Engine malfunction. Reduced power

So i was on the highway heading to work, and my engine just stopped responding and i got this message. Ran the diagnostic and recieved these codes. One of my buddies is saying its just the spark plugs but i believe its the fuel injectors. Anyone else experienced this issue? Thanks in advance

Well the plugs are a cheap and easy first step at least.

The weekly "engine malfunction" and 'reduced power' question. Do a site search. There are probably 25 - 30 threads already discussing this issue.

When I experienced this problem on my other N18 engine, it was the diverter valve...confirmed by dealer diagnosis scan...they wanted $500+ to replace...did it myself for the $85.00 cost of the part...

Unfortunately these things trip into limp-mode all too often, and there are any number of different things that will cause it to happen. The only thing to do is get the codes read by someone who can read the BMW specific codes and go from there.

Sorry I had trouble seeing the codes in th pic, but it looks like you have several misfire codes as well as fuel-cutoff activation. Cylinder #4 specifically in a couple. The fuel cut can be tripped by many things including too much boost psi, you also have some exhaust gas codes there too. You can try the plugs, like i said before, it is cheap. But I’m not sure that’s it. Clear them and see what comes back

Cannot see the codes... Post them in actual text, not a picture.
