I need to find out how I can re-code the car.

That may very well be the case as BMW puts the build date of 03/05 as the start of MP3 capabilities. How do you like the Dension Unit? Is it fast and responsive or is it dreadfully slow? I've been wanting to get it for a while but no one here has posted really how well it works.
