    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...

    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

    Should my E39 have a telephone?

    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.

    I have several of the Keystone modules (not on Monkey board) is anyone wants them... We use the Silicon Labs Si4684 in one of our products, but it's mounted on a large PCB and not suitable for automotive use

  19. Thinking about upgrading my M-ASK (M-ASK2) maybe a bigger screen or whole hog NBT... so, grabbing the trace file with NCS Expert I see a line in NCSDummy: CID - Central Information Display cid_basis cid_mid activ cid_high - 8.8" widescreen display Does this mean that the latest M-ASK supports a wide screen?

    Or you could use one of these - BMW Auxiliary Power Adapter But, they are as rare as hen's teeth. Used to be about $10 but trending @ $200 on the Bay of E BMW part number 82 11 0 004 073

    E39 touring subframe bushings tool rental

    Sorry, never got the message In any case I sold the tool a while ago when I got my E61
  24. That engine certainly sounds a bit "gruff" and tappy... I have a 2010 530i @ 48,000 miles and my engine certainly sounds much smoother than that. I haven't noticed a "wollowly" back end, just a bit "skippy" especially on the cooler weather, which I put down to the Bridgestone RE050 run flats. BTW my car has an N52N !!! - work that one out? It's also an auto 6 speed, and in Sports mode takes off like a scolded cat....:-)

    For the F range for serious programming or coding it's either E-Sys or ISTA-D/ISTA-P have a wander over here - Another coding site.... It depends what you want to do as there are other programs like Carly for BMW, or Torque on Android.
