Mein Auto: Z4 M Coupe 6LL93033
Z4 M Coupe car/key memory

Stopped by my dealer today in respect to coding the CD changer and phone docking cradle. Since both items work fine he recommended to leave it alone. I agreed.

We went on to do car/key memory. They tried to do car key memory when I took delivery of the car (part of PDI) but the system would not connect to the car. This was a M Coupe thing and they fixed it with version 22.
When he initially connected it said to use EDIC.
He was not familar with that and changed the head and it came up fine.
Basically the same as the following pics plus it showed the three flash lane change option.
I asked him to print the list and he said can't be done. He did print out the changes.
Some of the things mentioned in the list didn't make sense to me or him.
I basically had him do the following.

DRL which lights the inside halos.

One momentary turn signal touch = turn signal lane change three flashs.
I prefer the -Firestone five flash.

Lock after unlock without open. Have no idea what that does and neither does he.
I assume that it will relock the car if unlocked without opening the door. Haven't tried it yet.

Automatic door lock when driving off when you reach ~15 MPH.
I prefer the -Firestone method which locked on start and also at some speed.
On the list.

I also asked him to activate alarm but he said that it was already activated. I tried this long ago but no flash. Turns out that it doesn't flash until 1 minute 11 seconds go by.

Easy mods.

Just tried it. If you lock the car and then unlock it without opening a door it will lock again on its own after two minutes.

And the alarm does NOT reactivate. I've had this option set on all my BMWs. It's nice if you accidentally hit the remote unlock button by mistake (in your pocket)..too bad the alarm does not reset.
For the auto locking after driving off, I find mine does it at around 5 mph.

Is the Firestone controller you are referring to the same as the sport mode controller or is it a separate module? The one you are describing is for the Z3 M Coupe correct?

VW defaults this feature to on and it is programmable on all Mk4 and newer cars. I have grown to like it.
