Motronic 079 and 059 Differences

Post by robertodonnell »

Hi team,

I have an S38b35 converted M535i, but it seems that the "converter" used the M535i ECU.

I have an 059 ECU, instead of what I believe should be an 079? Anyway, the car runs pretty good, and I wouldn't have known except that I pulled the ECU to amuse myself.

Does anyone know what the actual differences of the 2 systems are? I don't know if the 059 loom was cut and shut to fit the S38, or the S38 loom was cut and shut to fit the 079.

Should I be sourcing an 079?

Cheers,

Robert
