What coding options can you recommend?

I was going over the options for coding. I went through their list and made a tentative list. I also saw that they mention there were other options available, all I need to do is ask. That begs the question: how do I know what to request if its not in the list?

So, please check out the list I made and tell me if you think I missed anything, or if you can recommend anything that isn't in the popular coding lists.

Keep angel eyes bright when headlights are on
More number of turn signal iterations when not fully pressed (max is three stock, but you can code it to be 5/7/etc)
I don't know what else lol

I think that if the halos stay bright, the headlights tend to look aftermarket. At least thats what I thought when the first DDE's started replacing the Angel Eyes and Phosphyres back in my E46 days. I'd have to see that code on an E92 to make a decision.

Why would you do that? I don't even like the 3 signal bursts - its a turn signal not an H/K MP5

I'm undecided about that. I've been behind people that have those strobing taillights, and I found myself captivated by the flashing, and not paying as much attention to what I was about to run into.

It'll only display under hard braking. And I mean hard constant braking so it's not going to show everytime you come to a stop. I was on the same boat as you originally but it's a nice feature and get compliments on it everytime I'm out on a drive with others
