Any good BMW mechanics out there?

Recently my gas meter, cruise control, and tempature meter stopped work.

Also when i slightly turn my wheel to the left, my car starts to shake.

I was just wondering if any one had any sugestions on what could be the problem?

On the gages, have you checked the fuse box? As to the shake, bad (uneven) tire wear or a wheel out of balance are well worth checking.

The shaking could very well be blown struts. How many miles are on them?
