    FS:BMW 530i Sport E39 / Paras/ Bumpers etc £600

    Hi I am interested. This looks like just what I am after. Thinking of doing an engine swop and some other things my touring. What is the year of manufacture, the mileage and how did the engine run? Any ideas about how long it was stood for? Lastly Where are you based?

    Radio modules and head unit etc...

    All have a strong market especially the bm54 and the nav HU. Typically £80 - 100 each if working and in good condition.

    Damp front carpets

    A faulty heater matrix will allow water to get into the footwell.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Is it easy to fit the top mounts? Mine front ones squeak a bit

    e39 audio wiring bm54

    I have the 16:9 nav with standard audio so no amp just the bm54 unit in the boot. I am fitting new cabin speakers and I have had a long look and can not find a good diagram of the bm54 pinouts with designation of the individual colours for the wiring. specifically for the speaker wiring. The ones I have found show the pinouts but not the wiring colours and I would prefer not to take apart the boot (i have a touring). Also I can not find the pinouts for the tweeters for the front. I know they should be there. Unless there is some hidden crossover I don't know about. Any help would be great.

    Dennis. I have been watching your development of this with fascination since we spoke about this some time ago. I am so so pleased that this has finally been realised and all your exceptional hard work has paid off. Very impressive and very well priced. All the best.

    Radio has cut out and won’t come back on.

    Unplug and leave over night. Hopefully that will make it come back to life.

    Interested in this but my understanding is that you need the two rear door cards to go with it. What aftermarket blinds did you purchase? Some excellent work there with your touring. Glad your enjoying her again.
