I have used Forums for years to gleam useful information. But first time posting, so be gentle with me!!
My 530d touring is my first BMW and have now had it since March.
It's an E39 and had a few 'niggles' but at 10 years old,I knew there might be.
So far have-
Blanked the swirl flaps (just in case)
Changed the headlight lenses to clear indicator type (old ones were full of condensation)
Changed brake switch and this week had to replace hedgehog too after flattening my battery.
Jobs, 'in progress' are getting the Webasto to fire up. Is wired to a remote switch and is putting 12V onto pin 1, as per most posts. But still not firing up. Will have to check Webasto model No. as might need earthing at pin 3 on mine?
Also added a Rolf Resler Ibus USB, and building the now 'old fashion' Carputer.
Based on EPIA mini ATX and using Carx. Want to keep my 4:3 navi unit intact. Any help in software there would be appreciated :-)
