M1/M2 MDrive settings -- which module stores these?

I just retrofitted an HU NBT Evo ID6 to my 2015 F80 that had HU NBT. On startup I get this odd behavior with the M1 and M2 steering wheel buttons:
  • M1 gets populated with crappy "efficient" settings. Even the "Reset M1" settings in the iDrive menu would be way better.
  • M2 remembers my settings but in iDrive all the current settings are blank when you view them in iDrive. You can change them in iDrive, but the current settings after startup are all blank.

So bottom line, M2 is usable but M1 is not. Not the end of the world. I've reset my driver profile, changed to a brand new profile and the behavior is always the same.

Is there a module I can code to clean this up? If so, which one? The Bimmertech guys that sold me the HU NBT Evo say the HU does not store the MDrive values, it's just the interface.

When I flash a new tune my M buttons reset to default.
After that I change the settings to what I want and then hold the M1 or M2 button until it sets.

Is this what your asking?

Thanks. I will try flashing the DME to see if that clears it up.

Yes, and specifically what module did you flash?
