Question about BMW 525
Test the battery with a voltmeter. Should read about 12.2 to 12.6 volts for good starting. If less then 12.2, have the battery charged and see if it comes up to 12.6. If it comes up to 12.6 and won't start, battery capacity my be diminished and may need to be replaced. Also, check tightness of cables at battery connectors. Loose is not good for starting an engine but still may operate the interior lighting..
Also if it's a stock BMW battery, I get about 5 yrs of service from them.

Are you using the original key that came with the car? The chip in that key may have gone bad. Try using the spare key that should have come with the purchase of the car. You may also be having battery issues. If all else fails....call the people who really know how to rape you...DUM Dum dummmmm....the dealer

Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.

The BMW 525I doesn't have a dip stick. The oil level is checked using the "i" menu. Select service status and from there you should choose "check engine oil level".

It uses a "cartridge filter" the cap to the filter is on the top side of the engine, normally towards the front. NOTE- The procedure is to remove the filter, drain the oil, replace drain plug and filter, refill with oil. Some models have a canister at the bottom towards the front. These are a little trickier as the material used for the canister are very brittle.
