ok a couple of days before I posted saying that my check engine soon light came on. You guys told me could be the gas cap and it was. And I tighten it and it went off.

Last night it came on again, I checked the gas but it was on tight . Anyways this afternoon I went to turn the car on it was still on, than 1 hour after that it went off. Than 2 hours later it comes on again. WTF:dunno: This crap is aggravating me!!! All I see when I look at the dash is that damn light on.:banghead: :banghead:

Mine's on heroin.


Have your dealer check it out, they'll be able to read any faults.

take it to your dealer and get them to run diagnostics on it. They will be able to tell you what faults have been occuring and can take measures in repairing it.

Me too...I just don't trust BMW long term reliability. Remember the Nikasil block disaster in the early- mid 90 V8s?

It looks cool fun to drive, but BMW needs to take a few lessons from Lexus and Acura on reliablity

Dude, take it to the dealer. I had the same thing happen straight from the dealership with a brand new 325i. It was an electrical fault and it jacked things up majorly. If you odn't want your car dragged in I would take it in ASAP.

well bmw's also have 3 years warranty which includes pretty much everything, except wheel alignments and things regarding rims and wheels. besides that they do pretty much everything for free. I know cause I already went to replace so many damn things, shoot they even know me when I call who I am already. I dunno if that is good or bad :dunno:
