    E39 Audio Upgrade - Final

    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.

    Caliper Painting

    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.

    speed sensitive volume??

    Unfortunately you can only minimise how sensitive it is, not switch it off completely. Annoying isn't it. Turn the radio off Turn the radio on Press and hold the 'SEL' key. Use the < and > buttons to scroll through various settings. When you get to GAL, use the number keys to set the level. When done, turn the radio off and on again.

    Leather/vinly Scuffmaster Kits

    Good Afternoon, Are you still supplying the kits through the forum? I was looking sort out part of my door cards.... The colour is the E39 Aegean edition 'silver light grey'. Lastly could the dye be sprayed through a 0.8 mini spray gun/compressor? Thank you Carl.

    Ps4. I think my sons disappointed!

    I've just upgraded to a ps4, been addicted to destiny since getting it. Being a cod fan waiting for next Monday to play that....but was a little pissed off to find I HAD to join ps+ to play certain games online! they certainly kept that quiet.
