    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    The point I was trying to say is that I understood they just checked and didn't change anything. Or did I get it wrong?

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    If your car has original sport steering wheel airbag it would be interesting to see the sticker at the back of it so that really is not the version which should have been replaced.

    Webasto - idiots guide

    So to make it work as pre-heater when that options was not taken from the factory? Do you have MID or nav screen to activate it?

    Webasto - idiots guide

    Not exactly sure what you are after. Original Webasto and on which model, age?

    BMW e39 Webasto

    AFAIK E46 Webasto has different wiring and bus commands compared to other models like E38/E39/E53 which have identical Webasto control.

    BMW e39 Webasto

    Webasto control is totally different on E46 compared to E39/E38/E53 post 3/99 (K-bus control). Just out of interest what's that refurbishing firm in France? There are several firms in Finland which are very familiar with these BMW K-bus controlled Webastos.

    HID dim beam aim too low

    Now that you have INPA check codes on LCM and LWR modules. You can also activate the aim movement too see what it does. It will also show live data from level sensors. Level sensors for headlight aim are on right side front and rear. For front sensor it's quite typical that the rod connected to lower control arm fails.
  8. We can partly blame BMW ETK that the new equivalent is not listed on E39 diagram. You have to dig a little deeper to find this correlation. .
  9. It's black 3,5x13 mm sheet metal screw. The same part was used on E61 and replaced with that new part already in 2008.
  10. Replaced by part nr. 07119904309.

    Injector removal - plan needed!

    You can change the exhaust manifold from above even without removing cam cover. Of course it's a bit fiddly but can be done.

    535d The Extra Thermostat fitting Guide.

    Gonzo can reply on his behalf but I still give my thoughts. A thermostat on the top hose is a bodge compared to the original system where the main thermostat reacts on the coolant mixed from engine itself and all the return lines (heater core, oil heat exchanger, EGR cooler, gearbox heat exchanger and bleed path via expansion tank). A thermostat on top hose will only react on the coolant coming from the engine and for it to react it would need more bleed flow which would inevitably cause more flow to radiator. With a simple hose thermostat there will be more fluctuation on temperatures and it will always be a compromise. The original system is actually very clever and works great as long as the thermostats work correctly. Isolating a single circuit with separate thermostat like with the gearbox heat exchanger is a totally different thing compared to isolating the whole system. Same thing with EGR cooler if EGR is mapped out. .
  13. This was and still remains a mystery to me why N54 (x35i) was never offered on EU market in E6x chassis. This would have been a perfect compromise in many petrol heads' minds. I guess it had something to do with the strong diesel push at that time and the market was not seen.

    If the E39 hadn't been invented

    It's a shame they never made E40. It would have been phenomenal.

    Which Front Bumper - E39 530i Sport Touring

    I can't remember exactly but I think 10 would be close.
