Strange failure s85

Hi all,

While I was accelerating my m6 s85 stall around 7000rpm. The first error was flat tyre system failure. I thought a tyre was blown and stopped immediately. The car was running rough on idle and saw oil light. Turned off the ignition immediately. I took the car to the repair shop. Checked error codes. All cyl missfire plus vanos codes including low vanos pressure. I checked vanos pressure manually it is ok(80bars at idle). Then I checked compression values. All same. Now I am going to checking injectors. Could the problem be the DME? Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks

How is your battery? The cars are very sensitive to low power so it could be anything from battery, alternator, voltage regulator etc. but I would try to check that. Good luck.
