  1. There's a slot for it exactly the same as the E39 seats, towards the rear of the seat, on the outer rail. There will be a metal bracket with a hole in the middle for the pin to secure the cable to the seat. Its a mechanical adjuster, no electrics at all.

    Topaz E39 525d Sport

    I was meant to do a write up after finishing the seats but never got around to it. I'm back at uni now, so it's on hold till next year now. I will be driving it when I'm back home in the holidays. So front and rear seats were finished, the seat backs and E38 armrest were done in black. The only things left were the rear armrest and headrests, as I ran out of the clear. Hopefully, I'll get them done in December. I did clean the car inside and out but forgot to take any pictures so all I have are the ones during the process.

    N54 twin turbo conversion project

    Yes it was, it wasn't available in the UK. They did have it in the US and Europe, and with an X drive option I believe.

    front wing cabin microfilter drains blocked

    I remember when I removed my arch liner to replace the wing, I cleaned the debri from one of the drain tubes and it poured water out for quite a while. Made a mess on the garage floor.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    In the past couple of weeks I decided on buying some led BA9s/T4w bulbs, didn't really work out, the first set didn't project the light into a point, so it never illuminated the angel eyes. The second had a metal projector housing just above the light cap which stopped it from entering into the housing fully. I think the only way is these aftermarket LEDs in the housing. I do have some with an amber led and will probably just solder a white Cree led in there instead.

    E39 passenger side wing mirror cover.

    I'll send you a picture of it tomorrow when I'm back home. And then send it off on Saturday if you still want it.

    I'm not really sure. I thought the SE mirrors were more rounded. But after looking on Google, I believe they are the same. These are the ones I have: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F142900883981

    I've got a pair of sport mirrors in titan silver, don't mind splitting the covers.

    Driver's seat is done, all that's left is the seat backs, rear headrests and the rear armrest.

    ABS/DSC module HELP

    I've sent one to ECU testing before for a friend's 335i, it all went smoothly, the problem was sorted. They'll do a diagnostic before hand and if there's nothing wrong, they'll send it back. I can't remember how much it cost, I think around 150

    Passenger seat in and fully functional, had a long period of panic over whether the elements had somehow been disconnected but continuity was all good, and then I found one of the wires in the car plug was not fully inserted. Anyway, driver's seat this coming week.

    Finished the passenger seat excluding the headrest, I'll be fitting it tomorrow to make sure everything's functioning. Forgot to take a final picture with the side trims on. And as you can see there is some creasing on the right side of the seat due to the zip ties, I'm hoping with normal wear, they'll straighten out. I did try changing the zip ties and loosening them but it didn't make too much of a difference.

    All four door cards mounted and also wired an amber LED into the handle. Tomorrow I'll be starting with the contours, redye and installing the heating elements.

    E39 3 pin terminal connector

    This is what was on my E39 contours from the factory and what was on the heated seat elements that I bought from Germany.
