question about coding . I been doing some extensive research

and have come to the conclusion that the dashsoft is the easiest and non intrusive way to code this vehicle. My question to you guys is this. Do you agree w me ? and is it as simple as it looks? The NCS expert/dummy way looks very complicated and work intensive. What do you guys think? Although it is expensive at 200$+ is it worth it? Can I really program the TV to work in the front without an outside module plugged in ? I have read that it is unnecessary to purchase an outside plug or module to enable a picture on the front screen. the piece actullay cost around 200$ so I figure that it would be worth going this route so as to not have to add any outside pieces that are not OEM and I could get other uses with it as far as programming and diagnosis and stuff.... This is what I was told to buy ... Can you guys help lead me in the right direction because I am taking in so much information that I am utterly confused and feel like my head is about to explode !!!!! Thanks again fellas !!!! You guys are #AWESOME in here !!!

Ncs expert is easier Imo.
with dashsoft you need to know the hexadecimal values to change... Ncs you change between values or nicht_aktiv to aktive or the other way around. Bmwcoding.com i think it is? Has everything most people want to change already explained and what values to change; Which is certainly undeniably easier than figuring out all the values you need to change or asking people for their trc files.

You think? Ok so what cable do you recommend for me? Ill order it right now. I'm prepping a laptop with windows 7 as we speak ... Might as well get over this fear. It's not like I'm technically inclined. I can build and program a pc with one eye shut lolol ...
