    Hi Guys, Weird thing happening. All's fine then the "check brake lights" came on the dash. Changed both bulbs and the message still comes up. Any ideas please Thanks Lee

    Mine did exactly the same thing, I did all the cleaning of bulb holders etc. Crunch came when I needed the car early in the morning only to find a flat battery. Turns out brake light pressure switch was to blame, it was putting the brake lights on as I was driving along, then it had put the lights on overnight. New switch, problem solved (thanks to my local independent BMW garage).
    Hope this helps.

    +1 -I had this too, if the conections are poor the resistance can build up to melting the bulb holder-saw this on my old 740. I was forever changing the buldb on that one side...
