Are the shocks and struts of the 98 740IL compatible with 00 528i also what parts if any are usable. Taking them from the 528 and putting them in the 740. Thanks

Tried jumper cables and checked fuses also.



aftter a long ride (highway 50-70km) with my car looses power (does not turn off)and requires between 5 to 15 min rest to continue

When it goes to red it only stays there for a little bit, then goes back to halfway. Does anybody know what would cause this?

I noticed car was shaky. Got worse & worse while the car was stopped. Eventually didn't want to accelerate when i stepped on the gas, even floored it & it ran very slow then gained speed. Any help? Opinions?

Hesitates ,no power in low

I bought 2 radios and the black box in trunk and the same thing I even pulled a working radio out a 540 I and steal no power

my parking cable doesn't seem to be connected to anything. It seems to be completely extended to its point, which has caused my car to be completely stuck in emergency park. I called a bmw dealership and they could only suggest that I get towed to a repair shop, and that the repair could be a couple hundred dollars plus towe fee... I believe this is to extreme for something I believe should be simple. Does anyone have a suggestion?
