"there's no huge thing to worry about, pretty much any modern german car will do that, it goes into limp mode to protect itself."

All computer controlled automobiles have the same function. German or otherwise.

As others have said, the computer has detected something that could possibly damage the engine and therefore has put the engine into a safe mode. The problem could be triggered by a fault signal from a from a detector, of which the engine has many, or the need of a software update. Therefore only the error code will tell you specifically what triggered the "limp home" mode.
