Well change your airfilterchange plugs and wires and air your tire up to like if they are a max 35 psi tire have 32-35 psi in them but if its a max 44psi tire keep at least 38-40 psi in them and some car tires are even as high as 51 psi keep at least 46-48 psi in these tires it will tell you on the side of the tire don't go on what the door panel sticker says for air.

Boot light on my dashboard stays on even though the boot is closed and locked, on my bmw 316. It is only the boot light as all other doors are closed and the light only come on when they are open!


check for a bad switch on the boot, theres a switch on the side when you open the boot check it may be bad, try unpluging it and see if light goes out. hope this helps.

2000 v reg bmw 316 drivers door lock wont open with a key


problem here can arise through the car always being locked / unlocked with remote, the actual barrel in the lock can sieze up, worst scenario is to replace the lock barrel, your local bmw dealer should be able to order you one which will fit your key (if it is original one ) you may need to show your v5 and take photograhpic id proof with you!
