I use Dash Command and I'm really happy with it. About 10 dollars and it hooks right up to iPad Air and iPhone 5 well. Takes a couple of minutes to read the signal from the ELM 327 but fun to use...

The quality of the pic isn't great and it isn't big either but isn't that the little plastic cap that goes inside the VANOS?

Trying to trade in

Shouldn't your BMW still be under its service warranty? Also, why would your salesman recommend coming to this site? (Not a bad idea in any case). They should be taking care of you.

Doesn't the...

2002 bmw525i sport package/ m package

I believe Fudman is talking about the whole system...radiator, upper and lower hoses, fan clutch and water pump.

While your changing the pump you might as well change the VANOS seals. Check out...

Cooling system and CCV system.

If they've never been addressed...you will.

Enjoy! I've had my 01 for a little over a year.

2003 525I turbo?

As long as the motor was maintained properly and it's never gone through any issues at all (like overheating, etc) even at 108,000 miles I don't see why not.

I just realized that you're talking...

2003 525I turbo?

My 525i is sentimental to me. That's why I'm more interested in updating/modding this one.

After some research it's better to enjoy the 2.5 liter for what it is. If you're going to spend the money...

2003 525I turbo?

There aren't many choices out there to SC a 525i but there are kits that increase the M54 HP up to approximately 285 (from 184.)

You should be able to find, at least, a decent E39 for $5000 but it may take a lot of searching for a good buy.

Be prepared to replace a few items when you do get it. For example the cooling...
