Newbie with hopes

Took delivery of a beautiful Vesuvio Grey Quadrifoglio. Coming from a BMW X4M40i. After 5hrs of ownership got an error message about servicing electronic throttle control, and service engine. Hoping this is just a small gremlin. I REALLY want to love this car!

From my post on another thread:
I had the exact problem after 3000 miles. I didnt have a chance to bring my MY19 SQ to the dealer right away. Its drivable but only in N mode and its ok to drive at normal highway speed (55 mph), just take it easy. It started up w/o issue after the second day, took to dealer anyway to have battery changed. They replaced the original battery with Mopar battery AGM type...so far no problem again.

Spend quality times with it, you will love how much fun driving it, even just going to pickup groceries!
