REPLACED IGNITION SWITCH AND ALSO WILL INTERMITITNTLY NOT START
I'm considering buying a 535i 3.0L I6 6 speed automatic. All of the service records were kept, car is beautiful, very clean -especially for a 11 yr old car. They're asking $6,900. This car has every option possible, well almost. Anyways. Is this a good deal? What should I look for in the service history, any specific repairs? Is 100k a lot of miles, or considered high mileage for an 06' BMW? Anything I should look for when checking it out? I'm also a 31 yr old woman, so I don't want to get robbed. My husband has to work when I go check it out, but my father in law will be with me. He's good with cars, but he's never checked out BMW's. He's always has Infiniti's. Thank you for reading, hopefully you can help me out!
Had 3 radiator hoses fixed three months ago and my engine still steams whenever its raining out.
Sometimes its really bad like my car is on fire but the mechanic says they checked everything and it's fine.

Wont start after driven for a while, and it stalls ever day, when you take foot off the gas or sitting still. Have had starter replaced, battery replaced and mass fuel sensor as well. It idols high and gas runs out very quick.
Cannot pass emissions. Code continues to activate...
I bought this car because I thought it would be fun to drive. Nothing could be further from the truth. Everything is a pain in the ass including simply putting air in the tires.
Is there a way to simply turn the tire pressure sensors off? I think I'm capable of checking my tire pressure.
Replaced part for the code P0011...camshaft item.
the car it's going on is the 2003 530I, VIN# WBADT634X3CK31854. Thanks
When my 530i is parked outside overnight or when it is colder than 50 degrees outside it cranks over but wont start. When it warms up or sun comes out it starts up fine. The car runs fine otherwise, no codes come up etc. This has happened at least 10 different times and no one can figure it out!Could it be a dirty idle control valve? Please help! Thank you in advance!
I have 2004 530i only 120,000 miles. I just replaced the spark plugs about couple months.
Now the check engine light in on and I get the code P0306 Cylinder #6 Misfire, So I swapped the plug and the coil with Cylinder #1 and I still get the same code " Misfire Cylinder #6"
what else I should do?
car was bought new then given to me,nothing has been altered. Early morning car started then died after a few seconds (engine sounded normal),I tried to start again but this time sounded like when getting a compression test(sound like plugs removed). One BMW dealer tells me engine is NON-interference and the other dealer tells me it's interference. Please tell me for sure as I can afford repairs if non-interference(possibly do repair myself).IF DUAL VANOS operation failed w/no valve damage(non-interference),would engine quit start&sound like escaping compression,as vanos controls camshaft position????. Thank you very much and pray valves weren't damaged and I don't have to remove head to get completely machined. VIN: wbadt6343icf05573

When backing and turning while car is sitting still
My car runs perfect after a starter replaced but my Idrive system won't turn on. I thought it was the battery and took it out but that wasn't the problem.
It looks like the drain hose failed from my sun roof and the water drained into the passenger's floorboard, which has the high amperage fusebox totally corroded. the connections on the underside just fell apart and the connections on the top side are frozen with rust. This seems like it should be repaired for free under some kind of recall. I cant find the replacement parts. Please email advise of any options.

This seems like a design flaw that should be repaired for free under some kind of recall or something. I cant even find the replacement parts. Please advise me of any options.
Please help adapter if you can . Thanks!
