    Lcm coding advice

    That’s the thing I’m attempting a man lcm into an auto lwr levelling car, it’s coded in nts well no errors, and works as it should But I’m pretty certain at present the lcm isn’t acting on the self levelling set up, so just wondered if there were anyways after coding to further get this going or if the man lcm cannot get coded to work the auto lwr, I’ve read you can go man ecu on auto but never auto on man as the lcm doesn't have the components to drive the wheel to adjust the lights on manual cars as only lcm man have that but usually the man part gets disabled and the lcm just goes through the auto separate lwr module, but in my case it looks like it hadn’t so just need to know how to code that last bit in!

    Lcm coding advice

    My lcm 4b packed in (xenon issued car with self levelling lights) anyway got a replacement lcm out of one of my other cars as I had a spare 3 and the car I question didn’t have the light sensor so whilst the 4 defo has the option for that I decided to use that, however the new lcm I’m using is for manual level aim, as I understand it manual lcm have extra components within the lcm for the roller wheel on the dash to function where as the self level has it’s own control system anyway I’ve put the lcm in and coded it up in nts and it’s working great no faults and operating well, apart from the self level headlights, I’ve been into pa soft after using nts to see if the coding had ticked the xenon light option and it all looks ok, however the lights don’t seem to be auto adjusting, so just wondered if there was a way to code this function back in or will I need an auto level labelled lcm? I read that it can be coded to a manual but manual can’t be coded to an auto one if that’s correct id just like to know what program and option I need to enable to get it tip top!
  3. more than likely with a set of turbines on it!

    Alternative seats for an e39.

    Nothing bolts up to the e39 other than e38 seats unfortunately but stuff can be modded to fit like any other car setup, recaros from Audi or another make would go nice in a e39

    Alternative seats for an e39.

    Audi recaros are also an option but require subframes etc to fit but there similar to the seats Found in the alpina b10 that has factory recaros M5 seats are also a nice upgrade but pricy these days

    530i cats

    With where they cats are at the bottom of the manifold it’s unlikely they’ll go to effort although you never know! But it’s much more work than the usual victims like jazz and Prius

    E39 530I Sport

    I’ve got a 530i sport saloon on Lpg I used as a daily for the last 5 years, only reason I’m selling it is I’ve 4 e39s and offloading this and a 530d sport toruing, nothing really wrong with it bar it needing a prop shaft centre bearing as it has a rattle under Heavy load, had the exhaust flange sorted as it it was blowing on March mot, 200k miles but still a decent car and will be priced under 2k, sills are still solid enough to jack on and haven’t been advised for an mot. so cheaper ones are out there I guess but for something sub 100k the asking prices will be high and firm due to scarcity and values on the up.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    The evo xr are tough to get in rhd the only place I’ve been able to find them rhd is retrofit labs, pricy but they do the job very well!

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    How much were the re done reflectors mate? I get asked when I do light build if I could re do the oem ones but usually put a set of evo xr 2.0 in as I’ve never been able to find the oem ones and there not cheap to have re chromed!

    BMW E39 530D 2001 - 96 E39 540ibrakes.

    This happened to me, I got a really good deal on discs from euros and stocked up on a few pairs as I’ve 4 e39s! Went to put a set of 324mm on my 98 540i the original disc is slightly offset differently, the callipers are identical it’s the carrier that needed swapping as it fouled the facelift disc, swapped the carriers for 530i ones and no problems, worth noting that there are 2 variants of the 324mm discs, and the pre facelift are more expensive than the later ones so well Worth pre facelift v8 owners getting a pair of facelift carriers to use the cheaper discs
  13. Yeah all the ones I’ve done for people putting evo xr s in have all had it really even the oem xenons, most of the time the mirror is pitted dull and flaking, halogens tend to be worse too, as they get worse with age people put hotter bulbs in like cheap hid and that just finishes them off so much better when they have new projectors!
