Drivetrain Malfunction

Under certain circumstances... all day of driving fast, pushing the car... on the way home accidentally redline and DTMAL pops up, or going up to a high elevation in like 6th gear around 5k rpm it will go into DTMAL, no check engine light.... BMW said it was a compression code, anyone else?? They said possible turbo going bad, leak in the hoses, coils, spark plugs????

Could be anything. I'd clear the codes, run the car and get it to malfunction again. Immediate check the codes before turning off the engine.

I don't have experience with a "compression code" but it doesn't sound like a standard misfire causing the DTM. We would need a lot more information in order to help you. If you can't diagnose and repair yourself, you're better off getting it to act up again and take it to a repair shop for diagnosis.

Good luck
