    I recently bought an '02 525i. I got a "check brake lights" message on my dash. The driver side brake light does not work. I replaced the bulb and the socket, made no difference. Any suggestions before I head to the mechanic?

    Hello, I've posted here before about my 92' 525i and now I can post with confidence and say I know what's wrong with my car. I personally replaced the thermostat, oil filter housing gasket, radiator, and the upper and lower radiator tubes. Now I have a blown head gasket. I found this out as I...

    Hey there, I was involved in an accident in August, and am still dealing with the body repairs. Seemingly, nobody knows what they are doing. It would be extremely helpful if you would post pictures of your front bumper for comparison. Any close ups of the headlights would be appreciated as...
