Wait...do you know how to code or are you interested in learning as well? (getting me all excited) haha. I have one friend who just got a new f10 and we're looking to work on it soon.

"Digital Speed in MPH on Dash (BC)" would save me $1300 - only reason Im planning on ordering with HUD is that I can't see the top third of the speedo because of the steering-wheel rim. Same issue in my E350, but it has digital speed readout in dash as a standard user-selectable option.

@Clutchee I will be able to do the coding soon...
Buy if you have the background you can try it on your own too.

@DreamCar - sweet. I don't have any background on coding at all, just reading up on forums etc. However, my friend and I are working to build the cable this weekend and will attempt to learn how to code haha. By the way, is it possible to mess up the system? and what about warranty?

Also can someone PM the links to download the files necessary used to program? much appreciated.

**EDITED**

I am reading here that we need to purchase a "token" to use the e-sys?

FYI. "Always Remember Air Recirculating" has been added to the list.

Also, for MY 2012's. I believe the Automatic Start/Stop function can be coded to where it remembers and starts up in the state it was last in (e.g. off) when the engine was turned off. Since I have a MY 2011, I can not test it though; however, I have someone who will supposedly test it soon.

@clutchlee; Yes, E-Sys requires a valid token, along with ISTA/P psdzdata files totaling around 10 Gb. I believe you will soon see that all of what you need is readily available.

@Imothph; You do want the F10 HUD, trust me. If not for the HUD itself, but for the beautiful full black panel dashboard display that comes with it. That alone makes the HUD worthwhile.

As for speed, the dash BC readout is good, or you may want to consider an Escort Passport 9500ix, as besides the obvious benefit it brings as a high-end Radar Detector, it also has a configuration option to display your speed in MPH.

@DreamCar; Yeah, I figured disabling the Auto Start/Stop function would be quite popular, however, getting the M-HUD remains the Holy Grail.

DreamCar: yep, I will definitely support festers in DFW area. Been doing that for quite a while now.

Do you mind if I open up another thread in F01/F02 sub forum? F-series is a different kind of animal which does not share a lot of coding features with F10.

Thanks for igniting the potentials of our fester community.

@hchohan; You are welcome, but I am not sure that "ac automatically turning on" and ""Always Remember Air Recirculating" are one in the same?

I plan on ordering it anyway, for the reasons you mention but also because my luck is such that I'd get the only F10 with that particular coding option locked out by NASA, for Homeland Security reasons.

Still, I plan on building a cable and figuring out where to get a token for for E-SYS.

Still feel like Im missing something.....OH RIGHT!...better get the car first.

Thanks for doing this guys! Any chance there is a setting to remember the last EDC setting when the car is restarted?

Feel free to add me to the list of individuals willing to help. One of my BMW friends gave me a cable to use and I'll have the software shortly.

I used to do this type of thing on my VAG cars all the time using VCDS/VAG-COM and helped contribute to that software's development by doing some previously thought impossible things, like Euro-only feature retrofits.

Happy to help anybody locally.

@alextremo; I have been on the hunt for the EDC (Dynamic Drive Control) Code, but haven't found it. I'm still hunting, but it may not exists.

Wow, this is awesome news! Like someone else mentioned, I'm in IT as well, so I have crimpers and work with wiring from time to time. I'm also willing to be a guinea pig. If you guys are going to meet soon around the northern NJ area, I'm definitely game!

And to whomever was asking, get the HUD. It is well worth it. Once you go HUD, you won't go back.
