    i have just purchesed a BMW 523i. it drives well but the airbag light is activated all times. the car was towed away brutally and they had pulled the car from stearing rack. i had the car repaired but the light still shows. diagnostics shows nothing. any advice.

    which diagnostics are you using?
    if there is a fault light then there is a code to be read
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    your best bet would be to find a decent independant bm specialist.they will have the correct equipment,and the wherewithal to know how to read your fault codes.
    what part of london are you in?we may be able to recommend one such indy
