X5 Tail Lights

I am not sure if it is just me but I regularly get a warning on my dash to check my tail or brake lights. It seems that all I have to do is unscrew them and then put them back in and the problem is solved. This is only happening on my passenger side rear lights. I do have the factory sub woofer mounted back there - is it rattling them loose? Anyone else having this issue? Know how to fix it? THX

My 2004 X5 had the same problem. It took the dealer only 2 minutes to replace it. Bring it to the dealer and let them do the work if it is still the warranty.

On board computer display hard to read

The LED display on the OBC of my week-old X5 is hard to read in normal daylight driving conditions. The alphanumerics are dim - hard to see. Can the display be adjusted other than the dash rheostat control?

Thanks for any help.
