Default BMW Coding to unlock additional features

I've been very active in BFC, M5Board, and Bimmerboard for years but just now subscribed to the DFW Auto Club. I just want to offer this service in case some of the BMW owners might be interested.

Need some coding done on your later model BMW?
I can help. PM me for details.
Some of the coding available:
- Removal of disclaimer in iDrive
- Activating Digital speed on the BC(*practical for cars without Heads Up Display)
- Mirrors auto folding on lock and unlock
- Windows auto rolling up on lock push
- Full Mp3 read on CD
- TV module activated (*if you have the module)
- Auto unlock of doors when you stop
- Adding turn signals to HUD
- auto unlock of doors when stopping so no need to double push
- auto closing of sunroof when rain is detected
*Many more functions for doors, windows, warnings, etc...
All coding done with BMW professional tools.

For more details, PM me or email at bimmercoding@gmail.com

Some of my work:

In DFW

Coding is also available for the following BMW models:
BMW 1 SERIES
BMW E87 — (2004–present) 1 Series

I am interested in what can be accomplished on a 2011 e92 m3.

Would any of it be erased with a dealer flash?

I am interested as well. Do you offer the BMW E92 M3 LCI LED Tail Lights Retrofit coding as well? My research shows Replacement of the light module (FRM) is not required if the vehicle is being coded by the specialist. Lastly, do you offer a flat rate for multiple or unlimited codes? I have a 09 e92 M3.

Thanks
SK

Please email me at bimmercoding@gmail.com for a complete list.
Typically, for the e92 M3, the popular options are
- angel eyes Brightness
- Activate Xenons when unlocking (Welcome light)
- auto unlock of doors when stopping so no need to double push
- auto closing of sunroof when rain is detected

I'm still researching additional features that can be unlocked on the models from 2011.
A complete flash from the dealer would reset the functions to default. If that occurs within 6 months, I'll recode it for a discounted rate...up to 50%, typically.

I have researched the codingnfor the retrofit as well and I'm confident I can help you with that. I just haven't had a chance to test and confirm yet.

Yes I do offer a flat rate that includes up to 10 options, a rate for unlimited options(all that I can activate from the list), and a rate per additional option once you've requested the standard 1-10 options package.

Please email me at bimmercoding@gmail.com for more details.

Karter, I could take a look and try but the software and updates I'm currently using haven't been very successful on 2003 cars due to the modules contained in those vehicles.

Is it the physical cable that may not work or software issues?

I was waiting to obtain and test the actually update files for your car. Software and cable weren't a concern. I can code when you have time.

Not sure but I might be coming down within the next 2 week ends but i can come sooner if I get commitment from 5 or more people. So far, there are 2 interested parties.
There is a 335i owner who's considering coming down to Dallas to see me next weekend. If it s a possibility I could connect you to him for a caravan/ road trip.

Hi. Thanks for that. We spoke yesterday. I appreciate it.
Saw you last night at RiceKiller but again, I didn't know any of the faces. Next time.
Do you ever attend the saturday meet?
