I guess your "limp mode" problem is worse than most since it remains in limp mode and won't go back to normal after restarting. It sounds like what IS2000 mentioned...may be a bad Vanos solenoid or a fuel pump problem. Either way, take it in for service asap; they'll probably get it fixed within a few days.
