I have a BMW 650i and want to know can I change the spark plugs
we are miles down the road. There have been a few times when the alarm went off in the closed garage for no reason at all. We have removed the map lights and turned off the dome light as well.
I would like to use a brighter lamp for the high beams. I need extra light at night on the dark rural roads I travel on. The problem is the lamps are in series with a resister to run them at a lower voltage. I have not measured the voltage. My guess it is 6 volts. Is there a work arround for this or a bulb that would work ? I installed HID lamps. They work for the high beam only. The DRL feature does not work because of the way they are wired as DRL. I found a fix on the net that disables the DRL . The problem it also disables the auto lock. There was not any info on how to do it as well. Looking at the wireing diagram in Alldata they put a switch on the wire from the drive selector to choose between park and drive. I would like to retain the DRL feature as well as lights that would work either way. My question is there a way to do this? Can I use a powerful lamp like a halogen or maybe a LED?
The lights just came on today.
So my engine light has been on for months and they just diagnosed it as an electrical issue, that it was not a big deal. Today my engine light started flashing and my car started shaking. Every time I would accelerate it would shake more. Some people have told me it could be a possible misfire? Any thoughts?

I was hit on both rear bumpers but noone thinks that is the problem.
The stripping is located on the liftgate door itself not on the body. Can a replacment be bought and what is the name of part. Leaking when it rains. Causing the storage area to get wet.
It would not start, it just kept getting worse, like someone throw a sledge hammer into the engine. There is a black sooty grime that has built up over my back windshield over the past few months too. I tried to start it several times and it won`t turn over. Is this valve seats that dropped and caused serious damage to the interior of the engine? It hasn`t overheated, the oil has been changed every 3,000 miles and it was only a quart low. Coolant is fine, it had a new radiator installed a few months ago.
Whenever i drive really fast or put the sports mode on while driving fast, the steering wheel gets realllyyyyyyy hard. i own a nissan tilda/latio from Singapore. It is a 2007 model. I live in St.Lucia. I love this car because it is really fun at high speeds but the steering wheel gets too hard and especially when i have to corner, i have to use both hands to turn the wheel in a little corner. It is really frustrating.
My usual mechanic tried to way over charge me last time for struts so i went to pepboys and they charge $90 to diagnose but they gave me a $800.00 estimate for intake manifold gasket! so now do i go somewhere else with their dianoses which might be wrong any way or pay for another diagnoses. the code is 0174 and i'm really frustrated:(
when i turn the ignition everything comes on but the engine makes a clicking noise almost like its trying to catch but it cant. i though maybe it was just flooded so i let it sit for a few hours and that didnt help at all. could it have something to do with the water that leaked in to the passenger side and trunk or is my car just completely screwed up? :(
