No harm in disconnecting battery but you will need to have you ecu reprogrammed and then a full diagnostic done again.
I don't mean to hijack this thread but would you know if I would need to reprogram my ecu on an e39 m5? I'm storing it over winter and pulled the battery. Thanks.

bmw have said that there is no issue with the rom/ram?
find this a lil weird because of the lack of an EMLight

the x is running alot better since the injector change, but we are yet too see if this will last or if it will return.

ON A SEPERATE idea

i seen one of the ibus interfaces, and read another post last night, sounds interesting so may order one of them

Very weird that!How are you suppose to know if you have a problem if your EML doesnt light up!Was it this dealer that diagnosed the car earlier and got codes P1613(ecu ram error) and P1640(EML not coming on)?

Do I recommend gearbox oil change at 100k?From a professional point of view,I would have to go with the dealer service schedules and say NO!
However,this is a subject that has been discussed here a number of times and there are arguments fro changing it or leaving it alone,although,I believe most are changing it.
Personally ,I will be changing the gearbox oil, but not as early as 100k!I will do it around 150k!
