  1. If the DME has a true EWS delete, you can do without the EWS module. Just join the two higher-gauge wires together at the EWS module (pins 2 and 3, I believe), which will let the starter activate.
  2. As it's turning over, the EWS module is accepting the key, which is a good sign. My next suggestion would be to turn to the DME and read the codes. If there's no voltage at the fuel pump, check relay K96 (glovebox). It's ground-activated by the DME (plug 4, pin 10, black/purple wire).
  3. Can you read the fault codes off of the DME and EWS modules?
  4. Removed the seats & carpet from the 523i to upgrade to later-model ASC (works with the MS43 / M54B30), and swap in a black carpet / sport seats / interior bits.
  5. You can swap in the other car's EWS/barrel/key if you remove the EWS functionality from the DME. Trying the donor key without swapping the EWS won't allow the starter to activate (unless you bypass the wiring at the EWS unit), even if the DME has the EWS functionality removed. Needless to say, removing the EWS functionality from the DME would make the car easier to steal, so the barrel fix is the best thing to try first.
  6. Have a chat to Ray @HELLBM regarding converting to manual.
  7. Hi all; Ray @ HellBM has ended up sorting me out.
  8. Thanks Matt, but was hoping to source them locally if possible.
  9. In the middle of re-powering my 523i touring with an M54B30 and need to sort out the fuel system. As the M54 is returnless (as opposed to the M52), and the fuel pressure regulator is integrated into the fuel pressure regulator, the fuel lines are different. I'm looking for the highlighted parts in the following diagram, which are found in any later-model E39s with an M54 or M62 engine:
  10. As Jon said, there should be a USB socket next to the aux in, in the centre console area. Should look like this:
  11. Bought an E46 with the motorsport Alcantara interior, however, I'd rather change it over to leather. Anyone have the seats and/or door cards for sale? E: Also worth mentioning it's for a sedan (four door)
