Problem fixed - they actually could not get the error to repeat itself but went ahead and replaced it anyway.

They figured it was a air pressure issue as I was up in the mountains and accelerated too hard (this was just after break in was completed). Anyway, who knows...

I've had mine for less than a week. No issues yet, but I'll keep an eye on it.

OK, one issue... A whine coming from the engine that almost sounds like a supercharger. Sounds cool, but not sure it is supposed to be there. Need to take it in at 1200 miles for service so I'll have them check it out.

I noticed a sound somewhat like what you're describing when my car was new. Paid no heed to it and it seems to have gone away. I wouldn't be worried if I were you.

Thx. It seems to be getting louder, but it's probably just that I am paying more attention to it. I'll try to ignore it and see if it goes away. Maybe just belts breaking in? Who knows.

on a serious note the oil pump noise excuse of thinner oil may have some weight to it, from an electricians point of view single phase motors have a tendancy to self destruct when not under load, so if the oil is to thin its not exerting enough pressure on the motor therefore its buring out??? do you think im not saying this is the cause im just speculating. this would cause voltage problems within the motor as the motor gets hotter, which might explain why BMW cant always replicate the problem the oil pump isnt being streched enough to overheat on the forecourt. maybe they need to take it out for a longish run.???? any ideas?

Good advice! Unfortunately, the stereo is loud enough to drown out the beautiful engine noise too. Looks like I need to find some aftermarket exhaust.
