Have your mechanic look it over, sounds like it is limp mode and there is a problem, Is the service engine soon light on?

Did you put regular gas in the car?

I believe poor fuel quality could trigger such a warning but I am not a BMW expert.

This is a typical malfunction if your battery is low, Charge the battery or have it replaced. the message will likely go away and all will be well in the world. -BMW fanatic and knowledge expert

It's not the battery but a sensor need to be replaced when you have this msg shows on your screen "Drive moderately. Maximum drivetrain output not available."
