Cool USB video in motion unlocking and other coding

Hi all,

New to the 6 forum as I say goodbye to my E92 330d Coupe and wait for my brand new 640d M Sport Gran Coupe in a few weeks.

Specs:
Space Grey with Cognac Brown Leather
M Sport Plus Pack (HUD, Harmon Kardon, 20" 373M Wheels)
Sunroof
Advanced LED Headlights with High beam Assist
Reverse Camera
M performance Kidney Grille (Dealer fitting before delivery)

*Pics to follow soon upon delivery*

Looking for a coder in Manchester that can help unlock Video Playback off USB while in motion. Not for me to be watching don't worry, more for easily bored kids.

Also what other cool things can be coded on the LCI F06? I've seen reverse camera viewable at speed, folding mirror upon locking, etc.

I am fairly computer literate and would love to have a go coding myself if someone can help me out.

Thanks in advance.

Awais

Hi & welcome, your car sounds fantastic. Looking forward to pics.

As well as the advice 640m will give, the F10 and F30 sections of the forum have dedicated coding threads - lots of useful stuff on there too.

Hey guys,

Just got a confirmed delivery date, car should be with me before the weekend. It's booked for privacy glass front and back on Saturday and then the rest of the modding can begin.

640m - can you please pass on the contact details for the coder who is near Manchester? I'd like to get the video in motion unlocked and a few other things.

Have you guys had anything else interesting coded?

The car is finally here!

So I finally picked up my new 640d GC on Friday and I am really happy with how the colour combo of Space Grey and Cognac Brown seats has turned out. I had the dealer fit the M Sport grille, but it is a pre LCI version with 10 slats and not 9 like the new LCI grilles - it still looks really good though.

With the rubbish weather this weekend, I have not really had a chance to get any decent pictures, but I took some in my works car park...

Only other mod planned so far is the privacy glass which Pentagon Auto Tints in Bury will be doing in the New Year. Has anybody used them before?


640m could you please send me details of your coding contact in Birmingham, as I want to get the video in motion unlocked and anything other cool coding features you can recommend.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Congratulations! Fantastic colour combination and good spec.
Do you have the heated steering wheel and Surround View?

I would get the car sealant protected - either Modesta BC or Crystal Serum Gtechniq - for outstanding gloss protection. Hard to tell from your pictures and the lighting but Space Grey is very sensitive to detailing - meaning get it done!

Hi guys, can anyone on the forum recommend a coder near Manchester?

Keen to get video in motion unlocked and reverse camera in motion, increased symbols on HUD, fog lights on unlock and any other cool mods people can recommend.

Hey mate.....I'm gonna be using the contact who 640m is using. He's had loads of great reviews.

Most owners go for some of the below:-

- disabled seatbelt chimes for driver and passenger

- enabled video/DVD-in-motion

- disabled other speed locks

- display entire text for messages

- detailed TPMS (with temperature)

- rear view camera zoom

- changed start-up splash screen

- USB video playback/storage

- special codec support (XVCD/XVID/OGG)

- open/close windows & sunroof with keyfob or Comfort Access

- fold/unfold mirrors with keyfob or Comfort Access

- auto-unlock doors when car turned completely off

- turn off nav/radio upon engine off & driver door open

- one-touch operation of windows while door is open

- enabled Enhanced Bluetooth

- European Variable Light Distribution for low beams

- European No-Dazzle High Beam Assistance (LED headlights)

- add fog lights to welcome lights

- allow simultaneous use of fog lights & high beams

- high-beam assistant on by default

If you give him your shout he'll send you a sheet on what's available for your specific car.

Have fun and keep us posted on what you end up going for

640m Has kindly sent me details for the coder based in Birmingham who can remotely code your car. I contacted him on Monday and he has posted me the cable and software. He will then use Teamviewer to control my laptop while I'm sat plugged into the car and he changes the relevant values for the things I want done.

I will report back hopefully on the weekend when he has done the remote coding and let you know how I get on, but he has come recommended and reasonably priced too.

Hey All,

I am pleased to say that Adam over at DD Coding (https://www.facebook.com/Ddcodinguk/) did not disappoint and successfully remotely coded my car over the weekend. Big thanks to 640m for the recommendation.

I had the following done:

* Enabled USB/DVD-in-motion
* Entire Text (SMS) display
* Owners Manual in Motion
* Disabled other speed locks
* Detailed Tyre Pressures and Temperature (really cool)
* Rear view Camera at any speed
* Idrive startup animation to M Performance
* Special Codec support (XVCD/XVID/OGG)
* Acoustic feedback for Lock / Unlock (can switch on and off from iDrive)
* Fold mirrors on Lock with one touch (without having to hold the button down)
* Ignition switches off itself when the driver's door is opened
* One-touch window operation while the door is open
* Fog lights on with Welcome Lights
* Fog lights on with Side lights and remain on with High Beam
* High Beam Assist on by default
* Active Sound changed to M3/M4
* Sport Dials changed to Red
* Weatherband to Nav screen (doesn't work on all cars)
* Sunroof Auto Close when it Rains (doesn't work on all cars)

My wife is hopefully getting her X4 in March and a colleague his 435xd, so I am planning to arrange a weekend in Manchester for Adam to come up from Birmingham and do loads of coding if people would be interested in setting up a meet?

I am thinking a weekend in the middle of March, say Krispy Kreme car park at the Trafford Centre... what could be better Doughnuts, Coffee & Bimmers!

Just contacted Adam - hopefully getting mine done this Friday. What is the active sound piece ?
