M start up on i Drive screen

I've had my 2016 M6 for 2 months now. A few days ago when I hit the button to start the car this really cool video played on the screen showing the M logo at the end. It only did it that one time and has not done it again. Only the warning message comes up. I looked through all the settings and can't find anything related to this. I would think it would display every time you start the car. My Corvette always played a cool little hype video every time.

Here is a picture of the screen I always get and a short video showing the display on an F80.

bimmercode will also code it. Mine was coded for it befoe but was not consistent. After the bimmercoding and some quiet time, it is regular.

Have a look at bimmercode.app It is simple to use and allows you to code many things without getting too geeky, but gives you access for deeper dives. I also have the other coding software on a laptop but this is handy.

just pay for the app and buy the adapter and you will be good to go. The expert mode allows you to do the more "complex" coding. You can perform a lot of the coding that you would do with the pc based packages

have a look at the "bimmercode.app" site and scroll down to OBD adapter, click on that and it will show a variety of adapters that work with the app.
I have one of the older adapters (iCAR PRO, $30) than the ones presently shown. (they were cheaper but work fine on BMWs)

I think the app was about $30 to activate. There is a demo mode that you can review before plunking down the money.
