Will coding lead to lease-end charges?

He'll get back to you, don't worry. He's a track junkie, so he's probably at an event.

Also, I see you're just interested in the "basics". That's great if you're sure, but I'd look/ask/research all options. I made the mistake several years ago doing the basics. Low and behold, couple months later I was back for more options.

My M4, has every available coding option done.

As far as the DP's, cannot help you there.

Yup did the euro MDM and its worth it 100%.

I got the cable, read the manual, and did the coding myself. First mod took me 1 hour, but once you know what you are doing its a 10-15 min job.

I did it. A must do if you plan to track with some nannies on.

(I am not at the level yet to trust myself with full nannies off)

Just got it done through codemycar. I'd say the only one that will recode for free if it ever gets reset. Also, responsive and explains some of the pitfalls of some coding choices, like having the cameras on during driving can be bad if you just come off reverse and then you drive forward.

Garage List
Met with Okee from CodeMyCar this past Sunday; changed BMW Sounds/Gongs to BMWi sounds; changed ‘One Touch’ Lane Change Count From 3 Blinks to 4; activated last seat Heating & Cooling memory upon Vehicle Start. Earlier this year, I changed about 10 items - Disable Legal Disclaimers, Seat Belt Chimes, DVD In Motion, etc. and also added Euro MDM -- Sunday's changes were at no additional cost. Okee owns a 2015 M3 and knows his trade - very speedy service and as GlobalScientist mentioned, CodeMyCar explains the pros/cons with all coding choices. They were busy on Sunday - while I was there - Okee handled an M5, X5, 335i, 750, and my M4 in the span of about 90 minutes.

Cool, and thanks for responding to my post...

Super pissed I missed him this time around, and looking at his schedule it might be quite some time till he's back down here, if not till spring? Maybe if we can get others interested he might make a special trip to NOVA for a day, though his calendar looks pretty full.

...hope to see your AY M4 on the road again soon.
