A must have for me would be the temp/pressure for the tires.

- Windows and sunroof close from remote
- close via ridges on door handles
- Trunk close from remote button and interior button
- Auto high beams always activated
- Opening doors will not interrupt auto window up
- High beams and fog lights can be on at the same time
- turn on the torque meter for your video screen
- Turn signal from 3 time to 5 times
- Fold mirrors automatically and from key fob.
- Transfer iPhone ringtones to car

Any "must do's" that I am missing?? (Disclaimer delete and DVD-in-motion already coded)
If you get "Turn signal from 3 time to 5 times", I'll be surprised.

Had my car coded today. Everything went very smooth. The only things that could not be done were the 3 to 5 time blinker lane change. He tried and I am now left with no automatic 3 time blinker flash from a pull on the stalk. He mentioned I may be able to enable this through iDrive. Will look around on the way home. Automatic high beams didn't work because I don't have this option.

Lastly, we did the torque meter thing but I can't seem to find where this will show up?? Anyone know anything about this?

No more ASS!

How does someone go about finding someone locally that does coding?

Needs, were you able to get your interior trunk button working again? I agree, this would be worst than not being able to close from remote.

Joe, did this happen to you? Great list, btw.

We specifically tested the trunk close button on the interior of the trunk. The coder was aware of some people having issues. Happy to say my trunk close button worked fine after coding. I found the blink three times under lights. It must have been set to off as a result of him trying to find the 3 to 5 string. I also found the HP/Torque meters (thanks Shawn!). The only thing we forgot to test ironically is the only thing that didn't work - the unlock all doors when engine is shut off. No biggie, I don't really ever lock my doors unless I am in a bad area of Boston. I looked under locks to see if there was a new menu item for this and found nothing.

This requires that under iDrive "Settings" => "Door Locks", both the "Unlock button" be set to either "Driver's Door" or "All Doors" and the "Lock after starting to drive" checkbox be checked.

Ahhh....I was actually wondering if this was the case but didn't try. I will check it out.
