    Tell me more about the HBA retrofit - I'd like to add that to my E61...

    E6x Mileage Register

    Is there one? if not, I'll start here. Dotcom1970 213945 miles E61 530d SE Auto (as an aside, I see my old long departed E39 is still in the top 5 mileage register for that model!)

    Steering wheel position keeps resetting.

    My understanding of comfort access is that it lifts the wheel and makes the seat more 'open' hence aiding access to the car, but then moves everything back into the drivers positions
  5. Hi, and welcome to the forum - Whereabouts are you based? I only ask, as it's not necessary to visit a main dealer for all the updates and coding. There are a few third party places that ther forum members have used and can recommend. I'm surprised that the Mobridge dealership couldn't do the required coding for you, as it's a fairly common job, or at least known somebody that could....
  6. I've got the fully electronically adjustable steering wheel along with the fully electronic comfort seats, although I don't have comfort access. I've noticed that recently, that the steering wheel height was lower than I remember, and then after adjusting it back to the highest position, found it would then lower back on power off. I'm not even sure the memory functions on the seats are even working correctly, as I'm the only driver, and it's very much set and forget. Is there something obvious I'm missing that will keep the wheel at it's highest setting?

    Rear Parking Sensors

    you can adjust the volume on the CIC, it's under settings, sounds I think. No idea on the older CCC though.

    Rear Parking Sensors

    Figured it out. I removed the back speakers to upgrade them. Put them back in and got my reversing bongs back

    it's just a bypass resistor...

    Rear Parking Sensors

    POssible, I guess - I didn't disconnect the battery, I just unplugged the BST cable and then fitted the bypass, so perhaps I spiked something - odd that it's only the rear bleeper though. No, I checked the settings, can only adjust the level of the beep, perhaps more control in INPA?? Nope, no water ingress, got a hole drilled in the bottom of the well, and my tubes are clear (ahem!)

    E61 auto roll-up boot cover retraction

    Could be the small motor/gear assembly under the left hand trim panel has stopped working. I've got to replace mine, as it's very noisy. Part Number is 9918003164

    Rear Parking Sensors

    For some reason, my rear parking sensors have stopped making the interior beeping noise. They are working as the display is all correct, just that they are muted. Front sensors work and beep ok. I was working on the car on Saturday fitting a BST resistor, and since then they have stopped. Seems odd that one the rears have stopped sounding though. ForumHiveBrain - Any ideas?

    BMW Retrofit HUD Kit

    From watching that video, it just needs power and tapping into the canbus connection, so I wonder if it's possible on an E6x?
