Well, the machined finish of the 336's (and other machined wheels) gets corroded after a few years, so perhaps you made the best move - paint won't corrode, so I think you are in better shape IMHO....

Katie,

You need to find someone who can program the module for you using SSS Progman (it's the programming system this series car uses).

You also need the proper cable to do it too.

You can't use 'torque program' on your phone to delete it. Best to have your repair guy clear the code on your car.

Did you reset the code with your phone after you swapped the coil? It will go away after a week or so if you didn't, but always reset the car and erase codes after repairing the issue.

Sounds like the mechanism is bad. Head to the dealer and they can swap it out. Stop in so you can show them what its doing, and perhaps they can order the part ahead of time.

Can you adjust the LED lights to bring the beam up a bit? its a nice technology but agree that LED vs Xenon benefits might not be as obvious.

I have a number of cars from the BMW lineup - a e39 M5 with 15k on it (the baby), a E53 X5, a E71 X6. I have also had good seat time in a F10.
