It may also require an FSC Code for AppID 131 (83) Imported and Activated.

You would have to get the code issued by BMW. and then it can be Imported and Activated using E-Sys.

Anyone know of a website that generates FSC codes BMW at a price cheaper than the official site? In BMW Spain the price is 320

thanks

The only FSC Code that can be generated is a Map Update FSC Code. All other FSC Codes must be issued by BMW, and signed with their private Encryption Key.

You can probably find a cheaper independent seller; however, they are still buying it from BMW AG at an expensive fixed price, and selling it with a small markup. There just isn't much margin to cut out on them.

My F34 does not come with Servotronic either. Apart from FSC and coding, any additional hardware is needed to enable it. I read the old models Exx would require an additional hardware attached to the steering box. Is it still the case in Fxx? thanks in advance for your reply.

Sorry. That I don't know, although I would imagine it does have additional or different hardware.

No I did not but I was assured that the BMW just needed a code.

once option 216 added, FSC imported and activated, will there be any display on dashboard to indicate the servotronic is activated?

wasn't the 216 HYDRO STEERING-SERVOTRONIC a standard option for F20?

the entry version of F34 deliberately cut this option out to keep a lower price.

apart from FSC check, how does it tell this option is now active? any additional instrument sign or just a lighter steering effort with a less road feel?

No visual indication that I know of.

What's the benefit of having servotronic enabled? Variable heaviness? I have an F30 320i and according to vin decoder I don't have 216.
Many people say that all F30s come with variable steering heaviness but I don't think I have this.

Anyone figure this out? Coding is all I need?

Shawn,
If I purchase the FSC codes, will they send me a file or just numbers? Can I use esys to inject the FSC codes?

Thanks

I don't know much about EPS.

On my F10, I have EPS. and there is an EPS Module in my SVT, which indicates hardware is needed.

My car does not have Option 216, nor an EPS FSC Code, presumably because EPS is standard on all F10's.

However, I know of these EPS FSC Codes:

EPS - SA216
AC Servotronic EPS X3 (F25) 00830001
AC Servotronic EPS 1 Series, 3 Series (E8x, E9x) 00840001

I have no idea how EPS is handled on an F30.

If an FSC Code is required, and you can actually get it, you can Import and Activate it with E-Sys. You still may need hardware though you do not have.
