Shocking misuse of the word "panzer"

Interesting ....but not for me.
Started watching the video and most of the start of it was focusing on the sound of the engine & exhaust - all I could think was that ain't going to be there with an electric motor....

Unfortunately this shite country has tax rates that make a car like this unviable in it's mid life

Don't get me wrong - technically I salute you.

Thanks for all the positive comments guys Just a small update. I located the "TD" rpm input signal on connector X20 pin 14 and injected a 100hz 12v square wave with the signal generator. With the key on the tacho jumped up to about 1400rpm so we can now use the stock tacho to indicate motor rpm using a bit of signal conditioning. In the bad news department I seem to have an LKM problem. The side lights remain illuminated at about 1/3 brightness even with the key off and fuses pulled. I'm guessing the LKM lamp sense resistors have burned out so will pull out the LKM at the weekend and investigate.

The LED light upgrade on the E39 is working out very well so will do the same on the Panzer

@Venom , thanks for the offer! I could have then recorded the sound and played it back over the stereo at full blast

So I pulled the LKM. Looking around ebay etc they seem to go for over e250 so I decided to have a look inside. The case was very warm to the touch even when removed from the car. Sure enough it looks like the filament sense resistors were cooked and the input bulk cap was totally dried out. I took the easy option and snipped out the sense resistors. I'll be running LED lamps anyway so they are redundant. Swaped out the input cap and refitted. Success! No more glowing parking lights Not totally fixed though as the pop up headlights still don't trigger on the switch and the foglights are non functional. Progress non the less!

If anyone has any info or circuit diagrams on the LKM please let me know.

Do you need to bridge resisters out when you remove them?

I just chopped them out to be honest. Doesn't seem to be setting an error. I'll probably do some more LKM work over the weekend and report back.
