Coding the 6

Just curious as I look a the features I would code on the 650. Nothing crazy- just mirror fold with locking/PSI for the TPMS/turn signal in HUD. Anybody do any coding ?

My phone won't let me copy the link but go to "Forums" > "Best of Bimmerfest" > "BMW Coding and Programming"

Ask around in there if someone does coding in your area.

I would love to get rid of the "nanny" screens on start up and rear view camera. I would also like the PSI for tires.

I know Thom.one.two had some coding done in his area in Texas by the pros in the Coding forum.

Upsetting that the HP/Torque sport displays don't work with the N63 engine. I would love that option. Thom said he had that done but they aren't functional with the 650 or 550.

True dat...

I did: flip mirrors on door/remote, turn on lights w remote, close top, no disclaimers, DVD in motion (never actually used, just tested), no gong, blinkers on HUD and more stuff that I forgot
Could not make it work: SLI , M HUD , some emergency braking based on the windshield camera (not active cruise) that came out this year

Check the link above for lengthy discussions about all of it

John,

Did you do the coding when Thom did? If not do you have someone in Houston who does coding?

Thanks

Not particularly difficult, but there are several steps to be followed. The difficult part is getting to download the software and build/buy the cable

After that its pretty straight forward, several DIY guides on the forum..,
