comment Brake lights, but no tail lights
Check the wiring you may have moved during replacement, maybe there's bad contact or something.

comment How to properly change out spark plugs?
3.1 Insert new spark plug and catch the thread manually before using a socket wrench, otherwise you risk to overturn the thread.

comment Can chafing brake pads damage rotors?
Sounds like brake pads are not pulled off the rotors to me, need to check the mechanics before blindly replacing the rotors IMHO.

comment Honda Accord bubbling / gurgling sound when braking first few times
If that was trapped air, I would assume it went away after gurgling stops. Perhaps there's an air leak inside?

Risky in what way? Shops usually give you guarantee on their work.

comment Uneven rotation sounds when my car gets to 50-60 MPH
Another possible reason could be carwash. If rims were not properly washed the dirt/mud could have remained on the inner side and caused said disbalance.

comment Is every BMW service, always needed?
What seems to be the problem, you want to ask to check brake pads or you want to go to non-BMW shop to do only things you need and do it cheaper?

comment Is it harmful to drive at high rpms
Maybe you can add your engine green zone as stated in manual / marked on tachometer?

comment When cranking an engine between 15 second intervals is ok?
Usually you can (need or must depending on country) put a special sign on your car to let other drivers know you are a newbie. Knowing that newbies often have problems on slopes the sign will tell others to to leave more space in case you rollback a little and also that they should be more forgiving to mistakes they once did themselves time ago.

comment Keeping an old car alive?
+1. I have similar `97 car (Skoda) - so far maintaining costs are cheaper than buying and maintaining any new car by times. So I would like to know (maybe that can be a part of you question?) - how to detect the point when old car should be scraped in favor of buying new(er) one (in pure practical reasons!).
