My emission light came on when the mechanic did not close the Oil Cap completely and let air into the crankcase. Also, check for vacuum leaks/loose hoses. Maybe dip stick not completely shut?

Dipstick removal cause stalls???

When my '05 645ci is idling and I pull out the oil dipstick, the engine stalls. Is that normal? Doesn't seem to happen on my other cars.

The logo on my 645ci looks like it got dented hard by a careless elbow:(

Is there a way to replace just the bmw logo without replacing the whole steering wheel?

Thanks.
