  1. BMW i3 I01 (2014 - 2020)
    I have now owned a 2018 BMW i3 94aH battery REX for two years. I drive over 30K miles a year and have loved the driving experiance of my BMW and now want to make the machine more my own. I used the wireless OBDII connection and Bimmercode app to unlock Hold state of Charge and disable the elec...
  2. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    2106 BMW X5. Id there any way to have sport mode as the default mode rather than having to set sport mode after each restart?
  3. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Recently I noticed that I cannot push the lever to the left and engage DS or Manual mode anymore. It feels pretty firm so I'm not trying to force it. However, I noticed it's not consistent. Last week I took a 30min drive down to the coastal area and on the way back, the DS came back and...
  4. F07 Gran Turismo (2010 - 2017)
    Hi fellow members, I wondered if someone more knowledgeable than me may be able to advise me... I have already attempted to search this topic but couldn't find anything that addresses my specific problem. I have had my GT for just over a year... 90% of the time I use the car to drive around...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Since I always drive with this on, yesterday I decided to drive without it, and wow it felt like I was driving a bus and acceleration felt like crap... so im wondering is there a way to start the car and have this auto turned on, without have to push my little red button.... ? I was thinking...
  6. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    :mad::cry:My D/S mode wont engage can't maually shift and lights don't come on is there a wire or fuse I can fix. Is this a DYI fix or do I need to take it to the Stealership!!:rofl:
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Honest, I searched if there is a thread already on this topic, and can't find one, so if there is please direct me. Otherwise, I'm wanting some experienced thoughts. My 2014 328i xDrive Sport Line has the typical ECO PRO, Comfort, Sport and Sport+ options as a toggle button next to the gear...
  8. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Can anyone tell me the difference between comfort mode and normal mode, in terms of fuel efficiency, on a 2012 650i? I know that the other modes, SPORT and SPORT+ do a number on the already bad mileage, but I would like to know the difference between comfort and normal mode :)
  9. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hi, im trying to find a link between my sport mode button (and my seat heater and Parking assistant buttons) not working and my tilt steering to suddenly stop. Is this just another Idrive bug again?
  10. E60 M5 (2006 - 2010)
    M mode EDC set in sport mode makes the car bounce more than comfort mode or when the car is driven without M mode. Tried test driving in M mode EDC in comfort and it bounces less than in sport, which should be a tighter suspension setting. Can anyone help, is this a computer control or...
  11. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi Everyone, First post and first BMW (2014 335i Msport). First, love the car, especially the sport mode, which leads me to a few newbie questions (forgive me if already answered in another thread). 1. I like to be able to drive with the stiff suspension of sport mode but not have the high...
  12. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hey I was wondering if it would be possible to code Sport Mode into my non-Sport 535i? I'm very new to this (I just got a 2011 535i for Christmas) and don't know it it would be possible. I know it's possible, but I DONT want to install the DEC Switch as well! It would be ideal if I could change...
  13. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    So I wanted to experiment, and combine BMW's sport mode, with the pedalbox's sport+ mode, and obviously +Dinan Stage 5. The result gave me a drivegasm! The car became super loud as M6 and very fast as a rocket! Of course I videotaped it! I got 2 videos for you, full video of my engine sound, and...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I saw a video on youtube for E60 Sport Mode. I have a 528i and bought the electrical pins and a momentary switch online. For 15 bucks if it works it could be pretty cool. Anyone else done this to their 5 series?
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Help! Hello everyone, I was driving to work today in sport mode and suddenly the car only works in D mode. Even if the shift selector is on the left side, the car will not enter sport or shift mode!! Drives perfect in D mode. Any ideas on what can cause this or how to repair? $$?
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So the 2010 328i I'm getting ready to buy has an automatic transmission. These may seem like simple questions, but I reviewed the BMW website and can't definitively find the answers. Here goes: 1) Is the standard automatic transmission = Steptronic? Or is Steptonic an upgrade over the...
  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi folks. First time poster here, hoping I might be able to get some good feedback. Issue: Put car into sport mode (DS), it stays in Drive (D). Shift the the knob down to go from what would have been DS to Manual (M), it stays in D. Shift the know up to go from what would have been DS to M...
  18. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Want to get closer to making your car-racing daydream more of a reality behind your own wheel? BMW just made that possible by launching this new super grippy Alcantra-wrapped performance steering wheel for its M-series. Highlighted by carbon trim and a race display, it was tested by German...
  19. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hey folks, Great board here. In the last week I've managed to install an Aux Input to the factory headunit and reset my passenger window for one-touch open/close, all through the help of this board! I purchased my 05 Z4 3.0i last week and had a question regarding the Sport button. Is there...
  20. E89 Z4 (2009 - current)
    I was wondering if there was a way to keep the car in sport mode all the time without it resetting back to non sport mode every time the engine is shut off and i found this... It's better to put the gearbox in sport, because if you leave it in normal it defaults to too high a gear all the time...
