Warranty and coding

Hello,

This may seem like a dumb question but does coding void the warranty? There are a few things I would like to do but not sure if it would void the warranty or not.

Thanks!

No.

All you are doing is accessing options that are already a part of the ECUs.

Now.... if you go into Expert mode and screw coding up.... an ECU replacement is out of your pocket.

Thanks for the reply. That is what I thought but I wanted to try and get a solid answer/peoples experiences with this. I definitely wouldn't go into expert mode and do anything crazy, but wanted to check if for example I want to make my mirrors fold in upon locking, it wouldn't void the warranty.

Esys and BIMMERCODE are 2 good choices.

If you have COMFORT ACCESS... you can code mirror fold via key fob and/or touch on drivers door.
