Just had my car coded- something you should consider.

Ok, so I've had my car for a month now, and have put about 2k miles on it. I figured it was about time to get rid of the minor annoyances that come with the 6. So I met up with Steven (CN555IC) in Brooklyn today and in 1/2 hour he hooked me up with:
-start stop set to last setting
-electronics off when car is turned off and door is opened.
-passenger side view mirror tilts down better in reverse.
-Turn signals show in HUD.
-Mirrors flip up when doors locked with key.
- No more seat belt bell.
- No more I drive warning.
- heat/ac set to last setting on restart.
- DVD works when moving.
- tire pressure sensors show temp of tires and individual pressure.
-rear drl
- Also the top goes down quicker.

Individually not one is a big deal, but all in all a Sunday well spent.

Congrats on your coding, a day well spent. I would like to do those types of coding upgrades as well.

Par4,

I am guessing you mean the the mirrors fold when the doors are locked? And what does the climate control default to without coding on a restart? I would think it would be last used settings.

Did he code entertainment/phone list in HUD? I really like having that in the hud, never have to look down.

BTW if anyone is in Texas and wants to stop by Austin, I would be more than happy to help you code.

That is pretty sweet. Where can I get that done at? Will the dealership do that? If not does anyone in SoCal know how?

Got to head over to the 3'er and 5"er board and find some local coders.

A fellow fester, DreamCar, coded my 550 with many of the same options. I have the software and the cable, so I'll take a crack at it after my car is redelivered. I was really hoping to remove the speed limiter while in Germany, but none of the fest's coders have had any luck thus far.

I used Alex from AlpineMSS for both my 7 & 6 and he did a great job! You can email him;
alex@alpinemss.com or check out his website at www.alpinemss.com

Here's a list of what he can do for you and the best thing is you just have to have a WiFi connection, PC computer, and some files as well as connecting cable to car that are included in his price... He's located in California but can code your car in your driveway:

-Removal Of Seat Belt Chimes
-Removal Of Seat Belt Warnings
-Windows up/down with key
-Windows up/down with comfort access (Comfort Access Required)
-Folding Mirrors with key
-Folding Mirrors with comfort access
-Unlock doors when engine is turned off (Single pull on door handle)
-Removal of CIC Accept Warning (faster boot up after removal)
-Activate DVDinMotion (Play Videos on the go and stopped)
-Removal of camera warnings (requires cameras)
-Add Fuel Stop Proposals
-Remove window safety feature (windows will not stop rolling if door is opened)
-Remove Amber Side Marker Lights in headlights (Euro look)
-Fogs on with High Beams (Fog Lights will not turn off when high beams or used)
-Fog Lights on when car is unlocked
-Open and "close" trunk with key and inside trunk release button (requires power lift-gate)
-Add Digital Speed in Center Cluster
-Auto stop feature off when car is turned on
-Auto Climate Control off when car is turned on
-Digital Number Display For Tire Pressure Monitor with Temperature
-Remove speed limitation on camera's so they can be turned on at any time

Some of the features are dependent on the car options and type... obviously you can't open/close trunk unless it's motorized! Also the tire Pressure/Temp is hit or miss depending on the manufacture date of the vehicle (Doesn't work on my 7 built 11/11 but does on the 6 built 2/12)

Good luck!!!

Does anyone know any references that explain how to do this yourself or know anyone near Baltimore, MD that does this? Also, is the the same between the coupe and gran coupe? Thanks.

Anyone coding for my E89 2009 Z4 in the Boston market.?
The Z seems more obscure for the coding community. Any help is appreciated.

This is a great list of features that can be coded. I would add a couple more that can be coded:
1. Decrease sensitivity of the auto headlight function so that you don't drive with headlights on during the day when the sun is low (winter months). Stock setting keeps the headlights on too often during the day.
2. Activate sport gauges showing real time horsepower and torque.
3. Add telephone, turn signals and infotainment features to heads up display (if your car has HUD).

Mein Auto: 640ix
Just had my F12 640ix coded last night by Octopump in NJ. Added most of the features that are left out including my favs, such as the tire pressure readout, remote mirror fold, //M splash screen on start up. Octo did a great seamless and careful job. Absolutey recommend him if you are in the NY/NJ area. He can even do it remotely. having fun with the car so far but being gentle with only 400 miles on it.
