That is a pretty comprehensive coding list. Do all of these work? Some of those you list are ones I thought were not yet figured out or were only partially working.

Very nice and your setup is pretty much exactly how I'd set mine up if I got one.

I go back and forth on the roof-wrap on the F10 as I'm iffy on how it looks on the particular car based on what I've seen so far. Can you post more pics of it?

Also, which black grille did you get, and is it matte or gloss?

Got a pair of black gloss grills from the BMW dealer, he matched the $115 price online. ($165 normal)

Coding cable plus USB drive from April1, just PM him for details

All codes listed work 100%, took a good few hours to learn the system.


Thanks for the complements.

Thank you! Just out of curiosity for the 73% residual you get 12k miles, for 15k would be 72%?

If they still have the special going-

71%= 15k
73%= 12k
74%= 10k

Hope this helps...

Hot damn! Looks insane! I love the roof and grille.

If I get one mine will probably look exactly like yours, except I've been leaning toward going the matte black route on the grille. Although I think matte black slats with a gloss ring would be ideal (or odd, perhaps).

I've been checking everywhere around my area for leftover 24-month Lease deals and it seems everyone is long out. Sucks as that deal was just stupid good.

Incredible deal. I live in Houston and the best residual at any dealer here is 66% for 2 years/10K miles. I wonder if they don't know about this special lease rate??

Also, it seems like everyone on this forum buying BMW's this month are getting the $750 Owner Loyalty and $500 Ultimate Drive App rebates. I have owned 6 BMW's (all leased with BMWFS), but it has been 2 years since my last lease. The dealers in Houston are telling me that you have to be a current BMW customer to qualify for the Loyalty rebate and the Ultimate Drive App only works if you financed/leased with BMWFS within the last 12 months. Is this correct? Thanks and I really appreciate your help.

My CA recently told me that I was eligible for loyalty and ultimate drive rebate, and I financed my previous car 2 years ago, so im not sure if "within the last 12 months" is accurate. I wound up not doing bmwfs since rates at other banks were much lower though.

The 24 months special is apparently for West coast and Fl (?). Not clear if other East coast states have it either. Each dealer only have a limited number of those 24 months lease available (someone mentioned 20). I tried to work with a forum sponsor and he is out of those lease. I think what you dealer told you about the royalty rebate is right. The app credit tie to the BMWFS account. So if your account is active, you can still get it.. All you need to do is try the app and when the app try to find you account, you will find out if it is available to you.
