I added an engine Restore product to the engine. Then I noticed problems after the start.

When at Idle speed the engine bucks and struggles to stay alive? My service engine light is now on and very sluggish on acceleration. I am contemplating dropping the fresh oil/restore and doing the oil change again to see if that helps.
Any recommendations?

The 335 has history with the high pressure fuel pump failing, have you spoken to your BMW service provider?

Well the problem is that as soon as I added that engine restore product the vechicle started having all of those symptoms.
