There’s a guy on m5 board - fixels- blackknight 530i who does it, I got him to put a new ribbon in mine also. There’s another guy in the states who also does the mod and does remaps. Fixels doesn’t . Bear in mind some mappers won’t know how to remap

the ECI without wiping out the soft ware that gets the oil temp

guage and warmup lights to work.

so I used dudmd for both (cluster software and remap) and for fixels

just to do the cluster repair.

Thanks for providing that info :) , Just a couple of questions regarding the cluster software :

How was the coding done?
What info did he need to do it?
In your opinion was it a worth while mod?

Cheers fella.

I like the mod as you have a little more info on the dash - oil temp. (Although I think you can access all this stuff through the secret menu/Intravee)

i Think it looks cool. It’s basically the same as the e39 m5 cluster without the M logo.

there was a code needed for the cluster which I got hold of using an auto logic. I’ll need to lool

through my old

messages to

check. What this was. - but basically this enables

the cluster to read the correct mileage of your car.

i sent my cluster and ecu and he did the rest. 2 week turnaround. I picked up an ecu on eBay for £100 and sent him that so my car wasn’t off

the road, he virginised it (so it was plug and play on any car) and remapped it.

Price...I'm seeing much higher mileage lower spec cars with a fraction of the above with average bodywork for £4500+.

So I’m going to say ono £6500

 

Car drives really well and smooth. It is quick!

I’m selling as we’re just changing cars in the household. (335d sold) F10 M5 Competition Pack bought a fortnight ago and M3 Competition Pack due in this week. Am in two minds about whether or not the e39 M5 goes.

Now officially up for sale. Will get pics out later this week.

Can you get them up quicker please as my pal has been looking for a touring for a while and feel he'd be interested in this?

 

Also; what's the interior spec, any heated seats, memory seats, folding wing mirrors etc?

 

Thanks
