5AP Decoding for no-dazzle hgh bm

I found this on manifest for my 2015 bmw 550i xdrive.

From what I gather, it seems like people have coded this to reverse it being disabled from the factory.

1) What's the best thread to read for that
2) What exactly is the benefit of re-enabling this? IS there a before/after video someone can point me to?

have you check the coding forum?

Some places that do remote coding don't re-code this feature. Others say they will, but it is NOT exactly perfect.

I had my adaptive LED system re-coded by an outfit in Southern Calif. (I am in KY) and I have been very pleased with the results. I really made a very noticeable difference.

The advantage is that they work like this:

On the highway you very, very rarely ever have to "dim" your lights . . . Mine was coded to be in adaptive/automatic mode when the lights came on; didn't need to even push the little button.

This is beautiful - sent you a PM.

I'm scouring the coding forums for more info, but having difficulty narrowing in.

You will need a laptop with an internet connection and the proper software installed-- and a suitable cable to connect the laptop to the car. The cables a not expensive and the software can be had for a no-cost download. Connection often will be thru "TeamViewer" --this software is available for individual use at no charge.

The person doing the coding will connect to your laptop and take control-- he will be on the phone with you at the same time. You will need to start/stop car and check some things as the coding process progresses. Usually takes 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour (if doing the lights).
