First Of All, What Is With The Initial Caps? It Is Very Tough To Read.

OK, for most things regarding the air bags, while you may be able to fix the problem, you won't be able to clear the error, so it is off to the dealer you must go!

Thanks..ok ok no more caps.. work requires all written reports in caps so my home computor is always on caps.. This 2005 545i becoming one of the most problematic vehicles I have ever owned and Bmw service is third rate. I wish I would of purchased a used Yugo and saved my money..Off to Valley BMW I go with a credit card for the rental car since a loaner is never available and another 2 months for a part..I wish I would have bought a Lexus..

If you are that unhappy with the local dealer, you may want to consider driving north or west ~1.5 hours. Consider it a mini-vacation! It's only going to hit 80 here in Palo Alto today.

My local dealer (with free loaners - when available - or rentals - when loaners are not available) has so far been extremely empathetic and has gone out of his way to spend time diagnosing problems (on both of my cars, neither of which is a 545, however).

I may do that..Thanks..I paid cash for the car and I guess this dealer feels their not going to get financing dollars from me so I can kiss their ass since they got all they could up front..I wrote BMWUSA yesterday regarding the third rate service and being charged $15.00 on my credit card for part of a rental car I used during service..Yes I filled up the tank with gas when I returned the rental car..Go figure!!!!!!!!

Sorry for your troubles...my car has been pretty clean thus far (knock, knock). :) Well, at least anything that goes wrong with the car is fully covered...too bad you can't get a rental for free, too.
