  2. Sunroofs. Does yours whistle a little bit?

    If the sunroof panel is not adjusted correctly, that can cause wind noises too.

  4. How can I find out my factory spec

    This site is a BMW VIN decoder:- https://www.bmwvin.com Just put in the last 7 digits of your vin and it will give you all the options on your car.
  5. DIY: Making a Hybrid 82C Thermostat

    I realise this is an old thread, however I fitted a Gates 33578 82°C thermostat that I purchased from Amazon.com today. It does have a different seal arrangement to the OE Behr unit but seals perfectly without any additional sealant (pressure tested for 1 hour @ 220kpa). I now have a car that reaches operating temperature (as opposed to 75°C).
  6. Thrust arm bushes

    +1 for Lemförder. They're OE.
  7. WDS wiring diagrams

    It's out there on the interweb. Just Googalise "BMW WDS CD" Also, everything in WDS is also available in DIS if you have that working.
  8. Dipped beam stays always ON

  10. E39 CD Player - with AUX support

    I can't help you but have you tried looking for one out of an E53 X5 as they use the same unit and were produced into 2006.
  11. Breakout box

    Yes, it gets standard stations and displays station names, artists and songs. They come up regularly on EBay.com I can't answer the question about the PXA staying on the FM input because I never fitted mine, but as you say it's doubtful that will work. I think@richardp needs to chime in here. PM me for the B/O box.
  12. Breakout box

    If Richard doesn't have one, the one I bought off him last year and he posted to Sydney is still in its packet as my E39 Touring was written off and my replacement E39 has factory DSP. Unless something has changed that I'm unaware of, Australia uses DAB+ which the TUA-T100DAB won't receive and there isn't any other DAB tuner that will interface with an Intravee. I'm using a TUA-T550HD and yes, it won't receive HD Radio but what it does allow is to see Intravee data display whilst using radio and RDS which only the very late BM53's display. It also has better sound clarity than a BM53.
  13. M5 Oil Leak Help

    That's the Vanos oil pressure precharge pump. It was retrofitted by Dealers to cars that had a complaint of Vanos rattle when starting. It primes and pressures up the Vanos before the engine is started. It was only fitted for a few months before BMW then started fitting a pressure accumulator with an electric pressure valve. You won't find much info because the service bulletin was superseded by this one:- https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e39-m5-lim/repair-manuals/11-engine/2SkhrdG
  14. M57 2.5 unknown connector

    It surprised me that you didn't recognise it as you are the Grand Master of everything M57! [emoji3]
  15. M57 2.5 unknown connector

    It looks like the A/C compressor wiring connector. The plug is on the top.
