It's funny how they operate though. The heater power is applied for up to maybe 7 minutes after engine off sometimes just a minute.

Was by far the easiest way I could figure out to run the lights. No relay no wiring into the eBox etc.
The cool thing is that the Depos came with a relay and inline fuse so I had no worries about wiring into my ECU power in the eBox. I even used the grommet to get the wire into the box so moisture wouldn't come into play (though we don't get much out here in the desert...LOL). The ECU seems to power down after about 2 seconds from key to off position.

Front left brake caliper decided stuck on motorway while I was driving to work...



It was good that I had new seals and piston's for the calipers in hand.


So I replaced them and hopefully they work now.

Do they salt the roads there? That is some serious rust.

I did "repairs" to cracks in the wood of my console.

I posted a write up and photos here: https://xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-forums/...ml#post1210663

Finished installing the front stage of my stereo install, along with sound treatment of the doors. I am BLOWN away now with the Kappas. Only spent about 20 minutes with the DSP and the system rivals the B&O system in the wife's F15. It's unreal.

Had to order some of these clips before I could put everything back together. If, when you close your door, you have a loud clanking sound, this guy is the reason. Without it (or if it's broken) the metal part on the door card just bounces on the metal prong that is supposed to go through that clip and makes a horrible racket. Part number is 51418156532. After replacing that clip and the sound deadening, the doors close like bank vaults. Think brand new off the show room floor E39 sounding.

And when you pull the door card it always comes off the door card. Have to remove it from the door and put it on the door card otherwise you're trying to lower the card onto it blind.

Kappas are no joke! Been one of my favorites for many years now!
