You might want to check this out after you get bids for coding. I have the lite app and the BT dongle and since they both work am about to get the paid app. Total of around $100 and if I am reading right, they'll help with the coding after that as a benefit of buying the app. I think... I have also seen lots of happiness in the thread.

Though, you might need something other than BT with '07 and I think that year may or may not be capable of coding through the app. I mean some can and some can't.

I'm an IT guy and ponder trying to do this myself? I guess all I need is an OBD USB cord and my laptop and some software.
Just nervous as I don't write any code in my current job and don't want to brick my system.

Coding is pretty safe and you can't really mess anything up. Flashing is what can get tricky and that's where you can start bricking modules etc

But with coding, you can use expert mode in NCS to default modules.

There's always a way to reverse coding. Flashing however, if you mess up in a certain way, the unit is bricked.

Props to Helix Motorsports in Roxborough! Stopped there today and they coded my car! They are awesome! The contact there sent me a code list via email and I was able to select what I wanted! Done in 20 minutes!
I'll be buying my Brake pads from them based from the awesome experience with them!
Thanks Helix!

Confirming for the investment below I did 30 or 40 code changes and can do as many as I want going forward for no more cost. Helix is probably great for people near it and for people who don't want to use an app but others should look up BMWhat app on Android and iOS by iviniapps.

Yes but mention the costs!
Wifi dongle if it works with your year then it's a cord purchase and the app is like $50

Dongle for most however my build is 3/07 which they say won't work with the wifi dongle so I would need a corded application.

Got it off eBay, elm 327. Granted, I can't code a couple ecu's with it, but it did most everything I wanted. The faster, newer dongle seems to be the vgate for 20-30$. Those are wifi, not Bluetooth.

There are bluetooth and wifi versions of vgate dongles.

However, bluetooth only works with android based phones. WiFi only works with iPhones
