    3.6 M5 Alternator Trouble

    Great to see you got it sorted. I've been spectating the thread and in fairness all the help came from just one very knowledgeable @whiskychaser Keliuss

    Idrive gone funny.

    If that's all it took to remedy it then it's probably the LVDS connection is loose at the rear. It's just 2 Torx screws to remove and the unit pops out towards you. Connector in question is the stainless steel elbow type. Although my advice would be to leave alone unless it got worse. Keliuss

    Anyone got INPA for N47 engine?

    I would chase up on this. I had a cable for my 1997/98 E39 and that was no good for my E60. Perhaps your E39 was newer than mine but I think you might still need a different one for 2008 E60. Keliuss
  4. Pretty much as stated here except she no longer has/needs her own car at present. I always offer to share the driving if we go out and alcohol is involved. I drive to destination and she drives back is my rule of thumb Keliuss Edit: she also thinks it's too big. The car that is!

    Interior LEDs [White] ? More modern?

    My cheapo bulbs don't flicker and happily fade when told Keliuss

    540i touring. "The Improvening!"

    My passenger wiper is like the rest of them after 25 years. Reading up on it across the web, it seems to be just as much a problem on LHD cars. So much so that a guy in Germany ships repair kits worldwide. He's on bimmerforums. Keliuss

    Interior LEDs [White] ? More modern?

    Kept forgetting to check lol. But yes, my LEDs do fade out. It's probably a shorter fade than the filaments. Seems to fade out to a certain dimness and then cuts out completely, but definitely fades. Keliuss

    Torque Pro and Extended PIDs for BMW

    Also, just in case you check a weather service for ambient pressure readings anywhere in the world, these are always adjusted to sea level value. So pressure in Madrid today is reported as 1010mbar (adjusted to sea-level). The true pressure is probably something like 925mbar, and this is the value the car sensors would read. Seems confusing but this is done in meteorology because isobar (pressure) maps would just look like terrain maps if they weren't adjusted to sea-level. Keliuss

    Torque Pro and Extended PIDs for BMW

    I observe the same. I've never understood exactly how the car calculates the values. With engine off, or at low rpm, that formula: Backpressure - Ambient pressure = Differential pressure, never holds true for me. I consider it a rough guideline. For me it only becomes (slightly) more accurate under normal driving conditions, like motorway driving at 2000 rpm say. The car seems to take some sort of baseline ambient pressure reading when started (after a sleep mode or two) as well as ongoing ambient readings. Like I said, altitude also plays a big role. Last year I drove from sea level, (north of Spain) to Madrid at about 650m above sea level. I was watching the app all the way and saw the ambient pressure drop off to 900mbar (can't remember exactly). My exhaust back pressure was very consistent for the entire journey, (say about 1050mbar). The differential reading in this example did rise up to about 150mbar and the calculated soot reading went through the roof. The car went into a cycle of regen after regen after regen as it wrongly tried to clean out imaginary soot. Parked the car for lunch, (about and hour) so plenty of time for the car to go to sleep mode, and resumed the journey, readings were the same and regens continued. Got to Madrid and the next day the car seemed to have adjusted to it's new high altitude (low pressure) environment. Ambient pressure was correct for the altitude (900mbar), exhaust backpressures were same as previous day, about 1050mbar on motorway but the differential pressure was now something sensible like 30mbar. So yes, there is something else going on. On my return journey to sea level, backpressure went negative (-150mbar) and the car went 1000km (exactly) between regens. Keliuss

    Trying to install tempomat

    Here's a link to the official BMW retrofit procedure, which might help. The site is Russian but just click the link under the pic. The document appears to be in German but each section is translated into a number of languages further in. I've not done this job myself so I'm not able to help. Keliuss

    Overheating

    I think those temps are normal enough for the petrol engines, but I don't think the sudden drop from 102 to 79 sounds feasible. If it was me I'd keep monitoring the hidden menu. I know it's a nuisance to call it up, but you'd be surprised how proficient you become at it after a week Keliuss

    Overheating

    Have you considered it might be the sensor on the blink. Mine went a few months back and started off by throwing the overheat warnings. Use the hidden menu to see your coolant temp and go for a drive. If the temp jumps up and down suddenly it's the sensor. Mine was fluctuating wildly from 70 to 120. Changed the sensor - solved. FYI the "thing in the rev counter" isn't a temp gauge, it's a moving redline indicator. Keliuss

    Remap for 530D & other potential mods

    Lots of people upgrade to Android. Here's a thread from a while back: A bit dated now but still relevant. The Android versions are up to 10 now on these units but they are generally still the same features. Search ebay. Keliuss

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    A good clean with rubbing alcohol, then some sandpapers from about 400 grit through 600, 800 to 1000. You can use a slightly damp cloth to raise any loose fibres then sand them down. Dabbed on some black leather dye and applied some rub on leather finishing lacquer. Keliuss
