  1. PLEASE HELP - Central Locking Madness

    Rear doors are controlled by the GM3, front are controlled by the door module. https://www.bmwgm5.com/GM3_Connections.htm
  2. Interior colour change

    I've been using a dye kit from furniture clinic, I gave them the colour code and they had it in their system. It's not so bad, although I am using compressed air cans, it can be tedious swapping cans around. I'd recommend buying an airbrush compressor, at least then it's a somewhat continuous pressure and it won't freeze up like the cans
  3. Interior colour change

    They were black, contours are grey and extended door cards were champagne. Hopefully I'll have it done completely in cinnamon by the end of the summer, I'm off to uni so I'll have to leave it where it is.
  4. Interior colour change

    Finished the back seat, in the process of doing the extended door cards and contours will be left till the summer.
  5. Seat and mirror memory coded, not working

    Haha thank you, now I feel like an idiot. Never mind
  6. Seat and mirror memory coded, not working

    I thought they just needed coding once you've installed memory seats.
  7. Hello I've coded the seat and mirror memory using NCS expert, checked the GM on INPA and it shows that the drivers seat memory is coded, mirror memory is also coded. The mirror memory is not saved and i cant get the mirror to tilt down in reverse. Any ideas? Thank you

  9. Interior colour change

    I'm doing the leather inserts and door pull as in the following link. The reason I'm asking is I wanted to do it properly, take them both off, dye them and reattach. I might try doing it as is with the rest of the door card masked off and see how that turns out. I'm going for a cinnamon interior with extended door cards and E38 contours http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e39-m5-e52-z8-discussion/207214-m5-companion-10-2004-e39-touring-530i-m-package-individual-200-pictures.html#/topics/207214
  10. Interior colour change

    Hello I'm planning on changing the colour of my interior including the door cards. I'm planning on removing the leather inserts along with the door pulls to change the colour. I came across this guide for an E46, where the guy grinds the welds smooth with the door card and pulls them apart, then reattaches with screws and washers. Does anyone have any experience with this? http://www.diymybmw.com/e46/dyeing-leather-door-inserts-for-two-tone-interior/
  11. Wings , thoughts pls

    When I had to change mine due to a dent that couldn't be restored using PDR, I got a genuine wing, in the right colour for £25. I think better to get a genuine one, the fitment will be right also.

    Check the centre brake light. Usually just needs repositioning.
  13. 4.0D Swap

    Yeah it's a perfect solution for LHD countries as they were never available in the UK. And the other thing is finding a decent one or just settle for a petrol V8. Love the shape of the E38
  14. 4.0D Swap

    There's plenty of things you can do to your 525d and you'd still be better off financially. Things I've researched for mine: Hybrid turbo Bigger injectors Remaps An M57 3.0d swap would be much easier, correct me if I'm wrong, you're looking at max 250 hp with modifications
  15. 4.0D Swap

    Hi, there are a few on YouTube if you type in 540d, it can be done but the costs will be too much. Right now there is a complete m67 4.0d for €3000 on eBay. As said before it can be done, maybe not worth it, although a twin turbo 540d would be nice.
