Not sure if this may have to do with your loss of power but a red engine oil light on saying it's overheated has to do with you water pump. Don't drive the car any further, I had to replace mine around 50k miles which is where all BMW's water pumps seem to give out. Part is gonna cost around $500 and install all depends on the shop. I had a mechanic friend do it for $200, but I believe LTBMW does this too! Hit em' up!

Now that the engine light came on it has stored an error. If you bring it back to the dealer they will be able to pull an error.

Then take the loaner they give you go to Best Buy and buy a new keyboard lol

After hard driving in my car it went into limp mode like yours, I stopped and restarted it and went back to racing and bam! Car shut off completely, seems to be a big problem as far as safe mode goes, get it checked out asap before it shuts off like mine did

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
