so angry !!! how much did u guys pay for LCI programing?

My BMW dealer called me today that my oem LCI lights + frm3 modul are w8ing for me.

Then i went to the biggest auto electronic company in my country (Europe, Slovenia) i was told that it will take them to install and reprogram about 2 hours and the price 200€.

2 hours went by and the car was still not done, so i waited 6 hours for unfinished reprogramming. The check light is still on and my auto blinker (3x) doesnt work.

And the guy went to BMW dealer with my car(without permission) to pick some channels and somehow the price was already 250€

and it is not the end, when i park my m3 at my home, i see scratches over the rear bumper.

So i need you guys, to tell me how much hours did it take your company to install LCI lights and reprogram it and how much did it costs. Because tomorrow they will see hell !!!

OP- not sure what they were doing with your car, because LCI programming takes no more then 15 minutes. Installing the light units, maybe around 30 minutes.

2 hours.. WTF...

I installed my LCI tails 15 minutes... and coded for 15 minutes. WTF are they talking about.

EDIT: ok i think it does take a while to program yours since you bought the FRM module... hoping some tuners chime in... but no way 2 hours plus to program your LCI including the FRM module. BS...

I code friends' cars for free, strangers for tips. Too bad you're not around here. Best of luck!

Noob Question: What happens if you don't code? Do you get a bulb out warning? How can you code this yourself?
