I find it absolutely amazing that people are willing to download software from unknown sources and use that to modify their cars. The Audi community has Ross-Tech and their VCDS software. Is there anything like this for the BMW world? I wish there were an easy solution. I'd be willing to pay for it. I had my X5 coded by someone but my dealer erased all that when I had my trailer hitch installed. I've spent all morning reading the bmwcoding stuff on several forums and its just not straight forward like the VCDS. Lots of google is your friend and download this and that from this torrent site, etc.

OK. Flame suit on. I know there are people who are much better at this stuff than I am and go ahead and tell me its easy etc, but not for me. I'm not comfortable doing this stuff the way it is being done currently.
