I just bought the car from a friend and did not have it checked out. Now the airbag light on the dash board stays on. He said it was nothing major, but I don't believe it.

    Nothing major? Goodness, just that if you are in an accident, your air bags won't deploy and will put you at serious risk of injury or worse!

    You need a diagnosis performed to determine what has failed. I'm thinking your friend should participate...just an opinion.

    Just like Dave said, you need proper diagnostic. You should definitely get this car checked out throughly, this is the biggest money pit ever built by BMW since the V12s, I work on these. Many internal engine, computer and network problems, the smallest one is expensive.
