I'd sense that you would start another thread dedicated to "group buy of E-sys token"?

Official F10 Coding thread---Exploring Your F10

Dreamcar,

Thanks for putting this thread together so we can compile all the coding information into one area.

I put togther a "Coding Information Links" pdf for forum members to use until we can pull all the information togther into this thread. Use it for now to get an idea of what you're going to need to get started coding your F-10. I think I speak for many of us (Dreamcar, shawnsheridan) that we would prefer to teach you how to do it, so as new modules are located you can just go to your garage, fire up the laptop and code to your hearts content. It seems daunting, but it really isn't. As an example, I know a person that was quite apprehensive about coding, now he won't stop locating modules...I don't have to mention any names (he's the one with the huge coding list).

Dreamcar, if you would like to throw the pdf into the first post, please feel free to do so, it belongs to the forum now...do with it as you please.

Now, I'm not going to claim as many states as Dreamcar, but I have Dayton, OH and the surrounding area covered if you really don't want to do this yourself. There's no charge for coding, but you will have to come to me.

I'm also willing to walk you through your cable build if you need the help. The network cable crimper is probably the most specialized tool you will need.

Sean

I believe Shawn also has closing trunk from remote and inside button as well as sunroof close from CA / fob.

As for this thread - love it! When I get back home I'm going to get my laptop setup to rock and roll. Hopefully my cable is being built soon! :thumb up:

If I get familiar enough with the software, I will be sure to help out fellow 'festers do this on their cars. I'm hoping that once I get the package together it will only take a couple of weeks.

• Disable Driver and Passenger Dashboard Seat Status Displays
• Disable Front and Rear Window Disruption - (keep closing when door is opened)
• Unlock Doors on Single Push of Start/Stop Button (allows single pull of door handle to exit)
• Enable Efficient Dynamic Sport CID (Power & Torque Meters)
• Fog Lights Stay On with High Beams / Flash to Pass
• Enable Welcome Lights (Fog lights, License Plate Lights, Taillights, Position Lights (Front Side LED's), Low Beams, High Beams)
• Welcome Light Activation time
• Follow Me Home Activation time
• Enable VIM (Video-In-Motion)

Is E-sys on torrent? No usenet access I can put it on torrent if someone can get it to me. I can also remove the p/w from the PDF(s) if that's desired.

Re: the summary PDF - could you add a version # or something to it so we can track?

Awesome work all! Thanks!

Richard,
Instead of maintaining different version let us have only the latest version... and i think it is too early to baseline them!
What you think

For the "Close Trunk from FOB", do you need to have the convenience package? I unfortunately don't have that. I'm guessing you need to have the package, but hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

Yes, you would need the power trunk.

I'm as anxious as the rest of you to getting started on this. My whole wish list of changes has already been exposed...good work guys. I'm on the road this week but expect to get at it next week when I'm back at my normal office (I already have e-sys, just waiting to the cable).

BTW Should this thread not be moved to the DIY section?

NO we want this to be completely in reach to all the festers this is the better way... DIY has very less exposure!

Thanks Decaf and the "Admin" We just made it to Sticky!..
