Next morning my car would not start, checked the battery, spark pluys where sparking, oil, petrol, fuel getting in, pipes and cheacked the top of engine was moving. Anyone have ideas what going because don't anymore cheers.

lol i dont remember any bimmers, it was like 3-4 years ago
i lived with a huge group of people from all over europe near the university.. it was supposed to be "summerschool".. but they rented out a club for us daily and we had some crazy times. all i remember is the mall which is 10 mins away from the university, which is pretty nice... and lots of drunk british guys who love to fight
