    Test and repair of E39 M5 DME ECU

    Can anyone advise whether they have found an ECU test & repair provider in the UK that has successfully tested and repaired DME ECUs for e39 m5. Specifically Siemens ECU, part no. 5wk9317. My local BMW independent specialist has conducted a fault code check on the car as part of a recent service, which identified 10 faults that couldn't be cleared. Engine emission warning light permanently on. They recommended that the DME ECU is sent to a test & repair specialist. I have contacted a couple of places in the UK and am not getting a positive response that they have experience with this ECU and specific variant, and have a track record of successful repair / resolution. The local BMW independent specialist has told me that the engine emission warning light being on will now be an MoT failure irrespective of whether emissions test is OK. Is this true - sounds like BS to me. Any advise appreciated.
  3. hello does anybody here know much about e39 and dsp ? atm my hifi dont work and i've tested with a working bm54 and navigationmodule. the bm54 has power and when im connecting the car with INPA i can only reach the widescreen monitor and videomodule. previous owner says that the hifi have worked perfect several times this year so there has to be a small error, but i cant find out how and why..... i have uploaded a video so you guys can se the problem, the car is a 2002 m5 with individual soundsystem im desperate for help... 43166372_507674116371274_8544895572069318656_n.mp4

    e39 M5 rear seat

    Recently purchased a Le Mans blue e39 m5 interior but it is missing the rear seat. Just the bit where your back rests against Thanks

    Carbon Black ///M5

    Hi all, After years of procrastinating, I decided it was time to get my dream car (as a youth) The e39 was always a special car to me, the timeless and classic BMW looks and the "wolf in sheep's clothing" character. I had to itch this scratch and tick this off my bucket list! With prices slowly creeping up, the search had to begin! I decided to start looking for an e39 last year. I had a specific choice of specification: Black Facelift Black leather Titanium interior trim As standard as possible In October, I found one which seemed to tick my boxes in Wales and after confirming a price and arranging a deal, the seller decided he was keeping the car and did not end up selling the car to me. I was heartbroken. Many M5s have been on the market since but non caught my eye up until a few weeks ago. I set my eyes on a 2002 M5 which looked like it needed some TLC but ticked my boxes. Black, Facelift and with the interior I wanted. After seeing the car, it was clear it needed some loving as it has been parked up for some time and neglected however it was now or never and I wanted a car which needed (some) loving. After a test drive, the deal was done and I was the owner of a M5! Heres the Original Spec: Tyre Pressure Control Gradual Tint Windscreen Electric Steel Sunroof First Aid Kit and Triangle Smoker Package Individual Audio System Through Load System Park Distance Control Rain Sensor and Auto Light Activation On-Board Monitor with TV Cordless GSM Telephone BMW 6 Disc CD Changer Australia version Ski Bag Front Sliding Arm Rest CD Preparation She has some (subtle) mods - a tubi exhaust, window tints (they will be coming off ASAP!) and the previous owner ripped out most of the OEM sound system! My plan is to restore her to her former glory! I have a list of things I want to do! I have a few other cars in my Garage including a Stage 2 Golf R and Audi S5 (3.0 Supercharged)
  6. Here are my two E39's (kinda). Finally got some decent pictures taken and it would be nice to share with others on here some images and ownership details given the amount of pleasure I have had over the last few months looking at the threads of fellow members. The B10 was my first V8 purchase after hankering after an M5 since I was a nipper. Unfortunately I didn't have sufficient funds at the time to go solo so I had to go halves with my old man. Problem is he wanted an auto which put the stoppers on the M5 dream, although a B10 is no bad substitute! I found this example on PH with 121k miles which checked out well and had been well known on the Alpina Register pretty much all its life. It had been undersealed from new and had a rebuilt gearbox and numerous other new bits recently replaced. Since then its had a fortune spent on it to make sure its as tight as a drum including a total front suspension rebuild, all new cooling system, full brake system replacement, all arches, front sills, boot seam repainted and waxoiled along with the whole front end to get rid of stone chips along with loads of other bits. As a result she looks and drives fantastically well, as you would expect. Here are a few pics from the other day after a journey to and from York (hence she is a touch dirty). If the car looks familiar to regular visitors to PH its because the previous owner featured it on PH Carpool a few years back. Here is the link if anyone is interested. http://www.pistonheads.com/regulars/ph-carpool/carpool-alpina-b10-e39/25645 You will note that I removed the stripes! A tad controversial perhaps but I thought they dated the car and weren't factory Alpina decals. Late last year I sold my share to my old man (although I still look after it and get to drive it regularly...Bonus!) purely because my hankering after an E39 M5 never went away, in fact sampling the B10 just made me want one even more. Given prices were noticeably on the rise I decided to act fast before I was priced out of the market, so the hunt was on. I viewed a few 'minters' which turned out to be total sheds before spotting an LMB facelift in Glasgow with 107k on the clock. Initially I really wanted a Silverstone Blue car but I couldn't find a nice one so decided to get myself to Scotland. It turned out to be a lovely example and I was cruising down the M6 the same day. Its a great spec with extended leather doorcards & lower dash, sunroof, alcantara headlining and titanline trim. Here are a few pics Sitting next to the daily & track slag Clio 182 Added a Royal Steering Wheel (brilliant addition, same as on the B10), a ZHP gearknob and E90 sat nav buttons. Needless to say I absolutely love it, it has surpassed my (high) expectations and is getting under my skin in a way that only one other car has done (my 2010 Focus RS). I often get asked how the B10 and the M5 compare, well, they drive very differently despite the similarities to the uninitiated. The B10 rides amazing well and the auto box is great around town yet provides a surprisingly sporty nature when using the paddles and it handles really well indeed. The M5 on the other hand feels a lot stiffer, has quicker steering and is far more physical to drive (which I prefer) and generally feels far sportier. In terms of outright performance they are quite closely matched, with the quick shifting box of the B10 keeping it on the boil easily, although the M5 has the edge. Both are epic machines though and I would totally understand someone owning both at the same time as they deliver very different experiences. More pictures and updates to come.

    Seeing this M5, thoughts?

    Hi guys Wanted you opinions about this car https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1990-BMW-E34-M5-Individual-3-6-Sterling-silver-buffalo-extended-leather-S38/263421344043?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l9372 Do the engine modifications described here help preserve the engine? Perhaps a dumb question but will the engine number tell me the replacement engine is a S38B36 somehow? Your help appreciated!
  8. Hi all Just yesterday, the car started without issue. Today, I went to start it up, turning the key to the on position lights up all the normal lights on the dash. However, I don't hear the fuel pump, or the relay clicking. When I turn the key, nothing, no sound at all, it doesn't even crank. Perhaps the issue is with the Clifford alarm? It does appear to be temperamental so maybe the immobiliser has locked me out of the starting system? I do think this is the issue so how do I disable the damn thing?! Cheers in advance

    M5 valet today. Results

    Hi all Just wanted to share some lovely pics after I had my M5 valeted today. The paintwork was already beautiful but it is pristine now (bar the odd tiny scratches that need paint correction). One of the pics shows the local (Cambridgeshire) chap who did the work, highly recommended! Plus, my first ever E34 M5 'fix' was the replacement of the front fog light bulbs, which now work! Enjoy.
  12. Hello all. In need of some help please. I am busy restoring my M5 and currently I am busy with the back seats. The car has electric headrest at the back. The passenger side works perfect. The drivers side needs fixing, and here is my problem. The connector switch is no longer there, I have 5x loose wires. The worsen my problem the passenger and driver side wires are not the same. Mine is a South African build car.........so here my request. Can someone please take a photo of the two connector switches in order for me to match cables location and color.
  13. Long shot but does anyone have a pair of genuine rear style 65 wheels from an E39 M5? I fancy trying a square set up on my M5 at some point. I'll be refurbing a full set of them so condition not drastically important, just need to be straight with no cracks/bends. Anybody got any fairly local to North West/Merseyside or willing to courier?
  14. Hi all Can anyone tell me what the hell this thing is?! I noticed a couple of drops of oil on it, whereas a similar looking thing (bottom left corner) is dry. It seems like a rubber cap on something, that nut is there for show as far as I can tell, it's not wound onto anything. Someone please enlighten me!

    New owner of M5 3.6

    Hi everyone So after the debacle re: M5 3.8 i was going to purchase a week or so ago, a member contacted me to say he'd been thinking of selling his car. I think he's quite well know here, Andy (aka ringsideE34). After reading his thread, I didn't hesitate to say I'd have it! I just got the car today and of course my first ever picture is at the petrol station! A massive thank you to Andy for all his hard work and I'll try to continue the improvements to this great car. There are a few minor niggles to sort out but Andy was completely transparent about them. Not much to ask considering what he's done already! Here's to many years of enjoyment!!
  16. Hi all Unsurprisingly, i tried to get into my car today and the doors won't open. The alarm light is also out so I have a dead battery. How do I get into the car so I can actually open the bonnet to jump start the car?

    M5 Retrofit

    Hi Guys, I've had a look through the forums and i know this has been ask before but i wanted to make sure. I have a 530i m sport and with electric folding/heated/auto dimming mirrors but I'm thinking of retrofitting aftermarket m5 mirrors, either from SSDD or ebay. As mine are already electric would it be a simple plug and play?? Also on the SSDD websites there's with and without memory glass, is this if your car has memory seats?? Also I've read problems about people receiving LHD versions.
  20. Hi, I'm a fairly new owner of an M5 and have found that one of the rear SLS shocks has a slight leak. I believe the shocks are no longer available? If so, what are my options here? I have read that others have capped off the SLS and going with normal shocks? If this my best option, anyone recommend any particular shocks? I've been in two minds about leaving the car OEM ride height, or lowering it ever so slightly anyway... so this could end up making my mind up for me. Cheers, Luke

    Colour change on HPI

    Hi all Some help appreciated please. I just did a HPI check on the car I'm buying and all is well apart from 2 things. 1. Report is indicating car has 5 manual gears when the seller states 6-speed (can't see from the pics which it is). 2. The report notes a colour change 23/3/1999 from grey to blue. This ties up with the MOT which states blue colour too. The car is described as fjord grey. Possibly resprayed back in 1999? Should I be concerned?

    New to a classic BMW

    Hello everyone! Although I'm not a new forum member, I will soon be a new owner of an E34 M5 3.8, Fjord Grey saloon (picking up next Saturday). I've already introduced myself on the E34 specific section. Pictures as soon as I'm able to after collection.
  23. Hi, I'm Ben from Birmingham, I bought an M5 in March this year, it's been running OK but I've had a fault that's got progressively worse during owning it and I'm very worried it's going to break, as it keeps hitting engine fail safe mode. it's got a very bad hesitation under about 25% throttle, full throttle it's fine but it's so annoying and a bit hard to drive without looking like a proper noob (I'm a technician, I can drive!) I read the fault codes first, got.. cylinder 5 injector open circuit throttle pedal potentiometer circuit A. 02 sensor bank 1 sensor 1 I re- connected the 5th injector as the loom had come unclipped, much better running, fault still there. I changed 2x TPS, 2xAFM, 4x Cam Sensors, Fuel Filter, Fuel Pump, 2x Air Filters, 8x Plugs, and re soldered new wires to the DME for the TPS sensors. Reset all adaptations, drove the car for over 100 miles now with exactly the same persistent problem, only when at 25-30% throttle . Getting very annoying to drive for me and work on so I sent it to a Specialist BMW dealer in warwickshire.. They read the DME and got faults for 2 TPS sensors and the cross check fault code. They tested the wiring, all OK, got an auto electrician to re-do my wiring as they didn't like my white electricians tape Still the same, but now with no fault codes.. They suggested I get the ECU tested as we agreed if may be faulty. My questions to all you wonderful people are.. 1. Can I get a laptop, lead, and try flashing the car myself using data from forums? Is this possible? 2. Is anyone on here a very good auto electrician or does anybody know a good garage to go to that has INPA/GT1? 3. Should I send the DME to a testing company? Does anybody know a good one? Please help! Anything would be greatly appreciated Ben.
