Hi can anyone help and tell me what's going on ..on my M5 E60 as soon I start it it says power reduced and the power drops from 8rpm to 5rpm ??

You have to give more info than this.

Year, mileage, major maintenance done, how long have you owned it, pull the codes, what are they?

That is a start.

More then likely it's probably a throttle actuator issue but def going to need codes

Your engine is broken. Definitely.

Eh. Codes please.

Likely a bad case of the "throttles".

It could be anything engine fault relates to idle actuators throttle actuators etc use a decent diagnostics and read the dme faults this will help you pinpoint it use something like inpa ista etc

Yeah, as others are saying, we'll need the problem codes from the engine. There's any number of things that could put the car in that state, some serious and some super-simple.

If you don't already have a Bluetooth code reader, head to Amazon and buy one. Then use that and an app on your phone (if you have Android, use Torque) to read the codes.

Then tell us what the codes are that your car reports.
