Coding - Pay It Forward

Guys, I just wanted to give a shout-out to shawnsheridan. He's the most helpful member on this forum. Without his help, I wouldn't even know where to start.

Messaging with Shawn back and forth, I finally loaded the software to another laptop (work laptop had firewall, so it wouldn't connect). I went code crazy all morning. Coded the following:
- Euro MDM
- Rear Fog Light - thanks to tom @ eas
- Remove legal warning on nav screen
- Remove seatbelt warning
- DVDinMotion
- A/C memory
- Unlock doors at engine shut-off
- Brake Force Flashing

Refer to the VO coding document for the anti-dazzle or Euro LED headlight. U.S. DOT didn't approve BMW's anti-dazzle technology so you must change the vehicle order (VO). Follow each step carefully.

Cable Link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/OBD2-ENET-Et...135320&vxp=mtr

If you guys have any questions on how to get started, let me know. If you need the links to the software files, ping Shawn.

Shawn doesn't want any money for helping us out. If you're feeling generous, please donate to his buddy who's been providing the Coding Application data and hosting all the coding software/data. Paypal email below.

warpeddriveservices@gmail.com

I gotten hundreds of dollars worth of features for my car. I hooked his buddy up with a small donation for the support to the BMW community. Pay it Forward.

Once your software is installed, you'll just need these 2 documents attached. If you follow these 3 simple rules, you will not do any damage to your car:
  1. Never click on the "Code Default Values" button
  2. Backup (Read and Save) FA, SVT, and CAFD files before you start
  3. Only code the CAFD files (green circle)

Euro MDM parameter under DSC Module:
C_Laenderkennung => ECE
CTpmsMarket => EU
CPrewarnEnable => enable
CPrewarnIgnition => enable
CalLrPDevMax => 50kpa
CPInitRangeMax => 80kpa
UiaSetLevelPc => 20%
UiwSetLevelPc => 15%

I am curious on the A/C memory setting. What does it do and what did you code?

I am having an issue when I configure my AC unit to recycle air only, it changes to automatically change between fresh air and recycled air randomly. If I push the "MAX A/C", it never leaves the recycled air setting. However, if any other setting is configured, manual randomly changes to automatic. Drives me nuts. I hate smelling fumes on the highway.

Coding A/C memory will solve your problem. It will keep your setting every time you turn the car on. I just posted the F80/82 coding parameters on my OP (page 5). Go nuts.

Unfortunately my issue is happening post startup. I am actually changing the recycled air setting while I am driving and a couple miles later it reverts back to the automatically switch between fresh and recycled air.

I assume you do not experience this anomaly? Or is this normal behavior? I was hoping your A/C change would help with this issue.

Thanks.

I keep mine at Auto - Air Circ. I bet it's a safety issue, the car won't let you leave recycled air for a long period of time. You will run out of fresh air inside the cabin so the car automatically lets fresh air after a long period of driving?

Leaving the air circulated also causes condensation on humid days. We have a very nice air filter, is there a reason why you want the air permanently circulating in the cabin?

Yes. Smell. I smell the road and the exhaust of other vehicles. This is how I even know it changed. I smell something and look down and then swap it back to manual.

Why even have a manual setting if it swaps back. Anyways. Thanks for your assist.

When you say "rear fog lights", which specific option is it?

Brake force display?
Rear fog light with welcome lights?
Rear fog lights stay on with high beams?

I don't have LED headlights. Maybe my next F8x.

That's a shame, anyone who is planning on coding should splurge for the LED'S.
Amazing.

I bought my car from the lot, so didn't have a choice. I'm rather impatient.
That anti-dazzle? It is amazing, creating a light tunnel. My 6GC has LEDs, but there's something in the headlight design that prevents the anti-dazzle to work.

Start ordering the cable and install Esys, LOL. It took 3 days for the cables to arrive. Longest 3 days ever.

That's only because you bought your car from the lot.

That's right. I don't know how you guys can wait months for your car. Now EU delivery would be worth waiting for.

Thanks for the cheat sheet! Been building my own, but this is more comprehensive.

I've had the car for >2 months but only managed to code anti-dazzle due to the v55.1 thing.

Will try to code more this weekend.

Lol well-said...

I personally waited because, if I'm going to spend many many thousands of dollars, I want to get exactly what I want, especially as I plan to keep the car a long time

Thanks for the cheat sheet .

There is something that caught my attention:
FEM_BODY'Module:'
HighHBeam!Assistant!!AutoHOn:!
! 3060!FLA_AKTIVIERUNG! ! ! ! set!to:!werte=02!
! 3073!C_HBA_ENA! ! ! ! ! set!to:!F030_enable=01!

HU_NBT'Module:
HighHBeam!Assistant!!AutoHOn!
! 3000!HIGH_BEAM_ASSISTANT! ! ! set!to:!aktiv!!werte=01!

KAFAS2'Module:
HighHBeam!Assistant!!AutoHOn!
! 3050!FLA_ON_OFF!! ! ! set!to:!aktiv!!werte=01!
I have the LED headlights but not HBA (HBA only comes with the technology package in Canada), so I cannot get the "anti-dazzle" high beams to work.

I do have the KAFAS2 camera though because I have the speed limit info. I'll try these codes above to see if I can get the HBA to default to "On" .

Unfortunately, I'm still in Korea. I haven't even driven my car yet. It's waiting for me. 45 days till I come back home.

I'm going to order the cable before I get home. I have Esys, just need to install it and get familiar with it. A bit different than VCDS.



Speaking of HBA and the KAFAS2 camera, I was wondering if Speed Limit Info could be coded in because ZLP includes the cam. Anyone done this?
