At last, I'm not alone. Both of my Lag II's have done this from time to time, and the current one has done it from new and is still doing it. Lousy plumbing behind the bumper appears to be the culprit, and the washer bottle just syphons empty through the leak.
2. The climate control panel isnt lit!!
A very common problem on the Lag II. See here
In a nutshell, it's fixable if you're prepared to open up the unit and get a soldering iron out. In your case, I'd bung it back at the garage and expect them to replace or repair the panel.

Did the garage even look at this car before they sold it to you?.

If your having all these problems now,then I dread to think what else the car is hiding.In my honest opinion I'd take it back and ask for your money back.There are plenty of other Lag 2's out there to choose from......

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

The car has now done 88'000 miles. I got such a good deal on it, they offered me a very good price for my old car and everything.

I think im going to have to take it back and get what I can back out of them.

Thanks for the advice.
