    E61 Headlights - Brighter please!

    I can't help with the brighter lights, the factory fit bi-xenons on my car (E61 LCI) seem fine... Worth pointing out, if you have a headlight vertical adjuster on your dashboard then you DON'T have factory xenons

    DAB+ for Australia

    That's ok, just giving you a "heads up" on the short comings of the Keystone chip that we experienced. Have you seen this module - https://ugreen.eu/product/ugreen-dab-board/

    DAB+ for Australia

    We tested the Keystone chips some while ago and reject them for several reasons... A bit of the "deaf" side. Any change to any service on a MUX would cause audio disruption even if you were not listening to that service Would not track change to service name or "position" on the MUX without rescanning. We used the Silicon Labs Si4684 in the end IMO a much better chip... I think we used Keystone T1-L4A-8290C or T1-L4A-8250C still have some new ones here if anyone wants them...

    Issues connecting the car to the computer via cable

    Have you checked EDIABAS.ini should have line - Interface = STD:OBD I find the EasyConnect Utility quite handy for changing these files.

    com port new inpa kline cable cannot connect

    Have you used "Device Manager" within Windows to check which Com port Windows thinks you are connecting to? Then set Com port in INPA by editing file - (typically) C:/EDIABAS\Bin\odb.ini

    And just to upset you guys...what about considering fitting a ULF which will give you Bluetooth and rip out all the old stuff

    Should my E39 have a telephone?

    Worth noting that the SIM card should go in to the module at the back (over the rear wheel arch) rather than in the armrest bit.
