    Default BMW coding

    Who does coding these days other than ECUtuning? I was thinking of getting a cable and bimmercode, but I hate doing that shit, I'm not technically inclined enough, so I know I'll do something wrong lol

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have a cable and all the software, depends what you want though, is it coding where you enable features or actual tuning?

    Also depends on your chassis

    ECUProgram does it, but it seems fairly pricey.
    There's also remote coding providers who will ship you a cable and then remote through your laptop.

    I have a cable and have coded some options on my F25, but that was a few years ago and I haven't bothered to try to keep my software up to date, so it might not be compatible - depends on whether you have CIC or NBT iDrive, and software version.

    It sounds like plugging into a laptop is the archaic way now though. The winning option these days is the Carly or BimmerCode app - pick up a bluetooth OBD adapter off amazon, download the app and away you go.

    If you find the kijiji ad for 'CanAm BUDS programming', he also does BMW programming. I found him a very good guy to deal with and inexpensive. (his name is Butch)

    Bumping this...So I ended up getting a reader and bimmercode to do some coding and it worked out well for most things.

    There seems to be a coding that isnt perfect for the enhanced bluetooth feature that I coded and I'm in search of someone that can figure this stuff out, to decipher what some of the shit means to get this feature to work perfectly through the app.

    If anyone has some insight to this, that would be awesome.

    To name a few, video in motion, trunk close with the fob, seat belt ding off, BMW I audibles...plus quite a few more. There are so many options to choose from that I didnt have time to fuck with.

    I haven't used Bimmercode since I'm too cheap to pay for another dongle/software but I've coded enhanced bluetooth through E-Sys. From my 30 second Google search, looks like VO coding is the only surefire way to do it, which bimmercode doesn't do.

    Happy to lend you my cable if you want to download E-Sys and play with it.

    Thanks man. I do know about this, but was hoping it was sufficient to use bimmercode. One day I'll hit you up and get this figured. Thanks for the offer.
