Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series
Driving home and the battery light came on then i smelt a burning rubber smell from my car small amount of smoke coming from near the alternator also i looked at the battery area in the boot and there is alot of water underneath it

Sounds like your water pump is out or siezed momentarily. This would cause your alternator to not charge your battery (hence battery light) and also would explain the water. The smoke would have been caused by the friction from the belt. Does the car still run?
