This morning I drove my Z4 2.5 miles and stopped at Starbucks. Even before I turned off the engine, message 'Engine Malfunction. Reduced Speed. Contact Service' was displayed. 'Check Control' displayed 'OK'. I contacted Service and they insisted I drop off the car for checkup. They checked everything and no issues were found. They contacted BMW North America. BMW thinks it might be a faulty sensor. They advised to clear the errors and release the vehicle to me. They didn't replace the sensor. They said they will if it happens again.

I am wondering if this is because of the music I was playing. I bought 'The Dark Knight Rises' CD and was playing 'Rise' at full volume. Music is Epic. But CD mastering was bad with excessive gain levels. When I was playing this track at full volume, the car shook a little bit. A few seconds later the error message was displayed. Wondering if the volume caused the sensor to go off. Any thoughts ?
