where is the battery at

Is 3500.00 too much for ac compressor repair? How do I know if I really need this- blowing hot air. Dealer says I need this.

The dealer is telling me the lines need replacing for another 4K. Why?!

I want to know which bulb is the low beam and which is the high beam because I turn my switch just once and it turns on the the two inside lights which are not bright at all then I turn it once more and the outside light comes on once which I believe is the low beam and when I turn on my high beam the 2 inside ones that were not bright at all turn on really bright this time. So are the low beams and high beams separate or together is a main question and if they are together do they go on the outside part of my headlights lamps ? This is all so confusing hope someone can help please

Car fill like it's not getting enough of something

I was driving to work two months ago and the moror just started bouncing around almost dying... finally got to work almost in limp mode at the end of the day I brought it to a local shop and they couldn't find any codes wrong in the motor they wanted to replace the motor after finding no compression in the first and third chambers.. so I had it towed from that shop because they wanted to replace the motor I was thinking there's too few miles on that motor to be replaced so I had it brought to BMW of Riverside and they want nine hundred bucks just to lower the oil pan... and also found out there was a recall on an inline oil line they won't replace it cuz it's out of warranty and they want past records which I don't have of my oil changes should I have a brought somewhere else.... I hear they don't make 328i Motors anymore for some reason

all systems (running, brake lights and turn signals), are working. Sometimes the display shuts off on its own. Other times it stays on for hours. Any ideas?

There are no visible leaks under pressure.

Trunk won't open electronically, gas hatch won't open electronically, top won't go down, IF windows go up, they stutter open once key is inserted and won't go back up.
Interior and trunk lights blink.I charged battery for approximately 90 minutes and everything worked perfectly for one day, battery went dead after two days without driving, so replaced battery and all above problems continue.

There was antifreeze that leaked out

Making a noise when turn right

As I'm driving when I start to give it gas a thumping noise occurs from the rear of my vehicle sounds as if its coming from the trunk.

When I give it gas it feels like the tranny is skipping

it happens when i am stopped and right when i start it up and at random tomes while driving

Where's the engine coolant fan RELAY on a 2002 bmw 530i

I just bought a 2003 bmw 325i every time I put gas it does not allow the pump to literally pump gas it clicks everytime I push the trigger on the nozzle what is the cause of this?
