As far as I know, in e36's this is a common problem regarding a short (I had it on my last bmw). You mean that the brake light thing comes up, but your brake lights are fine, correct? Yah, I got it fixed for free.
Hell, heckle it. If you really want the car, play that card. Go halfway through the process of buying it, but make sure they fix that short before you buy the car - is this a certified pre-owned? The dealer should take car of this problem before selling it, if it is.
Yes, you have it correct. And that is good advice about using it to heckle on the price of the car. I will definitely do that.
Unfortunately, there is no warranty period left on this particular car. If I like this car after tonite's test drive, I'm going to try to convice the seller to take it to a BMW certified mechanic and get it inspected at my expense. Hopefully, I will have a better idea of all the potential issues on the car at that time.
Thanx again for the help.
