Give your dealer a call. If they can't/don't want to you are SOL even if it is possible.

don't need translation..

it only explain the functions of the board computer....

function as:

time
outside temperature
fuel range
consumpion ratio
average speed

if you have a navi-tv system it will also show you the distance

for example:

" take the next road on the left in 500 mt."... the display starts show the remaining distance---> 500-450-400-...........50-40-30-20-10;)

Guys:

Listen to me.... i went to my dealer today and i posed the questions about installing the obc on a bmw that doesnt have one.. and the answer is ' YES".. these are the parts needed, at least these are the parts I need....



Part #

65816905133 Temp Sensor
61138365340 Plug housing
61318363668 Signal stalk


They said it will take about 2.5 hours in labor, they also said they have to call tech to get the programming codes.


Now this info aplies to my 02 325i.. not sure about the rest

email me or Im me if you have any more questions

The whole process should run me around 400 buks.

but >>>>>>>>>>

but our cars allready have the tempeture sensor

if you go to hidden OBC functions you can see all the stuff that OBC will display by pushing a button

Look in your fuse box and see if you have a fuse for OBC if you do theen it should be no brainer just install the Signal stalk and probably tell the computer to display the info on dashboard

Correct me if I am wrong !!!

or better :

Someone from Germany should go to a dealership and ask them, so we can compare the prices and needed parts

I'm giving the translation a try right now... Here goes....

2. Onboard Computer

The onboard computer gives you information, for example average fuel consumption, average speed, outside-temperature, time, and date.

Weg = "way", Fahr = Drive, not sure on Sperre...

The BMW (mehrfach means literally "More subject") MehrfachSperre is as a seperate system (attainable?). The use suceeds through the distance-key-system (key-remote) or an electronic key.

I can read the third paragraph clearly, but it only pertains to the alarm, not the computer. I'm not entirle sure the second paragraph pertains to the computer either.... Man, 4 or 5 years ago I would read through that without missing a word. My german has gone seriously downhill.....

All E46 BMWs equipped with air-conditioning will have the temperature sensor, regardless whether you have the OBC function.

Trannslation:

2 (Number of the picture in the catalog) OBC

The OBC gives you information about the average fuel consumption, average speed, range with remaining fuel, outside temperature, time and date.

The next paragraph is only about the alarm.

If you have a car with automatic climate control you don't need the temperature sensor AFAIK.

Damn, you guys really slaughtered that translation.

"1. Park Distance Control:
Makes parking and maneuvering easier. Objects within 1.5 meter range are regogized and the driver is alerted to their presence via an audible signal"

"2. Bordcomputer:
The bordcomputer provides information on average speed, average fuel consumption, etc."

"3. Theft Prevention (Drive-off Prevention system)
The theft prevention system is available as a seperate aftermarket system. It is operate via a remote control, or an electronic key."

Hope that helps.

Let me know what they did the programming using MODIC and who they called so I can relay the info to the dealership here in how to made the new stalk work.
