Odd problem today - low power

I had an odd problem today on my 2013 335 xdrive. I pulled onto an onramp and hit the gas and had almost no power and acceleration into second gear. I shifted to third and same thing. I pushed the pedal to the floor and almost no acceleration. I got off the highway and at the next light shut of the car and turned and back on and all way well. Anyone seen this?

Sounds like limp mode.

Did you run cheap Gas by accident?
Did a hose clamp around your intake come loose?

I've been using 93 at name brand pumps

It sure felt like limp mode but it didn't throw any codes and they car said it was ok in the information in the NAV

I will check for loose clamps.

Did you trigger the traction control by chance?

Not too long ago I lost traction and the TC intervened, cutting the power. There must've been some sort of glitch because the power cut remained until I turned the car off and then re-started it.

I didn't experience any error codes or warning lights.
