    Hi guys im new to this, hope you can help, i have recently purchased 98 735i sport, and yesterday this waring light (!) appeared in the dash display on the right hand side, Could anyone try and explain what this could be. It was sat stationary for couple of weeks before i had it, if this helps. I hope someone can shed some light on this (no pun intended) as i have searched around and cant find a definitive answer. thanks again Jay

    That will be a brake warning, possibly low brake fluid.
    Your brake fluid reservoir should be under the pollen filter on the driver's side.
    You can take the lid off, and undo a spring clip you will see holding it down on a painted bolt at the front edge.
    Release the airduct going into the car, and the pollen filter housing will lift up and the brake fluid reservoir will be underneath.

    Well, ABS would put on the ABS light, the handbrake would give a "PARKING BRAKE ON" message on the dash.

    The other option is if the line are broken around the edges, which is for pad wear.
