    That is the radio unit. The bm54 is at fault. Very common. The solder joins become dry over time. Try unplugging your battery and then unplugging the cables from the unit in the boot and leave it over night. This sometimes fixes the issue. if it comes back then sadly you will need to get it respired. This happened to mine. Check out carphonics. Excellent guy who can repair your unit for you.

    M54B30 running issues

    There are a few things that can cause those issues. Injectors coil packs A bad Cam shaft position sensor will cause rough running. Air intake boots might be perished. What do the spark plugs look like?

    Cement on paintwork

    Sooo a building site has dropped cement onto my car. It happen while I was away and the rain and sun have dried it to a hard shine! They contractors who own the site have agreed to pay to have it removed. So any tips on good detailers serving east London would be greatly appreciated. Not had to deal with anything like this before but I assume that it will not come off with out damaging the paint.

    Do I have a MAF problem?

    Just spray some brake cleaner through it and leave to dry.

    Do I have a MAF problem?

    Have you checked your ICV? These can become clogged and effect tick over. Worth a check. In my experience issues with a bad maf would produce a constant bad idle.

    Problems with BMW battery

    As d_a_n1979 said no coding needed for e39. ECP currently have 45% off batteries. https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/BMW_5+Series_3.0_2003/p/car-parts/car-electrics-and-car-lighting/electrical/car-battery/?444771107&1&2a222a6245d0e5c144f50ce27337468b16040e11&000020 I wouldn’t bother with BMW warrenty.
