It sounds like you inadvertently set the speed warning (you can set it in the OBD to warn you if you go over a certain speed). If the car has nav, look under the "settings", second page, and turn it off or set it to something like 85. If you don't have nav, I'm not sure where the setting is but look for "speed warning" in the manual. Hope that helps.

It means that the engine power has been reduced - either automatically when the brain of the car has detected a mechanical problem in the engine or you have engaged the rain mode.
Usually this happens when you use a low quality fuel. But i've stumbled on rare cases when the Vanos sensor valve was the cause. The only way to precisely tell which is expensive and implies a visit to a dealer.

SOURCE: bmw e60 . Error: the word "limit" in

Is dont remember bad, this is the Speed Limit Display. That is a revolutionary new driver assistance system. The Speed Limit Display keeps the driver informed of the maximum permissible speed at all times. A camera fitted near the interior mirror permanently monitors the signs by the road as well as variable speed limit signs on overhead display screens.

If there is a sign indicating a speed limit in the wet, limitations at certain times of the day or restrictions applying only to towing vehicles, the intelligent driver assistance system, part of BMW ConnectedDrive, collects data from the rain sensors, clock and tow bar before displaying the restriction in the cockpit or, if requested, on the Head-Up Display.

Hope this helps; remember to rating this answer and leave a testimonila comment. Thank you for using Fixya.

BMW whine noises 70mph

Hello Robert Anderson,

I always ask the color when my friends are describing their car... and immediately ask the interior color too...
It helps me imagine their following sumptuous description...
Twin-turbos, 8 speed automatic, Walnut grain...
fuzzy DICE... Plastic idols affixed to the dash (etc.)...
all helps in the visualizations

but... for your car I imagine a noise.

Okay... a 70 mph whine usually means the rear end differential gears have gotten out of alignment.

It could mean a few other things... but that is the biggie!

Hope this helps!

My BMW 328i shakes or rocks really bad when slowing down or riding idle at 20 mph, also when getting up to 60 mph it shakes as well but stops when over the 60 mph. what could all this be?

It sounds like you either:

1. wheels/tires that are not balanced properly (most likely)
2. bad wheel bearings (very dangerous)
3. Have a cylinder misfire
4. Have warped brake rotors

A tire/wheel shop should be able to narrow down the problem

Bmw x5 limit-mph light come

You need to reset the TPS to turn off the tire pressure light.

Limit MPH is just a setting. You can set it for 70mph for example and if you exceed that it will chime to remind you to slow down. If the system was set low, say 20mph, then it will chime evertime you drive the car. It has no effect on the car, its just annoying. Turn it of using the computer at the radio. there is a button there titled "Limit" press that and then adjust the limit to a higher speed. setting limit to "--" will turn it off.
