I just purchased a 540i 2001 from a private party...great car. However the company that I hired to tint the windows left the doors open while they worked on the tint which in turn caused the battery to go dead....and I guess they had to "jump-start" it. After I was driving away, I noticed that my on-board computer, fuel gauge and tachometer are not working. Could this be related to the battery being low....or might it be something else. Thank you to whom ever can give me a little peace of mind.

Hi, the green indicator warning lights on my dahboard have started to function at random, also the high beam warning. The brake lights also seem to come on at random. Any ideas?

My wood trim on cassete cover is cracked so I'm looking to buy a used one, not mechanical parts, just wood trim.
Dealer asking 95 bucks andI think that's too much.
