the amp is what needs to be coded...the e38/e39/e53 all use the same amp, but it is coded based on the equipped options & parameters of each vehicle. A used amp from an e39 put into an e38 or e53 will work, but the sound will be muddled because it is set-up for the interior dynamics of the 5 series...not the 7 or X5.
