    M5 mirror rubber gasket part number

    Did you get further with this, just popped my mirrors off and both seals are quite hard and I'd definitely like to replace them. I ordered the foam gaskets assuming that was the part but as you say they're not the right bit.

    E39 540i Sport - Delivery at Last!

    Congratulations, I guess we’re all biased on here but an immaculate E39 is still a terrific looking car

    BMW E39 530i facelift breaking.

    Hi, what condition are the xenons in?

    540i, ZF 5HP24 auto gearbox oil

    I think there are one or two auto boxes, mine is the ZF5HP24 and ZF oil is apparently Esso fully synthetic so I went with that and a ZF filter

    19" tyres and pressures

    My B10 has those size tyres and Alpina says 39 front/42 rear which is what I run mine at. The ride is surprisingly good!

    Thinking about buying early E39 540i

    The V8 runs at about 108 degrees, all the usual cooling issues and more!

    Widescreen Brightness

    Here's a photo of my new screen, it was definitely for an E53 as when first installed you could see next to nothing on the screen. I ended up trying all 10 screws by adjusting each one fully in and out to see what differences they made and most made minimal difference. The third Screw from the bottom (on the group of 4) appears to be a contrast button and took the screen from white to black and made the biggest individual difference but you really need to try them all

    Widescreen Brightness

    I've just found this in a PDF about the Brightness control for the on board monitor: The light check module (LCM) and the light switch centre (LSZ) receive desired brightness information from the manual dimmer. The LCM/LSZ then processes the signal and puts the light information from the manual dimmer into operation in two ways: - As a signal on terminal 58g - As a message on the body/instrument bus The light on/off signal is deduced from the body/instrument bus data. The signal on terminal 58g is a PWM (pulse width modulated) signal. The voltage of the signal on terminal 58g is offset within the radio by the voltage from terminal 30. The message sent to the body/instrument bus conveys only the angle of rotation of the dimmer. I swapped my LCM III for an LCM IV a year or so ago and did code it to the car but wonder if there's something I missed, anyone else having this problem swapped their LCM?

    I clicked the software restart button and it gave a warning so I didn’t continue. Tried to clear the codes and one won’t go even though they don’t seem to be present.
