Thanks!

It's not his coding, it's me finding the time!

From briefly pm'ing, I'd trust his work, but I'd like to learn to do it myself. I'm not saying that I wouldn't let him do it if I have to much trouble learning it though.

I've got to get a new laptop and then I'm going to learn some German for myself.

There is a saying that goes like this: "Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime!"

Re: Free coding in Madison, Chicago and Milwaukee area

Are there any issues that people have experienced when coding? Just want to make sure there's no harm or domino effect to electrical system/computer.

I have done many and not a single issue by coding. If you know what you are doing then you will be fine.

Re: Free coding in Madison, Chicago and Milwaukee area

I notice there's a coding feature of having the side view mirrors fold in once the car is locked or off. This feature is available on a 2007 650i? I didn't know these side view mirrors had motors to this.

I think, this is doable for your model as long as you have folding mirrors.

Free coding in Madison, Chicago and Milwaukee area

Got coding done by Ram at a mini event in Skokie a few months back... Couldn't be happier with the results!! Folding mirrors,close windows and sunroof with fob,real speed on dash,lock doors after 6mph. One touch window close with doors open on e90 335... Once again thanks Ram. Great work!

You don't have to recode when you change battery.

I availed ICUC's services to Program the DRL in my car. ICUC worked with me Remotely to get the DRLs to start working. For some odd reason, after several attempts at modifying the DRL Settings, the lights would not turn on. ICUC worked with my car very patiently and after a combination of several options, he finally got the lights to work.

I would like to mention that he called me from States (to Canada), at no cost! He was very patient when the Wifi Signal dropped a couple of times as I was working on my Driveway and not once did he sound frustrated.

Overall: I would highly recommend him to have your coding setup and coding done remotely. Furthermore, he gives you the best bang for the buck!! Very impressed with his BMW Coding know-how.

Just got coded by Ram (ICUC).

Very professional, efficient, and he validated all options that we modified.

Even looked up additional information for a last minute request that I made.

Everything works perfectly.

Highly recommended!!

Joe
