Great clarifications, thanks. I was down at my local BMW dealer (Seattle) a few weeks ago and asked them to re-porgram; they explained that they could not find the codes... I honestly think they tried and didn't know where to look...
Would you be willing to provide a little more detail as to where in the special software you went to make the change?
