RE: bas/esp idiot light ???
This is a problem from the late 90's onwards in many models. If you search for BAS, ESP or ABS in this forum then there are several ways to look at the problem: either it's an untraceable nightmare that causes main dealers to take your car apart over weeks of trying - or it's a simple problem with naff connections on the steering wheel sensor, and a bit of work with WD40, sandpaper and a soldering iron IN THE RIGHT PLACE to improve electrical connections makes it all go away.
I'm getting this at the moment on my new (to me) E55, and I'm thinking about whether to ask for the warranty to kick in (and go through the 'dumb as a rock main dealer' scenario) or put it to my specialist guy, get it properly fixed, and pay for it myself...
