Pt 2/2: BMW E39 5 Series '96-2003 - iPod / iPhone / Droid - Soundplicity Kit Installation
http://www.bavsound.com/ | Pt 2/2: This video covers the complete process
for installing a Soundplicity ONE / Control II / Control III Kit and
Bluetooth Microphone in an E39 (other late model BMWs are similar but we
release specific videos all the time). Simple to install these kits provide
iPod/iPhone connectivity, Bluetooth voice and music streaming, USB input,
Aux Input and Satellite Radio (in the case of the Control II, iPhone/iPod
and Sat Radio Only) in your 5 Series or M5.

E92 335i vs. E60 550i vs. E39 540i on german Autobahn
Sunday, sunset and no speedlimit! what else do you need to compare two
generations of BMWs V8 Beamer? a referee!
Compared a stock E60 550i SMG Steptronic (367PS) to an E39 540i (M62B44TU)
6speed manual with modified ECU (310PS), M5 3.15 LSD Differential, M5
Brakes, M5 Suspension, M5 Dashboard.
Suddenly we ran into an E92 335i (seemed to be stock 306ps) so we had a
chance to compare the three cars to each other. The 550i was fastest,
followed by 335i which was faster
from 230-250 then the 540i which has a bottleneck in form of a flowlimited
intake manifold. This will be changed, a new comparisson will come soon.
But this time on a rented airfiled for safety reasons. And more cars to
compare it to.
Recorded by two GoPro HD Heros in 1080p mode, one attached to the
rearwindow of the E60 550i, the other was used with a headstrapmount. The
missing LCD videoscreen caused some unusable shots. It is difficult to see
the real performancevariance between the cars, as we weren´t allways on
full throttle. It also made a big difference who stepped on the gaspedal
first. One or two seconds earlier and a 540i is head on with a E60 550i
from 100-240. By hitting the accelerator 1-2 seconds too late, a 335i and
550i smoke a 540i. So don´t get fooled ;)
All cars were limited to 250km/h.
E39 540i Instrument cluster pixels fixed
First test run before final reassembly, all pixels are finally back.
Materials used: enameled copper magnet wire 38 gauge, soldered to the PCB
and glued with Wire Glue (carbon based) to the panel. A thin layer of epoxy
to seal the glued wires. Procedure is as follows:
1. Remove the OEM cable, keep it for reference.
2. Clean both the panel and the board; credit card works well.
3. Cut enough wires to length, about 180 wires roughly 1" long, the shorter
4. Expose copper from enamel on both ends of all wires (I used solder bath
5. Set your panel so it won't move, use a strip of double-sided sticky tape
to hold your wires when you gluing them until the glue is dry.
6. Glue all wires, make sure there are no shorts.
7. Solder all to the board and test.
8. Apply a thin layer of epoxy over the glued wires to seal them
9. Modify the supporting white plastic piece so that it doesn't push on the
PCB board where the wires are now soldered. Basically the areas where the
rubber goes need to be ground off.
10. Assemble and enjoy!
