Ok, cool, thanks for confirming opasha. This gives me hope that I can get this working after all. I'm going to give this a try in the next week or two.

Thanks again!! :thumbup:

@opasha-

Do you have the Lighting package on your F15?? From the pix, it doesn't look like you do (those look like the xenon headlamps), but I cannot tell for sure. If you DON'T, can you share...

Thanks Opasha, I've been searching for a solution to this for months, and have yet to come across a single confirmed F15 without the Lighting package that has gotten this enabled. Not sure if that's...

Definitely post on the rear DRLs. I tried to get that coded, but it seems that you have to have the LED lighting package to get it to work. I would really like to get that working if possible, so...

Really ridiculous comment. Improved mileage to me had almost nothing to do with cost. I simply don't want to be burning more non-renewable energy sources than I need to. I love performance, but not...

Yes, you can still recline them with them all the way back. It isn't a huge amount of recline, but better than nothing.

I have comfort rear seats. They don't push back any further than standard, they allow you to move them forward a few inches and you get some recline options. We got it so that our 6yo son can have...

This requires either the LED lighting package and the coding changes or a HW change (for F15s without the LED package) and coding. We tried coding my F15 (without LED pkg) and it didn't do anything....

+1

I don't think they give more rear seat legroom, just the option to get more room in the cargo area by sliding forward. In order to give more legroom, the area behind the second row seats would...

If you enter into a 2-year lease right now, chances are your lease would end at least a few months before the updated F15 is available, possibly more like a year. But with BMW, no guarantees on any...

BMW typically updates each model on a 7 year interval. So the F15 will likely run until MY 2021.

In addition to the full model update, they do what is called an LCI, or "LifeCycle Impulse," which...

I'm loving the direction BMW is going with the tail lamps and kidney grills here. I wonder if I'll be able to get some of those protruding round tail lamps for my X5 from an aftermarket vendor?
