///M Cruise Control - Myths & Legends Busted - DIY HOW TO!!

Post by dgm » Mon May 15, 2017 3:25 pm

Just fitted mine, excellent instructions on this thread and others. Thank you to srhutch for working this out for the M, I've been considering paying someone to do this since I got the car 10 years ago.

I can't add anything to the instructions but one potential pitfall is when removing the two LCM connector blocks from their holder to check the pin numbers before cutting the wires. I test fitted them without reinserting them in their holder after I'd wired everything up and the bulb warning light came on. After wasting a lot of time checking and double checking my connections, I discovered that I'd bent a couple of pins within the LCM when I test fitted the block. Once they were straightened out everything worked perfectly.

My parts were purchased from Sopers who were first class.
06 Z4MC, Sapphire black, Aero sideskirts, BMW strutbrace, CSL's, Intravee and Alpine DAB

Yeehar!!

Yep I'm up and away - what a useful bit of kit :D :D

Many thanks to all involved but especially hutch - I took along your posts and photos and was told afterwards it was a straightforward job - magic :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

This is going to be so useful on long transits to fabulous roads - first you've got to get there! :lol: :thumbsup:

Absolutely - as someone's already said, essential for restricted roads and long transits to those 'special' roads.

Must say the Forum been brilliant in helping me get this sorted and hutch couldn't have been more supportive (useful meeting him at Duxford) - even offered to talk to my 'specialist' - how great is that :thumbsup:
