I'd sense that you would start another thread dedicated to "group buy of E-sys token"?

DreamCar 05-09-2012 05:52 AM

May be we don't have to...

scuzzlebutt 05-09-2012 06:39 AM

I volunteer my '12 550i xDrive. PM me with what I need to get, i'm in the IT Networking field and have an degree in programming so I can handle anything you throw at me.

DreamCar 05-09-2012 06:42 AM

Hey volunteers are the ones who are willing to help other festers ... Not the test cars :D

Thanks for putting this thread together so we can compile all the coding information into one area.

I put togther a "Coding Information Links" pdf for forum members to use until we can pull all the information togther into this thread. Use it for now to get an idea of what you're going to need to get started coding your F-10. I think I speak for many of us (Dreamcar, shawnsheridan) that we would prefer to teach you how to do it, so as new modules are located you can just go to your garage, fire up the laptop and code to your hearts content. It seems daunting, but it really isn't. As an example, I know a person that was quite apprehensive about coding, now he won't stop locating modules...I don't have to mention any names (he's the one with the huge coding list).

Dreamcar, if you would like to throw the pdf into the first post, please feel free to do so, it belongs to the forum with it as you please.

Now, I'm not going to claim as many states as Dreamcar, but I have Dayton, OH and the surrounding area covered if you really don't want to do this yourself. There's no charge for coding, but you will have to come to me.

I'm also willing to walk you through your cable build if you need the help. The network cable crimper is probably the most specialized tool you will need.


Needsdecaf 05-09-2012 08:06 AM

I believe Shawn also has closing trunk from remote and inside button as well as sunroof close from CA / fob.

As for this thread - love it! When I get back home I'm going to get my laptop setup to rock and roll. Hopefully my cable is being built soon! :thumb up:

If I get familiar enough with the software, I will be sure to help out fellow 'festers do this on their cars. I'm hoping that once I get the package together it will only take a couple of weeks.

shawnsheridan 05-09-2012 08:07 AM

Is E-sys on torrent? No usenet access :( I can put it on torrent if someone can get it to me. I can also remove the p/w from the PDF(s) if that's desired.

Re: the summary PDF - could you add a version # or something to it so we can track?

Awesome work all! Thanks!

DreamCar 05-09-2012 08:42 AM

Instead of maintaining different version let us have only the latest version... and i think it is too early to baseline them!
What you think :)

shawnsheridan 05-09-2012 08:52 AM

@rlsolomon; PM Sent. I guess we will be seeing a Torrent soon...:grouphug:

RambleJ 05-09-2012 09:02 AM

Wow, that sounds amazing. The one that i am really interesting in the the Dynamic Sport CID. Only if you weren't 4 hours away. Anyone able to do this in the DFW area?

DreamCar 05-09-2012 09:08 AM

Guys Please kindly dont use "Reply with Quote" please use Reply/Quick Reply and if you want to address to any member just use his ID....

Just want to keep the thread clean to make it easy for the new members to go through it. :D Just in case if this becomes Sticky!!!

Needsdecaf 05-09-2012 09:50 AM

I have sent a message to the admins requesting this be stickied.

RajG 05-09-2012 10:49 AM

For the "Close Trunk from FOB", do you need to have the convenience package? I unfortunately don't have that. I'm guessing you need to have the package, but hoping to be pleasantly surprised.


hd750Li 05-09-2012 10:49 AM

shawn or sean, can you please pm me the files? I will upload to rapidshare and few more sources. Thanks.

I've been so itching to code my F02.

Yes, you would need the power trunk.

RajG 05-09-2012 10:57 AM

Dang it, not surprised. Thanks for the response.

DreamCar 05-09-2012 10:58 AM


Dont be disappointed there are many other interesting tweaks! Hope you read the list from Shawn!

clutchlee 05-09-2012 11:18 AM

Dude, this is amazing. Is there anyone in the NY/Tri-state area that can do this? If not then my friend and I are going to attempt to be the first. haha

DreamCar 05-09-2012 11:32 AM

Clutchee I am in NJ We can plan a meet and see if we have couple more guys!

Sharbotcom 05-09-2012 11:33 AM

I'm as anxious as the rest of you to getting started on this. My whole wish list of changes has already been exposed...good work guys. I'm on the road this week but expect to get at it next week when I'm back at my normal office (I already have e-sys, just waiting to the cable).

BTW Should this thread not be moved to the DIY section?

DreamCar 05-09-2012 11:36 AM

NO we want this to be completely in reach to all the festers this is the better way... DIY has very less exposure!

Thanks Decaf and the "Admin" We just made it to Sticky!..
