    Hi, I'm new to the forum and would be obliged if anyone could give me any idea as to what the above fault codes refer to. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    BMW want £120 just for their own diagnostics and a friend sourced the codes for me...

    They then told me best case scenario could be £700 for repair!

    Codes for your NOx sensor but you don't say what model car you have so can't really go further then that. Model even missing from your Car Details.

    I think 29CE will be misfire Cyl 2, although I can't be 100% certain.

    116i N45 engine are notorious for iffy coilpacks and injectors...
