Would you know which values should be changed for these? I would like to turn those yellow front parking lights off for legal purposes. Now I have my own signal conversion in place but would use built in features.

And the remote close feature would be great as I leave my roof and windows often open when hot. Then in the evening it would be handy to close them from inside the house, not walk to the car.

Also generally about coding the X3, I did not know it is possible... How tricky is it? I already have and ODBII cable. Does it have to be some specific cable or will any generic cable work? Is there a place I can go to and get more information how to do it? A list of ECU modules and options in them would be great! I have looked into VAG coding for our VW and that is really simple to do.
