    Hello to all. I am a (I think) proud new owner of an 07 650i convertible with 66K miles. Before I bought the car I had a pre-purchase inspection performed at the local BMW dealer. They advised me that the car had no codes, and pulled the service history which appeared to be comprehensive and...

    PLEASE HELP! The trans fail safe light came on long time ago. I went to have it checked out at a spot I 'used' to trust in Atlanta.... they told me it was my ABS system (huh?). I've driven the car around now for weeks and the light comes and goes on. What I've noticed is that when on other...

    Hey, new to the forum. Have been reading online for help but figured it wouldn't hurt to see if anyone has any other advice on this. I recently sold my 94 325i of 8 yrs and bought an '06 x3 with 76k mi on it. I've had it for a month and it's been great (carfax shows it's had regular maintenance...

    What is your state law on buyer or seller responsibility for SES/CEL & smog tests? Edit: Change the question, as per E36_phantom in post #2 below, to more about the seller's specific legal responsibility. Edit: Further generalized the question, as per Edjacks' comments in post #3 to cover both...

    I have a 2004 X3 2.5 (122,XXX mi) and the other day my service engine soon came on for a few hours and then went off. I thought it might be tweaking, then my car started taking longer than normal to start. The engine will turn 4-5 seconds before actually starting and later in the day it will...

    So mainly due to Sandy I have not driven my X3 for a week - Long Gas Lines. Then we had 5 inches of snow and my wife needed it. Shortly after starting the "Service Engine Soon" came on and has remained on. I dropped into Pep boys and they read and reset the code P0138. Strangely immediately...

    First and foremost, I would like to say that I really like the 745Li I have. It looks great and runs awesome! but it sure gives me a headache when something weird happens to it. I've had my share of sorrows and they do weight heavier than the good counterparts. If I had known id be so...
