The rear shelf is sun bleached, as my sun blind has been up all the time there's a definite two tone shade going on.  Under the speaker grills was the original black so I thought I'd use some black leather dye, the picture doesn't do it justice but it looks 100% better than it did.  I've just received my cable set from Jimmy and loaded it onto my computer so I can sit in garage and view on the big screen, not sure if I'm going to have a go at coding as could be out of my depth as there's nothing mechanical to mess with.  Are there any lists of e39 codes available ?????

Thanks Pidgeonpost, I actually found a very similar list yesterday,  I was more after what can be coded to give a more personal feel to my car if that makes sense ??

I purchased some Red 7 (autosmart) I must say as my wheels were really contaminated with rust from my disc's after standing outside for quite some time prior to giving the old girl some tlc they really did scrub up well
