could it possibly have been the extra power from the tuning box that put it in limp mode.is there any way of accessing the fault codes without a scanner.the car has 72000 miles has full history and been well looked after.it is due service though .thanks for the advice

Only way to read the code is with access to CANBus. OBDII scanners run at $16 (USD). The Bravarian one that reads same codes exactly as BMW does is way more, but the basic models will atleast guide you in the right direction.

And, yes there is a small possibility that boost, oil pressure, and many other factors adjusted with the DTUK could have sent a code through the engine. You could also be joining the carbon build up club like me

Unfortunately, the answer is No. You just have to buy one; think of it as just another tool in your toolbox (assuming you have one.) Some auto parts stores in the States will read your codes for free - have you checked over there?
