There's also line at the top, right where those things that looks like the back of arrows. If that's the line, then I am low. If it's not then, I should be ok.

Hey gang. What would be considered full? The line towards the very top or the middle? It's not immediately obvious to this noob and I have a long trip tomorrow.

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?...
