X1 engine malfunction light - reduced power

same here on my 2013 E84, i believe the production date is 9/12/12. i bought this M sport full optioned 200+ miles demo w/deep discount ($43k MSRP, $38k out da door) on 11/17/12. i have experienced this reduced power engine light twice, both disappeared within 10mins.

dealership found DMC FC 2CAC code (whtever it means) da 1st time, electric wastegate, sluggish; DMC FC 2C58, charging pressure control, deactivation, pressure build up blocked.

da 2nd time, dealership emailed to BMW due to no clue. now they decide to put in a brand new engine from germany. will update my post (on da codes) after i got my car back in 2-3wks.

i do worry quite a bit thking if this is 1st year model syndrome (in US only, Europe & Asia have been selling x1 for the last 3 yrs) or if i bought a lemon (if da same situation happens 1 more time, mine will be considered lemon, then i guess i will have a new car.) but they gave me a new X5 loaner (for paying da payment for a X1) to drive until they finish putting in da new engine (at least 2 more wks now waiting for the engine to arrive from germany) also i will start from 0 mile (already had 2800 miles for a month of ownership.) i thk it's all good for the time being.
