  1. Brake Flexi Pipes

    I’ve just fitted a set of these to my E39 as my rear hoses looked like this:- i also had Liam make the additional mid pipes near the DSC unit that go to the rear brakes. He responded quickly and they arrived to Australia within a week. Quality is spot on and interestingly the hoses had HEL embossed on them rather than the WM in the pics although they had the WM on the extra loose sheath bit.
  2. My Norwegian E39 With Many pictures

    That’s the wiring for a 9/2000+ car. Here are all the wiring diagrams for the various years:- https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e39-523i-lim/wiring-functional-info/body/distance-warning/q-A81

    Power supply for the PDC IS FROM THE K72 relay (unloader relay). It should be a RT/GE wire.

    You can also just find an I bus wire and tap into it. And do the same for the power supply.

    Hi Bent, You’re correct, an E39 doesn’t have the fan connectors like an E46, rather soldered connectors. In a LHD The I-Bus connector should be in the loom here:-

    Hi Bent, Those wires go into the same wire colour fan connectors above the fuse box. The WS/GR/GE wire is the K Bus wire. The RT/GE wire is the power supply from the unloader relay. (And sorry for the tardy reply, but with Tapatalk not working, moving house and no WiFi, and time difference in Australia I’m not on the forum as much at the moment.) Good luck, Rosie.

    You need to insert the Blue/Yellow wire from the mirror (pin 1) into pin 39 of the black 54 pin connector on the LCM - that’s the activation signal for the Electrochromatic. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e39-523i-lim/YxY8Lf0

  10. Sunroofs. Does yours whistle a little bit?

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

  13. 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).
  14. Thrust arm bushes

    +1 for Lemförder. They're OE.
