    +1 Check Control Module - been there done that! (Could be an idea to charge up the battery also)

  9. 1994 BMW E34 540I - GF22093

    Isn’t CHF used because of the shared use with the brake system / booster or am I thinking of the 540 touring?
  10. Programming new key fob

    For my new remote key that I bought from BMW a few years back, I just followed the instructions in the original handbook that came with the car! I have a feeling the ignition had to be in and the button on the key held in
  11. Would a 518i touring in alpine Weiss III with blue interior interest you? Very tidy body but one front door brake is broken, one wing is the wrong alpine Weiss and there’s a dent in one of the rear doors . Tailgate and glass opens on the button. front jacking points needed small infill sections only - no sunroof or sill covers located in Ipswich

  15. E34 slam panel replacement

    Its a bolt in part and the old one will come out after breaking the mastic / sealant on the upper corners where it connects to the wings. Got one in red and silver btw are you after the gold 525 with lsd on gumtree / eBay?
