Engine Malfunction; reduced power. Third day

So i got error on screen. did not notice any power loss but took it in. They said it was a vacuum hose. On final test drive technicaian got the light again. Now we are on 3rd day and i miss my 135. Not a big fan of the 328.

Happened to me also. Warning showed one time only. Dealer replaced both vanos solenoid valves. Definitely noticed reduced power.

This sux.
Keep us posted to the issue please.
I got 335's on all 2 times I took my car in, I know the 328 is not as fast but it is very comfortable!

I just recently had that light and it ended up being a bad waste gate in one of my turbos. Diagnosis - both turbos needed to be replaced.

Good luck!

Mine has gone on two times in the past two months. Yesterday it went off on I-95 and I lost power. Im not messing around anymore, its being towed to dealership tomorrow. By the way, I was on my way home from braman because of other service bs. It never ends

Got it back a week ago and it was a bad exhaust solenoid. Throwing the VANOS off too! This issue has been going on for a while, its just because fixed now due to the light going off. it's felt slow for a couple months and now its back to normal now, sux. I wish I had a great SA! I guess there heard to come by.
