    Topaz E39 525d Sport

    So I went home for a weekend and got a few things done, took a couple of photos and installed my double din, my factory amp is playing up so I only have sound at the passenger front speaker, nothing anywhere else. I'm planning on installing a 4 channel amp (Hertz HCP4D), one channel for each front component set (Focal ES165K) and 2 bridged channels for my sub. I still have the issue with the illumination on the double din, when I go back I'll have to check all the voltages again on the illumination wire and check all connections. I did manage to find a way around it by setting it manually. And I need to install a reverse camera also. Hopefully all that will be done by the summer and in the winter I want to take it off the road and start on the sills.

    M5 Mirrors Genuine or fake?

    What's the weak point? Is it the motors themselves or the gears inside as I know there are repair kits for the gears available on eBay

    M5 Mirrors Genuine or fake?

    SSDD motorsports are still selling the reps, I don't think they've updated their website yet but you can drop them an email. "E39 the M5 look mirrors with powerfold and memory function they are 249.95 inc delivery. made to order 2-3 weeks delivery time. they come with anti glaring glasses, but do not have auto dimming function" "they are made in Taiwan. 12 month warranty on motor"
  4. You can have a look at the modlight box, that allows you to turn on the webasto for 30 minutes using the factory key. And you solder three wires in and its done
  5. Hiya. So I finally fitted my double din headunit, everything is working so far except the auto dimming feature. When it's on the sync (auto) feature, it flickers between dimmed and bright when the lights are on. No flickering when the lights are off. If I turn the auto dimming feature off, it's all fine except for when I use android auto, it then flickers between dimmed and not dimmed. It's an E39 facelift, it had a business tape deck. Any ideas
  6. Put the part number into Google and have a look around. I got one pair from autodoc and the other from onlinecarparts. From front and rear it worked out to around 400 with new top mounts. I think you might want to change the upper and lower spring seats, my lowers were gone and I forgot to order them so went without as the dealers were closed and it was a weekend
  7. When I changed mine on my saloon, I used the part numbers for Mtec I as I couldn't find Mtec II shocks. I'll try to find the thread and link it Edit:

    2002 530d Torque app

    When trying to connect to the engine ECU on a wired connection to my laptop using INPA, I have to connect to the ECU with the ignition on and once connected, I can start the car to get live data. See if that works

    Look to see if your crankshaft pulley is vibrating/moving.

    Intake manifold removal tools

    Not always, the majority of cases will give an egr code but no engine management light

    Another thing, if you've got the manifold off. It's a good time to change your vaccum lines

    Maybe a torque wrench for when you tighten it all back down again. There are figures online for the M57 inlet manifold, and it's different for the bolts and nuts if I remember correctly. And just make sure you don't drop anything in, and when refitting check the rubber gaskets are all seated before tightening. One of mine wasn't and ended up leaking and had to be replaced after getting crushed.

    Folding mirror owners

    Yes, you need the driver's side switch pack with the folding button near the mirror adjustment. And you also need the passenger door module for folding mirrors, I believe you can use one from an E38 also.

    They don't fold automatically as standard, you can buy modules that you wire in to fold them automatically. I know the modlight unit can do that as well as a lot of other things.
