    Hi, I am a fairly new BMW owner (well my son drives it). The oil light (yellow) keeps coming on. I drove it Sunday and the light was on. I stopped to ask if they could assist me by adding some oil. He put 1.5 quart in, he showed me how to view the oil level, which showed just under the full...

    Last week white smoke was coming out of the exhaust pipe, I was out of town and the car had been struggling to start but finally ignited when I accelerated. Now the car won't start but there is power. Your help will be greatly appreciated. I don't want to spend a fortune through BMW service.
