  1. Finding VIN from reg no.

    Everything's in clear text when registering, so i would advise a completely separate email, username and password. About as safe as a chocolate tea pot.
  2. E39 M5 front heated memory seats

    Do you have the loom and panel for the heated seats? I'm thinking whether i can retrofit these in my 540iT? Cheers Deepan
  3. Non-AC Heater Panel WITH PCB

    Thanks Dennis. Am i correct in thinking you have a similar setup in your car? with the manual dials as opposed to climate control? I'm not going crazy am i? might need to visit a scrap yard, that might have an idea what they have available. any other breakers aside from Quarry? anyone have any experience with FAB or anyone else? Cheers Deepan
  4. Non-AC Heater Panel WITH PCB

    Already did send him a message on ebay, but no reply as yet. this was only sunday/monday so can give it a day or so before i chase it. His advert does say that it's the panel only so might be a faulty PCB, which may also be why it it rarely seen anymore. Cheers
  5. Non-AC Heater Panel WITH PCB

    If you see the attached photograph, that panel is what i'm looking for, with the PCB included. Cheers
  6. Non-AC Heater Panel WITH PCB

    @Calypso-E34Some of the earlier Ex-Police models have it. I've only ever seen the manual controls in one other car. The part itself isn't for mine, but a friends 523i manual. Don't have the VIN but i would assume that it's base/poverty spec run around. I've searched and got alerts on ebay.com searching globally but it's rarer than rocking horse shit. Some parts sites want £800 new But i'm wondering if you can retrofit a manual dial kit with the AC button and just not connect it, if the panel and connectors are the same as then it would function as needed and then you have a spare button for extra goodies instead. Thanks anyway!

    I'd love to know what my '97 540iA Touring (120k) is worth if those prices are what they actually sold for. GLWS.

  12. iPhone iOS 11 / 11.0.1 - Anyone having issues?

    The problem with Android, for me, is that the apps are 'un-packed' as needed (ie: only when you open/use them' and then they're discarded 'till next time, like a virtual box. This increases the computing power, memory and battery needed which is why they often have much much better specs than an iPhone, but only perform fractionally better in rare cases. For Apple, they may not be as revolutionary as they once were, but once you're in the ecosystem, it's hard to leave. Licenses, and DRM make that near impossible without having to spend again for what you already 'own'. The iPhone iOS was designed with simple people in mind. It's not difficult to do anything on there, you can pretty much use it without a second grace a lot of the time. Their rendering of colours and imagery is great, their music is now of a much better standard (FLAC is a lossless audio format) and with the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack they can loose the reliance on the tinny sound that came from the interface and improve the digital sound quality by using the MFi certification and the lightning port. Android handsets often also come with excess bloatware that is hard coded into the OS and the manufacturer's " layer" that the user cannot change. Apple do this also, however the amount of apps is far far less, and now you can delete at least some of these that aren't necessary for core functionality. Having android handsets accept expandable memory is a huge advantage, but also a security risk. There are far more phishing and trojan apps in the Google play store than the App store hands down, and being able to accept apps from unsigned sources is hands down the most detrimental thing to their platform. Great for testing (I use it all the time) but then apps don't need the basic accreditation before use and could be potentially very very dangerous not only to that one user but to the network and many others. It's horses for courses, and whatever vendor meets the users needs and requirements. I use an iPhone 7+ as my personal handset, a Blackberry KeyOne as one work handset (gave back the latest Krypton on Friday) and also a OnePlus5 as a third (test) device. Just my thoughts and experience. Deepan
