I hate BMW's

Hi,

Now i've got your attention lol, new to the site and a proud owner of a 523i se 2000 which i'm slowly modding using AC SCHNITZER goodies.

The bit i do hate about BMW's is the electrics so i'll be asking for a lot of help, got some major issues with this car and mainly electrical.

Thanks LOL, bet you all came in here ready for a fight.

I remember Lucas electrics on some of the old brit bikes i've had, bloody nightmare.

I did have one issue with the lights that i fixed, the high beam switch became reversed and eventually highbeam stayed on all the time, took the light control modual off and cleaned it with switch cleaner, worked fine after that, maybe it's that playing up again?
