CEL BMW 318ci

HIyya i am new to all of this but briefly i have just purchased the above car, i have just replaced the spark plugs purchased from BMW bosch and put them in the car, it ran like a pig and the yellow CEL came on and remains on, after some thinking i took the new plugs out and put the old ones back in and the engine ran lovely, however i still have the yellow light illuminated, any ideas how to put it out . I will be taking the plugs back to BMW and getting NGK which were the ones i took out but any advise of how the light came on or how to get it off would be appreciated cheers delboy

You just need to reset the dash computer, this will erase the fault codes...

BMW lock nuts stuck

Having just purchased this car i intended to change the rear brake discs, i was not able to undo any of the wheel nuts so off i went to the trye and exaust garage to get them to undo them. Whilst attempting to undo one of the splined lock nuts they stripped the teeth in it and couldnt undo it, they therefore attempted to place a socket over it which when turned in the undo position it grips the nut and undoes it, that didnt work either due to the recess of the wheel around the nut. They then tried to hammer in a larger BMW wheel nut key into the old locking nut but that didnt work either. so they gave up. Help or advise in now required as i am not able to remove this wheel at all especially if i get a flat tyre or so i can replace rear discs on the car. please any info other than smashing the 400 rim off will be great

it looks like that is the verdict, best get my drill out , looks like it could really be a long job and a few drill bits later, best do it before the car goes in for a servicing, dont really want to pay BMW 130 an hour or two to drill out a bolt, thank you for your update

I agree with Jimmy, remove the stud yourself and bill the garage for your time and parts !!!
