The headlight low-beam, angel eye, and marker light bulbs are all out now on the passenger side of my '03 530i. First the side light bulb went, then the angel eyes, then the low-beam. My question...

45 and on my first BMW -- and certainly not the last. Honestly, I wouldn't have appreciated this car 11 or 12 years ago (before I started dating my husband). He's a car guy (raced, worked as a...

Alrighty, then! I've got some homework, apparently. You guys will be amused by this: my husband (who has worked as a mechanic) insists that I work on my own car. He helps me, but he insists that I...

Dutifully checked the dipstick this a.m. so we know exactly what our baseline is.

Maybe I'm panicking over nothing. The car is still new to me, and I'm still learning what's "normal".

I am the second owner. I did get the entire service history on the car prior to purchase, and it was only ever serviced by a BMW dealer. As it was still under the CPO, I had the oil change in June...

Agreed. My woman's intuition is telling me something isn't right. Or they're just being patronizing. You know the deal. "Oh she's a woman. What does she know about cars?"

By way of comparison, I paid $17,900 for my 2003 530i with 36,714 miles on it. Luxury and Winter packages, rear and side window sunshades. I bought my car this past March.
