Doesn't mean anything... Could be something small and even non-BMW related (gas,...)

Just restart your car! Why would you take your modded car to a BMW dealer?

Why would you tow your car to the dealer especially with downpipes lol. I have gotten the same lights as you I just turn off the car wait like a minute turn it back on and everything is back to normal.

What dealership do you go to for service with your mods? I go to vista in pompano but it is always nice to have other options.

Was the car undriveable? Unless that SES light is flashing, you can limp it to a dealer.

With a DP the SES light is normal, but the half engine sign is not.

You need to find a friend in your area with a code reader. Read the code and clear it.

I use DashCommand, it read and clears codes. I have helped many friends with thrown codes in my area.

This was my first mod, this way I knew what was exposed at the dealer in the ECU.

Yeah you should definitely take those downpipes off and go back to stock if you even held onto the stock pipes) before you take it or you're fucked at any dealer.
Sorry to say, but this is one of the main reasons I refuse to get DPs.

about the fuel pump...
