Hello DWD,welcome to the forum.
The light is the engine management light and illuminates if the
registers a fault somewhere.
Best get it diagnosed by a garage with the suitable equipment as it could be one of a thousand things causing it.
Does the car seem sluggish at all?.If its misfiring,then it's probably not a good idea to drive it too far as the unburnt fuel could damage the catalytic converter in the exhaust.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
Currently in Lagdti's garage:
2004 Saab 9-5 HOT Aero and a 2001 Audi A3 1.8 Turbo
