Assistance/Advice Requested

To All,
My beloved E93 335 is sick. After a long drive to Melbourne from Newcastle, it now refuses to play by steadfastly displaying an orange engine warning light that demands I take it to a dealer for inspection. As part of this performance, it has decided to enforce reduced engine power and emit sounds that resemble a '64 VW misfiring. Oh dear. Anyone got any suggestions as to my first plan of attack, and/or anyone Melb based that can point me to someone down here that can be trusted to look at the problem without me needing to rob a bank first.

Any suggestions or feedback most welcome.

Without more information it's impossible to diagnose what the problem is. We'd need to know age (kms) of the car, what caused it to limp (acceleration/normal driving), and a picture of the warning light at the very least. Has it had the HPFP or waterpump replaced?

You're not gonna believe this but my car did the same thing last week. Andrew diagnosed it yesterday. Coil pack had to be replaced as well as spark plugs. All done for under $500.

Depends on if it was just 1 coil pack or all 6. 1 coil pack is about $50 and 6 spark plugs ~$100.

Just a quick follow-up to thank those that were able to respond to my issue and point me in the right direction. Turned out to be the dreaded failed HPFP. Oh well, at least I got 30K out of mine before it failed.

Big big "thank you" to Andrew and his team at SouthernBM Moorabbin, who pretty much dropped everything to help me out at zero notice. Awesome service and business Andrew, thanks.
