Question I got a few question help!!


Okay I'm wonder what's a good coilover setup that still keeps the same ride as if I'm driving on clouds but that's not like 1500 bucks!


and every now and then my car says check engine light comes on and says check break light and see owners manual but my breaks work just fine.



One more hahaha
I'll be driving and theres this beep that happens every blue moon it sounds like its coming somewhere form the dash i have no idea what or why it happens?

1. So you want top of the line suspension without top of the line prices? Unless you look for used kits, best o' luck to ya.


2. Google can answer that (hint search for break light circuit failure) far easier than I.


3. What temperature is it where you are?

Does the beep happen at the top of the hour? If so it is the memo on your clock that is on

More specifically, 15 seconds before each new hour.

Why the laugh? That is the time that the OEM BMW hour chime goes off.

That someone took the time to time when exactly the beep goes off. Good job on the specifics/details!
