    ABS/DSC module repair recommendations

    Did they do yours, how much did it cost you?
  2. Has anybody had their ABS module repaired successfully and have a recommendation on the firm. I have the DSC warning light on, read the codes - 'error 88 pre-charge pump' was listed, after looking at the internet for solutions 100% of what I read led to the module being the failure and not the pump. Current ones i've seen and heard of before..... http://www.ecutesting.com/catalogue/bmw_eculist.html?category=4047&model=462 http://www.bba-reman.com/gb/content.aspx?content=bmw_bosch_abs_pumps Thank you.

    Yes, you lose the OBC but nothing I ever used. The only thing I used it for was to display the temp and I can get that info up on the clocks. .

    E39 Audio Upgrade - Final

    Thought I would update my thread. During the last couple of weeks I have fitted an alpine iLX-700 head unit to my car, removed the bit10d for future sale and plugged HU straight into the amp. Further £100 on leads etc later........ I didn't realise how long ago I had updated my sound system, it still going strong, as is the car. Liking the alpine so far, great to have internet radio and hands free phone again, my only gripe would be I am stuck using the apple satnav app and not being able to use any other.

    My car is just my daily, brakes never get hot enough for that to be a problem.

    http://www.paints4u.com/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=5021 Monte Carlo blue - WB05 paint code. The 2k clear was painted with a spray gun/compressor. But I'm pretty sure paints4u sell clear in can as well.
