    Single rear tail light turned on - how?

    that's it, just push it down or up (if you were activating the indicator, as opposed to the 3 blinks). As above, the purpose is to keep your car visible on an unlit road if it was parked up, or you had broken down.

    it'll leave the front and rear side lights on, so if you're parked/stopped on an unlit road the car is still noticeable.

    Does a front side light stay on too? Can only think it's the parking lights that you're accidentally activating.
  4. The front left wing looks like it has been replaced or re-painted at some point. It's a different shade to the rest of the car.

    Wrong sidelight/angel eye bulbs

    the ones you need are these . They fit & work perfectly. I've tried others which don;t work or fit correctly.

    Rear brake pads

    You only need to replace the sensor if it has grounded out. Otherwise you only need to reset the service counter in the iDrive.

    Goodyear Eagle or Michelin Primacy?

    Costco sell tyres (if you have a card). Websites i use are tyreleader & camskill.

    Suspension Settings...

    On Comfort the suspension is 'looser', so that would suggest there is more movement allowed within the parameters of the suspension, where as sport would restrict that movement. I would say that comfort would wear them out quicker due to the increased amount of movement the suspension would allow.

    Tailgate plastic trim removal

    i use Realoem to see where the fixings are and it always says what they are too. Mine is an LCI touring, so hopefully this is of some use to you.

    Oil additives, worth it or not?

    The engine was designed to run engine oil without additives, i think that says enough really.

    Dodgy Ebay advert?

    Doesn't show as trade on his Ebay? But no, it wouldn't need it if he has valid Trade plates

    Dodgy Ebay advert?

    Who knows, but it won't do any of the components any favours if that's the case. The down side to no tax is no real test drive though, so i'd give it a miss.
