    Battery charger thing for when installing XHP

    Get yourself a computer server PSU maybe like a HP DPS-600PB or this - HP-ProLiant-750W-PSU-Power-Supply can be modded to give 13.5 volts... My version: PDF here may help - Charger_Mod-Up 2.pdf I should say that these server PSU are good for at least 40Amps
  2. High spec but basic Air Con... Looks very good if you are REALLY going to be able to stand a tractor engine after your 6 pot...
  3. You don't see the exterior when you are driving it It's the 239,000 Miles that's a bit of a killer (if it's all motorway with replacement engine & turbo then not too bad) & the down market SAT Nav....
  4. Actually, I was thinking more of a break in the wiring loom at the hinge...
  5. It's a bitch to fix, so don't get fobbed off. Some light reading: BMW E61 tailgate wires.pdf BMW E61 Tailgate Wiring Repair.pdf
  6. Are E6x really more unreliable than the F1x series - I don't know Was the "new" engine a full engine or just the block, pistons and crank? What about the injectors & swirl flaps? Torque converter and gearbox?
  7. 239,000 miles - I don't think so... Might have a newish engine, but everything else will be on the way out...
  8. Yes, even if it's a Volvo...
  9. Regardless of what you get... it is mandatory to post pictures
  10. Not M Sport But has NBT with Pro-Nav
  11. I guess you don't want an E61 530i ? 2010 with 76,000 miles Might be selling mine if I can find a G31 540i with the right spec (and price)...

    After Market Reverse Cameras

    As it's a diesel, interference that changes with engine speed is surely going to be either alternator or injector solenoids, rather than hot monitoring of the reversing lights. So, is it pickup of some sort on the long video cable? I'm not sure how you would test for that Have you got access to an oscilloscope?

    Does the frequency of the banding alter when you rev the engine? I think these things have a 220uF output capacitor in them, might be worth doubling that by adding a second one (220uf 25v) directly across the feed to the camera. And a question for me.... What's the best way to get the original handle out without damaging the paintwork?

    For anyone else reading this topic... A whole range of handle cameras here - Car-Reverse-CCD-Rear-View-Camera-For-BMW-E82-E88-E84-E90-E91-E92-E93-E60-E61 And a couple of other files that may help with the wiring: BMW E61 Tailgate Wiring Repair.pdf bmw E61 tailgate wires.pdf

    After Market Reverse Cameras

    Original camera just used a sharp knife along the back edge (furthest away from the lens) then gently eased what is the camera cover off. Camera is set in a block of flexible silicon so just can be pulled out by hand. I'm not sure what absolute resolution the NBT can handle but seems ok on what is meant to be 818x622 New camera held in with hot melt glue

    After Market Reverse Cameras

    I'm doing the same thing on my E61... got an EBay handle with camera, but changed the camera for a better quality one with dynamic lines. Also, going to use a wireless connection from back to front so only need to get power to the wireless box and camera, so may be easier than getting the video cable through.

  20. Checking this morning Torque and Power displays both seem to work ok, not sure how accurate they are. With regard to navigation, what hardware revision is your NBT? Have you coded "GYRO_INTERN: nicht_aktiv" ?
  21. da_murphster: FM works well but DAB with windscreen antenna is not good Bluetooth for phone and streaming work well, but I have a large USB stick (128GB all FLAC files) with all my music on that sits in the glove box. No problem with GPS works well - my car originally had a MASK-2 with Business Nav. Never tried the Power Meter etc.... There is a software update if you know the VIN of your donor NBT - https://www.bmw.com/en/footer/software-updates.html Video for heating controls here (scroll to bottom of page) - https://www.bmwcustomretrofit.com/navigation-retrofits/bmw-nbt-retrofit-adapter-for-e-series-nbt-e-series-evo-id5-id6 I used my original MASK panel and modified the retrofit adaptor to give 5v instead of 3.3v which the CIC panel requires. Most of the coding I did on the bench with a bit of fine tuning in the car. Other than the iffy DAB it's a good upgrade
  22. NBT all installed at last...
  23. I have a Visteon VP5KAF-19C034-CH BMW part number 65129176958 (HW Rev 5) which is spare but I don't know if it does DAB+

    please help

    A quick Google of "CCC vs CIC vs NBT came up with this -

    please help

    535i Andrew - I don't think so, my car has a basic M-ASK and Business Nav so nothing special, but it is one of the last E61 built in 2010. Back to the original poster... you should be able to work out the part number for the trim from the RealOEM link. To change the controller you need to lift the centre console which is a bit of a pain as it's screwed in from below. Maybe you should consider an NBT rather than CIC as the NBT has everything in one box.
