Mein Auto: 2011 535i GT XDrive
Coding 2011 GT in Ontario

I own a 2011 535 xdrive GT. I would really prefer to be able to open and close the rear hatch using the button in the car (which currently only functions to pop open the small trunk). Would also be nice to have the option to close the hatch from key fob. Having seen some of the lists of options that can be coded i am sure there are many other things which would be nice to have. Has anyone in Ontario had coding done to a GT?

Also, is there an update to the stock navi interface? I find the colors and display tough to read esp at night or in bright light. Would be nice if the text and lines on map were bolder kind of like on a handheld gps like a tomtom or garmin.

I have the same GT as you do and also would love to tailor mine from the list of potential goodies via coding. I would especially like a speedometer in kms/hr (outside) and mi/hr (inside) which is opposite to BMWs sold in the US. I am not sure if that function is codable or related to the display itself. I would also pay to have it done, either directly or remotely.
