I came up with a code of P302c. I would like to know if anybody knows what is code might mean I have been looking on the Internet and I have not been able to determine really what the code is only thing I have found is that the cylinder number two might be misfiring does anybody know if this information is correct I would gladly appreciate if someone could provide me some input thank you and happy holidaysClick image for larger version

I have a code list for Mini that lists this code:

P302C - High pressure fuel system, fuel pressure, pressure falls below minimum threshold

Mini is a BMW platform. The 535i has high pressure direct injection.
hi pressure fuel pumps have an extended warranty from BMW that I believe is good to 120K miles/10 years.

It could be a coil, spark plug, a file injector, or it needs a valve cleaning

I got my money on the coil

They are $30 on Amazon

BMW charges $500 to change to do 2 coils. Don't get ripped off

I guess the question to ask here is if the car is running rough and missing? If the code reader is reading out a misfire code then the car will be running bad. If it is low fuel pressure code the engine can be running smooth but will not have full power. The fuel pressure code is set when the fuel pressure is below the desired value of the DME.
The fuel pressure low condition is usually set under higher pressure desired that occurs with higher throttle application.
