    Cost v Benefit

    Hi are you converting your manual to auto if so you will need to swap pedalbox i did to my project most of the swapping you should be able to do yourself to save funds if you dont have a garage it will be tuff in the winter.

    Turning a e34 into a e39

    Whats normal about the top half of dash on e34 you dont get a passenger airbag on the dash like on that one so its definelitly a modded e39 dash if he didnt do so many mods it might be ok the plus he has with the engine is he gets full obd2 scanning instead of ads.

    Pity he didnt show the steering box to show did he swap it for the e39 or have to do some mod for the exhaust to fit.

    Its definitely a e39 dash because you wouldnt get the e34 speedo clocks to fit in a e39 dash maybe he just got a bit of it cut-out to fit that screen.

    E34 TDS anti theft

    HI i am looking for information on how to turn this off i got a spare ECU & my car wont start with it i take it that anti theft has to be turned of to get it too work. The reason i am asking is i am going to get the tunning chip off the end for my car but i want a backup ecu going before i go ahead with it.

    central locking / rear doors don't lock

    There is also a electric connection on the latch of the body shell if this connection gets bad from rust you will have problems.

    Auto Gearbox Switch

    Back again i had no luck tracking down the right wiring loom this is the one i need but it costs 400 euro from BMW : Part number 7 so i am going with using a sunroof switch i have & join it into the loom; THERE are 3 yellow wires on it does anyone know the wiring of these pins on the socket so i wont wire it wrong .I also found the kickdown wire it comes into a plug from ecu to steering wheel where it connects to another socket . if i just tap onto this grey wire & run it to the kickdown switch it should solve that problem.

    Auto Gearbox Switch

    yes i found a wire with no connection on it so i put a fitting on it . It looks to be either red or brown with yellow stripe. I take it to be the kickdown wire as its going to driver speaker footwell.
