    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.
    Thanks, Zoe.

    Zoe i tend to use a really good bmw specialist in sale/altrincham.
    I am always running my car in there, they always throw it on a ramp when ever i turn up or plug it in to check codes for free.
    Really good couple of lads that work there

    Ring Autologic and ask for your nearest bmw Autologic user

    It's not a case of reading codes anyone can do that

    You are going to need some one that knows how to read the live data from your engine ecu
    Carry out end of line tests
    And knows how to do some input out put and resistance tests
    As well as having the right equipment to code and program your ecu

    If it did come down to let's say a dde ecu for your car I have these in stock ready to post out
