Just bought a 120 I on a 54 plate, 64000 from a private sale

Customer Question

Just bought a 120 I on a 54 plate, 64000 from a private sale and the DSC light is on the bottom indicator panel and not the top indicator panel. In the manual it only shows a problem if both are lite up, I've checked forums and they say it will cost £2000 but some BMW garages replace part on a good will jester.

Help please as the car won't be worth anything

Cheers Andy
