#1611 of 1614 "Red" headlamp warning on 2002 BMW 330ci
Aug 09, 2011 (11:44 pm)
I have a 2002 BMW 330ci, with 64,700 miles on it, in excellent condition. After it sits in the hot sun for many hours, when I start it, the "red" driver-side headlamp warning light is on(but the headlights works fine). I can get the "red" warning light to go off by switching the dial to turn the lights off/on back and forth a few times. I think there might be an "electrical short" in the lightswitch, but my mechanic says that is not possible, and everything is okay, what do you think?
#1612 of 1614 2013 GTI vs 2013 GLI

Hey guys, I'm trying to decide between a 2013 GTI or a 2013 GLI. They both seem to have good qualities, and I was just wondering if there are any real differences between the two besides body style? Any advice or suggestions are welcome!

Hey Turboman007, they are both really great cars. I'm sure you will be happy with whichever one you choose. I would personally recommend the GTI because it is more sporty, if that's what you're looking for... I feel like it has the edge when it comes to handling and taking corners fast. But the GLI is a great compromise for anyone who may not like the hatchback style of the GTI. Check out viewmywheels.com They have a lot of great videos on both models. Hope this helps, good luck with your choice!!!

I bought a GTI last year, loved it but beware any models with timing chains. the chains can stretch with normal wear and it is a known problem. Users report having the timing chain fail when less than 50000 miles are on the clock. Buyer beware the cost of replacing this is extremely expensive and in my experience VW will not show goodwill.
