Hi guys i'm Zoe and i recently bought my first BMW.
2004 E87 120i sport petrol hatchback.
A family friend got it for me from an auction. I was really pleased with it, looks like a good and genuine used car. Drives really well and i was chuffed. Then after a week the engine management light came on and it went into limp mode. I took it to my local small garage and they told me that the faults are;
2A67 – valvetronic internal fault
2A6B – valvetronic power restriction
The local garage gave me the nightmare scenario and have worried me senseless - i.e. i wont be able to afford to fix it.
Now, i have done a bit of reading on here since and i'm hopeful its not as bad as first thought (though still pretty bad). So i'm going to get stuck into the forum as much as i can and try and get some numbers of specialist who can sort this out for me but in the meantime if anyone has any advice i'd really appreciate it.
