Finally got around to playing with car coding

Picked up an INPA USB cable and made a windows xp virtual machine on my Macbook to play with NCS Expert.

I have now coded the following:

Windows up with key fob!
Fog lights with high beams possible!
"Double blink" euro style hazard lights!
Power windows operate for 1 minute after car is shut off and key removed
Double-click required on fob to open the trunk (My keyring sometimes presses the trunk open button while I'm at home... resulting in me discovering the trunk is open when I leave for work..).

There are lots of DIYs and links out there so I am not going to repeat it all. If anyone is in the SF Bay Area and wants some of these options I could be talked into it for a 6 pack .
