Do you know if it's possible to add Bluetooth streaming to cars that have the Bluetooth option with the base (M3) stereo? Or is this a limitation of the base stereo?

Thanks

The Professional OEM HU does not support A2DP, the software is simply not there.

True.

I've been able to activate A2DP streaming and get the option to show up on 2009-2012 iDrive units. However, I believe you need combox in order for that to work properly. I was able to get it to come through one speaker which is not sufficient for your listening quality.

Thanks, I'm glad we took care of all of those MRS errors (9 of them!) and reenabled your passenger airbag that went offline due to the racing seats. It was also good to see you again sir!

Anyone who is interested in Race seat coding, please contact me. I have it worked out so the entire airbag system is in full effect, no errors or warnings, and nothing turned off that shouldn't be I've coded many cars with different racing seat setups, whether it's the Recaros or factory BMW performance seats, or whatever else - you can expect factory quality coding from me with no modules, wiring cutting, fault codes, or anything like that. Just plain how it should be.

I have also made a number of very significant programming breakthroughs in the last few days, I will be sharing with everyone soon

Hello friends,
I am from Bulgaria and soon put their retrofit steering wheel paddles for gear shifting, all cables are properly tied, but the paddles do not work, that should not be activated in some way software. I would be very grateful if someone help me.

Thanks in advance!
The car is 2007 E90

I can activate that functionality remotely if you'd like. Just let me know via PM/Email.

In the next month I will be releasing a nice little tool for everyone to do coding with. It will start first as a remote in tool, packaged on a flash drive with everything you need for me to code your car.

After I have some time to develop it further, it will do coding for the end user as well.

You could display it as CC message, but that would require additional hardware. Alternatively, you could activate the display of uncorrected speed in the instrument cluster display.

I think that you are right. Our combox equipped cars can stream.

I'm working on end user tools which will allow me to remotely code your car by sending you a flash drive (instead of a laptop, etc..).

This will cut down on overhead to a great extent. I am also going to be including a few other services with it, so stay tuned!

Edit: Available now - you just need the cable.

Can the "curb monitor" (passenger mirror tilts down in reverse) be coded for cars without the feature - I guess it's part of the premium package - or is this dependent on extra hardware?

Thanks

Pretty sure that's standard -- you just need to (somewhat counterintuitively) have the mirror control switch set to the driver's side. Tilting mirrors isn't the same as folding mirrors, the latter of which is in the Premium package.

I've since found this post that says this feature was dropped around 2011 for cars without the Premium Package (where manual seats also be came standard) and cannot be coded as it is hardware dependent.

If the mirrors can still tilt, that seems like an artificial limitation to force people to get extra options.

EDIT: Seems this function is tied to the module that controls power seats, so if your 2011.5 M3 has manual seats that module is missing. Lame.

Same issue here - my wife's 328ix has manual seats and the mirror doesn't tilt as a result. Really pathetic considering all the sub 45k cars that come standard with this now. I was also wondering if I could code this on her car.

Wish you were local... If there is a local car that comes to me without the tiliting function, I'll figure out how to add it and then can send you the remote kit to fix that on your wifes car

anyway to code the default AUX screen to display the clock?

also do you keep your pdf list up to date with all the toys you've managed to figure out?

do the AE's dim when the xenons are activated? Or are you able to code that out as well/keep the AE's from dimming with xenons on

No dimming whatsoever. In fact, they get brighter when you turn the headlights on

Hey Mike!

I'll be in touch soon - still waiting for our '12 e92 M3 to get released from the VPC (it's been there for a month - damn EPA!) so we can get the multi car discount. It looks like you've been busy and found another thing to code!
