My Ride: 325ci steel gray
just got a new car 2008 535i and dont know if i want to keep it

So I bought the car on Friday. Its a 2008 535i black saphire metallic color. It has 73000 miles on it. I traded in my 2002 325ci which had 107000 miles on it. I got the 535 for $28000 and they gave me $8000 for my car. The 535i is fully loaded with every option and i love the car. The problem is the push start started having issues a couple days ago it wouldnt start right up it would take a few seconds then start. Second, the car will jerk forward if im at a complete stop and then let go of the brake it will do this somtimes not always.

Tonight i was driving the car and the engine light came on and said engine malfunction reduced power. i did get an extended 3 year warranty on the car and im supposed to bring it in tomorrow to have it all checked out and fixed but now im worried and dont know if i should give it back or even if i can give it back or get something else. These cars have so much crap on them im scared it will continue to have problems. Any advice?
