    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    A random stint of progress on the fleet. New rear tyre on the E39 last week since the previous had sidewall damage/split...prepping for sale next as I have a company car now and next to no room E30 was rolled out, washed down and got a new car cover. Motivated to get my nails back into the M30 swap now! E36: picked up some E46 330i front calipers and rotors yesterday and an MSport wheel off @Palazzo earlier tonight to boot! Looking for front and rear strut braces next

    WTB E39 540i M sport Muffler

    Have one but is in Auckland, i imagine it'd be cheaper to collect it rather than ship it though!
  4. Nailed it, pulled an adapter off, I would've never tried that. And just like that I have Radio again. Cheers @hotwire
  5. Apologies in advance if pictures are large, uploading from phone 12v to antenna confirmed. continuity across aerial is fine. I understand the grey feed from the c pillar is the main antenna feed? Where’s its home? And I feel like this plug end been changed?? Have few connections around without a male plug too, never looked at my old E39s this closely so no idea if that’s standard.
  6. Don't have the aux input unforutnately hqstu, a year or so short OK so I need to check the radio module in the boot, will try some continuity tests I'm thinking...I had a quick look and facelift E39s don't seems to have a lot of resources for diagrams? Good source/link anyone? Would the power to the radio module potentially have been disconnected I'm not getting a thing but static on am/fm bands.
  7. Hi Guys, On an E39 does the head-unit on the 16:9 Nav unit connect directly to the aerial booster on the C pillar or is signal received via one of the units in the boot? Trying to diagnose why I have no am/fm signal. My E39 used to have a dynavin installed but was removed, now I've refitted the factory unit....Would or does the dynavin install usually involve cutting into the aerial connection somewhere I can check? Cheers,

    Replaced by broken drivers side mirror plastics and had the air-con regassed recently. Just got the Radio and rain sensor to sort and she'll be mint.

    Yea was a decent amount in there! Nothing a bit of compressed air couldn't solve though

    CBF started its own thread so here’s a big poat, picked up another members silver 540i MSport with a damaged engine off trademe a couple weeks ago, this weekend I got both cars out to my parents farm and pulled both m62s from the silver 540i (chain slipped) and my old black 540i (electric issues) and swapped the good engine into into the silver body. Cleaned it up and reassembled the interior whenever it rained and after refilling fluids etc I managed to drive it home today! Safe to say my hands are f****d but we’ll worth the effort and experience! New tyres tomorrow and need to figure out how to get the OEM Head unit going again next. Pics:

    Combination of things. Lazy being one of them. Refurbing the rear set of DS2's and the front Style 66 tyres too worn for WOF. lol

    Cleaned the E36. Picked up a 328i exhaust cheap - hopefully an upgrade on the 323i single pipe.

    Replaced cam sensor on the E36, now realize how bad it was running as feels like I’m driving a new car! Swapped in some new plugs for the hell of also.
