Coding new F06

Anyone know if coding can be done on the newest models? Iíve just tried coding with bimmer code and vgate icar and the active sound hasnít changed. In fact, I think it may have disappeared altogether!
Help would be appreciated

Would part of the issue be caused because I opted for M4 engine and I run an F06?

Is e-sys similar then in that you have to choose multiple different options? Like engine, date, competition pack?

Its based on engine model number number in esys, the mobile app type coding makes it very easy to do, but esys is much more granular

this looks a good setup to try on a laptop, ive got the VM for Esys only.

This looks to have some more bits n bobs

@durb if you still using the mobile apps give this a go


This is the VM i have (remove the space between b mw, link greys out for some reason)

Thanks Mark. I emailed bimmercode support and had a reply today stating that BMW have stopped the coding of ASD on newer models but this contradicts your statement on doing it on a newish 6er using e-sys. I wonder if e-sys is the only way to go.
Thanks for the link, Iíve looked through it and it looks far less user friendly than the bimmercode app!! Not sure where to start but Iíll have to read the link in more detail
Thanks again

TBH its scary to look at, but theres a few youtube vids that make it pretty simple. worst bit is creating the VM if you have little computer experience

download VMware free (14 day trial, but plenty of keys out there)

And you can definitely change ASD using this system? Just want to double check before going to the effort of downloading it
