    yeah, it does weigh a bit and sometimes my boot have to give it a helping start if not used regular, il see how it goes though

    my 540 touring

    got the heating elements in and active massage into the contours, just got to get brackets welded on for tables then ready to dye in champagne one issue i came across was for head rests, the motor is longer on comfort than it is contour yet head rests are the same height and shape but the mirror versions stuck up about an inch, so took the leectrical connectiosn off and swapped them over so head rest sits flush

    my 540 touring

    it is yes, i managed to probably find the only one brand new in the box lol at a bargain price at that lol wheels are up for 1200 but lowest is 1k the refurb cost me 400, badges 110 and valves 44 let alone the removal and fit of tyres and balance, sort of wish i left them in the rough state and took the offers i got before hand

    my 540 touring

    i hate multispoke wheels mate, as well as the costs of the bits for them, as i bought new badges, valves and cap pads all genuine alpina at silly money, plus the refurb im surprised they havent sold considering what im aksing for them, possibly due to being square set up but then staggered is no difference in looks or not much anyhow but if i have to use them for winter i will as paras are alot rarer and look better being they are dished

    my 540 touring

    thought id post a couple of pics, recently done a deal against my 530 touring for this 540 as i was pestering the lad for age s to sell it me lol as it needed a box so a deal was done and finally had a great basis for the mods i wanted to do it got fully wet flatted and polished to give a nice deep gloss shine as i hate orange peel, my 19 paras fitted, the spec of the car is nice, even power boot ive recently fitted double glazing as well, and just finished fitting full airlift air ride into the car with all new arms as well, and chopped the spare wheel out a bit to create a route so i can run dual exhsusts properly i have full leather lower dash, consoles, door cards to eventually fit in champagne, as well as contours, that i will be converting to heated and active massage, door blinds, and also e38 headrest mirrors and tables to be fitted to contours as well. it shoould be a ncie spec car when ive finished as i plan on alcantara roof lining and maybe full boat space too, with anice clean stereo install to be able to keep load bay as well some pics and some genuine 19 inch alpinas i had refurbished which ill use as winter wheels unless they sell

  11. just got myself some e38 contours that i was told were heated until they arrived so im after some heated comforts to take the pads out of as i believe its the same style back piece almost, ive searched everywhere and cant seem to find anything i dont need teh base being its a sprt and i can use the heated pads out my spare sport seats but the backs are different due to the back piece being able to fold
  12. can anyone help please im trying to find a wiring diagram for the touring power boot just bought myself a kit but the wiring was all chopped ive managed to work out power, earth, ibus, on the ecu and switch i have a white/green wire and a grey wire, so im assuming these go to each other it then leaves me with 2 grey/yellow wires on ecu and on switch red/yellow brown/black white/brown i think the red/yellow goes to a junction box in the car somewhere where others join up im also guessing the other 2 are for maybe the switch light but ive no idea on the 2 grey ones on the ecu any help please
