    EGR delete/remap

    I personally don’t think it will but I cannot refer you to any sources for evidence. What’s more I cannot see the benefit to the car of sending exhaust gases back into the system. Mine is regenerating happily as it did before and I can’t say it is more frequent. She has just clocked over 192k...

    Yes, there is a test sequence for the EGR where it is commanded through 7 or 8 setpoints and compares to actual position. BTW, I think the more up to date ISTA D is easier to install. Keliuss

    Insurance Bull****

    "Every Little Helps", (As the actress said to the Bishop)! Give Tesco Insurance a try. I have recently found them to be very competitive. Come renewal time of course they are little different to the rest so the annual 'shop around' has now become the norm.

    Insurance Bull****

    Admiral are no different from any other insurance company in hiking premiums after the first year; the trick is to compare beforehnd and engage with them as to why they should still want your business and how to get a price that is fair for both parties. If you arm yourself with comparisons and have a price-point at which you are prepared to walk then you should get what you want.

    Odd EGR Valve Issue possibly MAF?

    Thanks for the replies guys. Yeah I was thinking egr clean and check vac hoses for leaks... I took the egr off and like keliuss it only had a light coating of soot. Not gunked up at all... makes me think it might have been sticking almost shut perhaps? I think I need to get a working install of DIS to see if I can run some tests. Otherwise I'm just pissing in the wind...

    Help - A cyclist broke my wing mirror (deliberately)

    Yep. More years ago than I like to think about I came across 4 young lads - maybe 14-16 years - pushing around and gobbing on an elderly bloke who looked like he was maybe homeless. I gave them a bollocking and told them to eff off and do something useful. Can't imagine me doing that today and walking away in one piece.
  15. Hi M535-MAN, Very keen if you can find another similar set. Let me know please on your findings. Thanks.

    N47 oil leak.

    Crankshaft oil seal probably. They seem to have a lifespan of 70-90k miles.

    IRIS- MID Retrofit

    Retrofit instructions are here:- The instructions say that it will require coding, but I would fit it all first and test it to see if it’s actually necessary.

Looking forward to getting out in it this weekend after using my van all week.

    IRIS- MID Retrofit

    Well, this is my first post here. Since I bought my 530i the radio (IRIS) volume knob worked badly, and the IRIS face has an ugly scratch. And yes, the IRIS isn´t very pretty itself, it looks a bit poor. So an upgrade to a MID seemed reasonable, if only for looks (I have the low instrument cluster so I know I´ll only see the radio information on it). Mi radio casette/IRIS is one piece, the radio CD/MID I´ve just bought comes in two pieces. And I don´t know how to "feed" the MID, there is a plug on the side that needs a connector. I bought a retrofit cable, too, P/N 65129405409, but I don´t know where to connect it. Will it need coding? I´ve heard people saying not. I´m a total novice on electrical, any advice would be very appreciated. Thanks!

    I removed mine to clean/inspect it recently. I was very surprised at how clean it was compared to other cars I've seen. I've no reason to suspect it was ever cleaned before and it just had a light coating of soot. I was expecting to find it very gunked up. Default position is closed and the spring keeping it closed is very strong, so quite a bit of force is required to open it. 40A4 seems to be an EGR deviation error. I'd be focusing on that. Perhaps a vacuum leak. Strange that pulling the EGR vac does not throw an error though. Keliuss

    Another newbie

    Hi, I´ve just registered here. Last summer I bought a E39 530i manual, black/beige leather, in rather decent condition, about 85,000 miles on it. A couple of things needed replacing (oil level sensor, crankshaft sensor, ABS/TCS module) and another couple for caution (water pump and thermostast) but the car runs great. Thanks.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Did you have the base stereo of hi-fi to start with? I've just replaced the base stereo with MB Quart speakers and also an amp. I was pleasantly surprised at the improvement in sound quality. I expected it to be better but exceeded my expectations! Sent from my LG-H870 using Tapatalk

    Anyone live in or near windsor

    Looking at the mot history on this car, advisors for all 4 discs. So that would be a full set of discs, pads, sensors and reset. Pos £500.
  26. The world has definitely changed in terms of confrontation; very many people either believe they have nothing to lose or somehow think they're playing a video game for points and prizes. I've had enough knives drawn out toward me in a previous profession to know the limitations of what is and isn't possible on both sides of the conflict, as well as having to deal with dozens upon dozens of assault victims of almost every concievable type and level. Personal circumstances and boundaries and extents of your responsibilities will, sorry should, hugely affect your deeds and actions in the face of confrontation; if you are in a situation where you feel you can and should risk everything to defend your point of view then you must be very confident of your own ability, and your ability to defend your actions in a court of law. That to me is a huge stretch of many intangible variables, so as I said, I've become non-confrontational and if I feel action is warranted then I'll weigh up everything so that the odds are hugely in my favour. Whether I then decide to do anything is up to me.

    Have you cleaned the egr. I wonder if it's stuck partially open. I not 100% sure but if you've disconnected the vac pipe to it it should be closed all the time and the ecu should detect there is no gas being recirculated from various sensors and throws the eml light. Might be worth checking.

    N47 oil leak.

    My E 61 520d, with the N47 engine seems to be leaking a bit of oil at the back of the engine somewhere above the bellhousing. I am going to clean it all off and see if I can spot the leak but I thought I would also ask, are there any well know areas for all leaks in this vicinity?
