BMW 645 Engine check Light

Hi All, I need a little help. I moved all the toys out to Niagara-on-the-Lake. I expected to drive the 2004 BMW 645, 1.5 hours to the Airport in the morning and go out of town for three days. 

Last night (Saturday) the Engine Check light comes on. The iDrive message display claims it's related to Emissions or Emissions control.

I did fill in up yesterday with Ultra 94 (got a discount card). Usually I go with 91.

Any advice on whether I should drive it to the airport and back. The wifey only drives the automatic and if I take that instead she'll get stuck with three days of no car and $120.00 a day to work in taxi charges.


No, time to find a local mechanic, but that would be helpful too if anyone has a trusted independent in the St. Davids/Niagara Falls, St. Catherines area.
