I don't believe the bolts are sold separately. They only come with the tensioner and idler pulleys. I remember some people saying that the tensioner should be 25 Nm + 90-degrees but all of the...

You'll never get the tach needles to line up correctly in an E60. That's been an issue since I purchased my JB4 5+ years ago. The CANflap used to work, but maybe the recent "toggle" change wasn't...

Hard to read your post, but it sounds like you over-tightened the bolts and stripped the threads in the OFH. I think they only require around 16 ft-lbs, perhaps even less. You'll either need to...

You cleared the codes and they came back? Battery charged? Also, I'm assuming you installed the charge pipe locking clip at the throttle body. Looks like it's missing in the earlier pictures.

I wouldn't touch the transmission if it's shifting well unless you know the fluid had been replaced at least once. At 176K miles, the detergents in the new fluid could cause a myriad of problems. ...

Don't you think that's kind of an important detail to leave out of your original post? Just wrapping the wire around the connector may not be sufficient. Solder a wire from that connector to new...

2007 N54 and a 30BA code sure sounds like one or more fried MOSFETs. They're simple to check using a standard multimeter (many YouTube videos out there on how to do that). And good call replacing...

I think your current firmware came out over 1 1/2 years ago. Do as Terry said and pay particular attention to the red text in the second post within the JB4 sticky thread.

Crap, that's not good and could mean the head was, in fact, damaged. Hopefully not though. I'm not sure if the seal can be installed without the expensive BMW fuel injector ring seal installation...

OK, you're wrong. :) The G4 hasn't been supported for quite some time and you have to use G4-specific firmware, the latest of which was released back in 2012. OP, the "newest" G4 firmware can be...

Since the E60 doesn't have an oil temp gauge to hijack, the JB4 uses the useless MPG gauge instead. So "water temp on oil" (speedo 7, tach 6) will turn the E60's MPG gauge into water temp gauge...
