  1. Re-sealing headlights after sanding/polishing?

    Any pictures with that film installed? Did you sand and polish thru the original hard coating before you put on those films?
  2. Re-sealing headlights after sanding/polishing?

    If you want it to last it needs a proper clear coat. CLICK
  3. Windscreen seal + rubber buffer

    Those three rubber buffers are only used when installing a windshield.
  4. 4.0D Swap

    Sounds interesting but I personally don't see much point in this conversion. All V8 engines have different front suspension and steering box compared to I6 engines with rack and pinion steering. M67 engine is quite heavy compared to power gain it gives over M57 with slight moderation. M67 uses two engine ECU's (DDE), one working as a main module and the other as a slave. I don't know how these would communicate with rest of E39 though E38 and E39 are quite similar in many respects.
  5. INPA can't connect to all modules on the car

    Most likely that failing K-bus connector belongs to Webasto aux heater. There is no separate cruise control module. On very late E39's that automatic light aim is implemented in light module (LCM) and there is no separate LWR module.
  6. INPA can't connect to all modules on the car

    But you still don't know which wire you disconnected blindly from the K-bus connector. I would first put it back and start from there.
  7. 1st + 3rd gears make gear stick vibrate loudly

    Yes. They can be installed in two ways, the right or wrong. So I would make sure the one installed now was installed correctly. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e39-530d-lim/repair-manuals/26-propeller-shaft/26-11-single-multiple-part-propeller-shaft/ByNP5ys
  8. INPA can't connect to all modules on the car

    Still sounds like K-bus problem. Could it be that you have actually disconnected the whole K-bus from I-bus? Do you have High or Low OBC cluster? Check the bus topology on the link page 18. Does it match on the modules you can't connect. CLICK
  9. Staggered Wheel Fitments - What Size Spare?

    No. Wheel will fit just fine and tyre circumference is still the same.
  10. E39 530d manual, Revs randomly capping on motorway

    If you unplug the supply pressure sensor 4 bar is output as a substitute value. If pump is the culprit sensor won't make a difference. Pump location Pierburg 7.50051.60.0 = OEM pump
  11. when was the facelift model introduce

    Facelift 9/2000->. Either those lights are some after market model or there are original plug adapters used. www.bmwvin.com
  12. E39 530d manual, Revs randomly capping on motorway

    3,5 - 4 bar. While driving the symptoms usually come when the pressure drops below 3 bar, on manual version even earlier.
  13. E39 530d manual, Revs randomly capping on motorway

    Most likely cause failing inline fuel pump (under seat). Any fault codes? With diagnostics you could check the supply pressure.
  14. Unfortunately Gates is that same made in Italy crap.
