These are the codes from my peake:
4e: Coolant Temp Sensor
6b: Control unit self-test, pre check of drive-by-wire system
E6: Drive-by-wire, throttle position failure
D1: Misfire during warm-up, cyl 5
D2: Misfire during warm-up, cyl 6
D5: Misfire during warm-up, mult cyl
I saw these issues with other M5's, but I wasn't sure if some codes would contribute to others. Any help would be great.
4e: Self explanatory
6b and E6: Possible throttle sensor failure
The others are pretty common and will probably go away when you reset it and see what comes back.
