    530d engine swap

    Hi folks, 04 E61 530d bought at 115k mls. Was grand apart from thermostat and manifold until engine siezed at 145k. Regular oil changes before needed. Anyway I paid some dudes to fit a 2nd hand engine. This turned out to be more trouble than they or I expected. When I eventually got the car back it ran ok for a week but then has no power above 1500 rpm. Starts and idles fine so I guess a vacuum or turbo sensor problem. Any ideas where to look? Can inpa activate or talk to turbo? They also broke the clock spring in steering column so airbag lights were on along with no horn. Ist pic , I guess this should be fixed to something? 2nd this resistor on diagnostic port, what's it for? Bought an e3touring to keep me going, e61 is virtually worthless unless running well and then only about €1700. Help

    E39 Touch Screen Head Units

    Ugly maybe, but cost nothing. Not point at throwing money at a €600 car. If anything packs up I'll be back in an e61.

    E39 Touch Screen Head Units

    I am back in an old 530d est. So I fitted old double din Kenwood. Didn't need to cut airbox just bastardise the business stereo bracket. The facia is just jammed in.

    Can I replace MULF with MULF2?

    Thanks, I think I tried all those things. However e61 3.0D engine siezed at 145k rather suddenly. So currently back in e39 touring. Much nicer interior but definitely feels like an older car. Which I suppose it is.

    Can I replace MULF with MULF2?

    I replaced failing mulf with MULF 2. It was straight swap. But still no phonebook from Samsung galaxy s8!

    Headlights - repair possible?

    Mine were the same. Ignore the flashing green light. Never saw the active thing working so don't know if I'm missing anything. Tried drying out lights a few times inc silica gell etc. In the end I just left the two covers off and all has been fine for over a year. Light is still fine even though the lenses don't look great.

    Style 66's on and E61?

    I had style 48 on my E61 530d. Just because they had good tyres. No problem with brakes.
  11. I cant enable aux in with ncs expert because of corrupted vehicle order. Odd things like Thailand motor??? I have an old sony 10 cd changer with fm modulator, which I could connect Bluetooth or ipod to. Is this the aerial connection in the boot! And what is the connection beside it? 12v between red and brown, can I use it to power modulator or will it prevent car from sleeping?

    Sunroof issues.

    Not much help. But my pano rattles horribly when shut. It's fine when open or tilted. I think it's just worn plastic sliders. After 14 yrs. But it's worth it for the sunshine.

    E60 CCC Android system upgrade

    Cool. I see you needed two trolley jacks to install it! How's phone connectivity or are you still using mulf?

    Good man. Waiting for a report. Just threw €100 at a new MULF yesterday. And I have a problem with corrupted VO and cannot enable aux in.
