E39 540i preventative maintenance ?

Pelican parts is great, but don't forget OEMbimmerparts.com.
They have some of the BEST prices and the fastest shipping. BavAuto is at the BOTTOM of my list, prices suck. Cheers

Broke the Connector off Oil Pressure Sensor

You could always go to a salvage yard and cut off another connector. Then, solder and make sure you weatherproof the splice you make.

Battery Life

You're entering borrowed time. Be proactive and have it replaced. Be sure the car is "registered" after doing so. Otherwise you will have issues.
Best regards

I'm researching the same engine transplant, it seems like its pretty straight forward, but a little tricky wiring up the engine loom.
