Default Hi From Calgary


New to BMW's... just bought an unloved '98 540i MSport. I think the most interesting thing about this car is: it has an M5 computer interface.
Still only a 540i though - This is according to my S/W vendor.

So far I have:
  1. resealed valve cover gaskets
  2. swapped out coil pack
  3. repaired heater auxiliary pump
  4. replaced front control arms, center link and swaybar link
  5. starter needed new pigtail to solenoid, that has been ordered
  6. repaired MID pixals
  7. have parts on order for left rear window reg
  8. changed transmission oil
  9. new correct plugs
  10. new ccv valve
  11. repaired throttlebody gasket leak
  12. currently repairing valley pan gasket
  13. sealed a leaky left tail light housing
  14. repaired broken wiring at trunk for brake and license plate light
  15. replaced battery
  16. installed new headlight adjusters
  17. polished headlight lenses
If it ever warms up here I'll be cleaning and restoring the Montana Grey leather interior. I think that's it for now.
Only time will tell.
Oh, I screwed up the ribbon cable to the MID backlight and now have a few lights out on the display. Live and learn.

Can wait to get it back on the road.

Currently learning BMW INPA and DIS and have hopefully resynced my EWS and was able to diagnose the auxiliary water pump failure.
