  1. 2019 BMW M5 comfort access security

    General BMW Discussions
    I am swapping my M3 F80 competition for a new M5 this week. The new car has comfort access, which I usually wouldn't spec due to security concerns. On the M5 comfort access is standard and I have a pack that includes the display key. My question is does the 2019 comfort access system have...

    BMW 5 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E12
    Hello all. I am learning and trying to understand the complexity of this E60 headlamp assy. I thought that the top headlamp access door was intended for the angel eyes. But is is not.

    General BMW Discussions
    So after the locking issues which it just seemed a passenger door wasn't being fully closed everything seemed fine.

    I currently use a Huawei E5573 4G box and have it permanently powered from a 12v USB adapter that I plug into the rear cigarette lighter in my F11 520d. This works relatively well but sometimes performance is poor and the box gets knocked around a fair bit. Looking at the 4G box I noticed it...

  18. E61 comfort access fuse position?

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi all, could anyone tell me the whereabouts of the fuse for comfort access in a 2007 E61? Unfortunately, the previous owner saw fit to remove all useful documents such as fuse diagrams. I can find lots on the internet, but none with a comfort access fuse after (I think) 2004. Prior to this, it...

I purchased an adapter but so far no success, but for £7 it was worth a gamble. Has anyone else tried this with any success? 20 to 16 Pin...
