Absolutely.

I can code any feature remotely.. just did an M3 in Minnesota yesterday a 335 in Philadelphia today. Takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of features. This includes LCI retrofits, bluetooth retrofits, replacement parts retrofitting, dvd in motion, plus anything else on the coding list in my sig etc..

Some new features to note that I have not mentioned before:
1) Turning on the xenon headlamps with the trunk button
(will post a video of this, just need to upload it from my phone)
2) Using the fog lights as cornering lights (if car is equipped)
Example video:

3) Angel eye brightness for BOTH when the headlights are on and off
4) Euro frequencies for radio (for those that need even numbers)
5) Make the rear fog lights work in tandem with brake lights.


I am also working on the brake light frequency flashing for when you try to stop fast or slam on the brakes. This really wakes people up behind you and might save you from a rear end.

I plan on making a thread sometime in the near future with my complete CIC retrofit as well as information on the remote coding. Those of you interested in remote coding can contact me via email or PM at anytime (although email is much faster). I also plan on revamping the coding list to make it more interactive and explanatory.

Thumbs up Coding Success

Gents - just wanted to share my experience with a custom coding job by Mike. Basically, I opted for essentially all options possible...the preverbal 'kitchen sink'. Every feature works flawlessly and was accomplished on the first coding effort. It's amazing what lies dormant and available within the cars infrastructure.
Mike was extremely responsive, easy to work with, and demonstrated mastery of the entire process...remotely I may add. I'm quite impressed, so much so I plan to do additional business with Mike going forward. I highly recommend 'opening-up' your cars capabilities and definitely recommend Mike.

Thanks Joe, it was a pleasure working with you.

Email me your phone number, want to follow up with you tomorrow on the Internet options we discussed.

Made some headway with my car today, check it out (and this is with no Assist subscription):

Those of you waiting for a response to email, my apologize for the delay. I haven't had much spare time between work and the CIC retrofit.

Emails from the 26th and on will be responded to tomorrow, thank you for your patience....

I am going to be playing with my car some more tomorrow. The combox and CIC are quite sophisticated, so there is enough there to keep me busy for awhile.

Julio: Next time I'm up there I'll take care of it for you buddy.

Anyone who is interested in remote coding, please drop me a message.

Mike does remote coding so you're in business as long as he's done this for the 335. You might wanna check the E90 side to see what mods are available in this regard since the Ms don't have LCI headlights.

I can do it no problem.

However that's quite an expensive headlight assembly to retrofit..

But if you have the parts I have the coding to make it work 100% perfect like factory.

TECH: Going to update the snap-in thread now.. Version 3 is a winner!

Posting from my iPhone..

Just a quick update.. The BMW flash drive loadable firmware update fixed a large host of issues I was experiencing.

The Internet works flawless now every time. Within a couple seconds it activates tethering on my phone and off it goes.

Also, BMW live is working with full functionality, and it's much better than BMW online which I found pretty useless.

I wish I could post pictures but it won't let me from the iPhone. I will try to put some up later.

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the delay in responses. I am roughly 60 emails and 10 PM's behind. I hope to have them all answered by Monday night.

I wish there was more time in a day!

Thanks,
Mike

Over the weekend, I had Mike take care of some issues I was having as well as talking to him about some new things to do. I can't recommend him highly enough. Thanks again Mike!!! I'll see you again soon.
