: Need help with X5 problems

I've received conflicting or insufficient answers to these problems from my dealer.

* When ignition key is set to accessories (Ignition On position) the "engine" and "oil" lights remain on until the car is started. The engine light goes off last after the engine is started (the dealer said this is because of the large volume of computer checks done on the engine).

* At a stop, with foot on the brake, the engine runs rough (my Honda runs much quieter and vibration free) and the driver can fell vibrations from the peddle and some vibrations from the steering wheel. The dealer said there is little that can be done because the engine is set by computer. They can't even set the idle up a little. Is this your experience?

Any thoughts?

Never noticed whether the engine and oil lights remain lit when the key is in accessories position so I don't know if this is a problem. However my 3.0 idles nice and smooth at a stop with my foot on the brake.
