You got a dead actuator - costs $150 at the BMW dealer. I bought one online for $20. My mechanic had to cut into the panel to get it off, so I bought a used door panel on eBay for $80 dollars...

Was this issue ever resolved?

I am having the same thing, EML comes on along with ASC, then loss of power but then the lights shuts off and car drives fine. I am having this issue on take offs only, not while driving.

Coolant is low. I guess I should have checked that first. There's no way to visually check the resivoir from the outside since its all black. I wonder if the coolant sensor is bad.

DVM-EP93 Performance & Economy Chip for BMW 5 Series

That's why i didn't post any links to the product.

So far from a performance upgrade for the e39 is the clutch/flywheel upgrade.

Short of getting blown, any other bolt on mods that would help?...
