    Hey guys, just bought an 18 button obc and stalk from ebay for cheap, found a few guides but they all seem to be about ones that had a lower spec obc before, anyone got a guide on how to do it from an analog clock spec? I'd be happy with just the time back and the temp? Anyone in the know?
    Cheers

    This one may help you (http://www.dazultra.co.uk/bmw/obc/). It's an analogue to 18 button write up.

    I used it to go from the basic OBC to the full 18 button OBC, managed to finish it today, that guide was a huge help.

    Only for Member submitted guides I'm afraid. There are loads of guides on the net and most of them have been posted on here in the past several times, if you perform a search on here you would have found them

    Feel free to do a guide of your own though so you can join the list of Bimmerforums UK DIY guide posters .................

    Just a bit of advice, saying as mine is all working bar the stalk changer and the temp (buying sensor soon), most of the wires match colour to colour on the obc loom to the dash loom. Cheers for the guides very helpful indeed!
