good luck The center what was removed??? May invalidate everything
The centre box of the exhaust system has been removed and the chap that I got her from said that he had had the car tuned for economy don't make sense to me might as well have bought a micra ***128513; ***128513; a BMW is for the love of driving not economy, OK I shall investigate this further and let you know, I was going to get a new ecu with the scanner giving me the part number lol ***128513;

Fault codes e39 530i

Right guys I have replaced bank 1 and 2 oxygen sensors as the diagnostic said they were in active, it now staits they are active, I now have bank 1 fuel trim limit and bank 2 permissable limit reached, maf live data on idle is between 17/18kg on reving the engine up to 4000rpm the maf live data is peaking at 104kg,and back down to 17/18kg on tick over,, the car runs fine but is a bit juicy I know it's a 3,0l but it should be getting more than I'm getting, any advice is greatly appreciated been looking at you tube video with people cleaning the maf is it worth it, or is it best buying a new one, cheers guys, ***128513;

What a smashing ride. I had the wonderful opportunity to be chased by a X3 over 100km. reaching 215 on the clock but not a cent more. i begged, i swore, i pleaded -- but the f%^$#kng X3 stayed on my tail. how can I loose this asshole Not true. it was a great experience and i doubt it can ever happen again. Thanks friend. You are a great driver and it revitalized an old senile burnout.
Never do Caledon to Napier again. Wishing you a long and super DRIVE life ! Willy Cape Town 525i 2001. 220k on the clock.
