Broken fuel gauge is very common on all bimmers.
My Z3 (M54) failed two years ago. I found the resistive network substrate
broken in several parts.
The replacement is easy but the carpet needs to be cut and a tool to be made
for dismounting the big nut (I've a drawing).
The complete fuel pump needs to be replaced (100 ? for the part, another
bunch of 100 ? banknotes for the job).
Some of these failures come from fuel tank deformation (1200 ? for the part
and big bill for the job, rear axle dismounting). Most of them hopefully
don't involve the tank.
It also happens that the DTE displays wrong data, especially if you overfill
the tank. It cures by itself.
Related to electrical parts but due to washing liquid corrosion: The rear
wiper motor presents leaks when the seal gets corroded by the liquid going
through the shaft. Either to be repaired if you have a lathe or to be
replaced, peanuts for the seal or around 130 ? plus the job for motor
No other electrical failure or related reported over 130000 km.

I know a bit about cooling from the "Old Z3" thread.
Could someone describe some of the electrical problems, particularly
those relating to BMW's from, say, 1996 to 2001?
