Coding help in Seattle

I recently purchased a CPO 2014 BMW X1 xDrive35i. I want to turn off the iDrive bootup notification and rearview camera notification.
Anybody have a Carly for BMW in the Seattle area? These small changes just don't seem worth the $160 for Carly. But I'll gladly trade you a bottle of bourbon, gin, or spirit of your choosing.

Thanks,
James
Seattle, WA

Seattle, Capitol Hill near Volunteer Park. Happy to meet somewhere neutral or convenient. Definitely interested in learning what's required to do this right and then seeing what works to go buy cables and software myself.

Thanks,
James

If you are computer savvy in the slightest you should look into doing it yourself. There are amazing resources here that will help you all the way from which cable to buy ($12) to which software and guides showing every step. With the help I got here in the Coding Forum it took longer for Amazon to ship the cable to me than it did to figure out and complete the coding start to finish.

Looking through the coding forums, I figured it's going to cost me a lot less to buy the Carly app and dongle than buying a Windows PC and learning the ins and outs. I'm going to ask the dealer whether they'll code the one thing I want changed, and if not, then I'll go Carly.
