    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Saved myself a quid, fitted a replacement Bosch DSC control unit. Fit replacement unit, NCS Expert to code IKE, DISV57 to read codes and recalibrate steering angle sensor. 30min job when you know what your doing, 2 day job when you don’t!

    Which winter tyres to get?

    My head wants Continental Winter Contact or Dunlop Winter Sport, but my wallet wants the Petlas. As as you say Dan, the reviews seem very good for the price, and I don’t want to rule out budget-mid range rubber. I had Fullrun Snowtrack budgets on my 1 series last year. They did the job to a reasonable standard out here in Zumerzet. I will I’ll close out this thread and use the winter tyre general discussion thread. thanks all

    Hi All Looking to get some recommendations on winter rubber for my 530d touring. I’ve got a nice spare set of turbines for the job. I believe it’s 225, over 215 all round? Cheers :-)

    Nice update What winters will you go for? I’m thinking of getting some michelin alpin for my turbines, just like your old set.

    I used some extra long cable ties, to prise the badge off. +1 for a stealer one, much better than the silly eBay ones.

    Front and rear. When the system is on the long beep noise comes from the rear, I remember reading somewhere you can troubleshoot if it’s front or rear by the long beep noise.
  9. Can anyone shed any light on the above error code. I’ve replaced all the sensors bar the rear middle 2, had the system working for about 2 months before it broke again. Replaced the rear middle 2 and it still doesn’t work. I can’t hear any clicking noises from any of the sensors, which makes me think I need a new PDC control unit.

    Replaced the sport trim for Technical Graphite today, what a huge improvement! Just to have to change the blasting radio cover piece.

    Nothing to brag about.Fitted new Bosch wipers & centre caps. But more importantly big thanks to @stu08 for the excellent Technical Graphite trim

    Traction Control (DSC) MOT fail !

    I’ve got the same issue, get it properly checked out and diagnosed. Mine turned out to be a faulty DSC control unit, ABS pump was fine.
