Like your iPhone, this isn’t something for the technically challenged, but if you’re tech savvy, this modification’s well worth it. Wondering what you can do if you code your BMW? Here’s a short list of options that can be accessed and changed by coding: Restraints and Airbags Disable Seatbelt chime Disable airbags (aftermarket seats) iDrive and Information Display Enable Video/DVD – Play Movies/Videos in motion Turn off Navigation disclaimers Car Access and Convenience Enable auto roll down/roll up via keyfob Enable one touch roll down Fold mirrors Lighting Customize welcome lights Disable Amber cornering lights Customize Daytime running lights Instrument Panel/Cluster Enable digital Speedometer Enable HUD options, turn signals etc. Enable Sports displays Performance and Misc.

Please do so at your own risk. My test subject was a 2015 BMW i8 , with the basic process pretty straightforward: Plug OBD Cable to vehicle, power laptop on, turn car on to accessory, launch program, enable code changes, upload, turn car off, then turn back on. Seems easy enough right? As long as you have the correct guide to match your vehicle and know the changes you want to make ahead of time, it actually is.

Each module within the program breaks up the car into “sections.” For example: all of the navigation changes are in one folder, while the lighting and camera options are in another. We changed all “Navigation” related items first, then saved before moving onto other parts of the car, such as: Play Movies/Videos Video in motion – allows for Movies and Video while driving Camera in motion – allows you to access any cameras at speed (normally only during parking speeds) Window roll up/down via remote Customize Menus Addition of Tire temp to TPS monitor screen. ///M logo on startup HUD Display configuration Change Navigation voice to British Accent Disable legal disclaimers Once your changes have been made, it’s a simple “upload” back to the car’s computer (this process can take some time depending upon how much has been changed). Unplug the laptop, start the car up and you’re good to go! Here are some examples of the features added to the i8. MP4 video format with title info: Weezy MP4 video splitscreen with Weather app: Fullscreen for MPEG/BluRay(MKV) format: Addition of tire temperature to TPMS section: Front camera enabled at speed: These are only a handful of features available to code; a more comprehensive list of changes (by chassis designation) can be found here:  http://www.bmwesys.com/guides
