You are welcome. Meanwhile, build up a list of things you wish to be coded.

Currently running with sidelights on to get same effect but could do with light switch being on auto with just from halo's on in daytime then putting usual night time lights on when sun sets?
Can anyone help? If you do organise a session in the North let me know

There hasn't been any session anywhere. I am based in South (Hampshire). I will be happy to do a session if I have an opportunity to come to the North.
I am not a professional/ commercial coder, I do this for fun and my own learning.

I do travel quite a bit, so if I am ever travelling up North, I will post my plans and would be happy to code/ help people understand coding, etc...
So far, no upcoming plans.

Understood - and thanks.
Please do let me know if you get North of Birmingham and I'd happily travel to meet you to help with coding out the undesirable quirks. I've no experience with this type of thing so I'd happily send you back with few crates of beer or similar as a thanks?!?!

Is there anyone else in the North potentially up for this? - if there's a few of us we could make it a worth while trip for gspannu.....bit of a booze cruise

Gspannu,

I'm just up the M3 near Ascot. Would be very grateful for a coding session with you. Got a 2012 528i M Sport, what changes would you recommend to the standard code?

Newbie to the F10 crew

have recently purchased a used 520d SE 2010 (MA60 ZPT) (Couldn't afford an MSport) with following extra's
Professional Sat Nav
Visibility Package
Upgraded Steering Wheel
Heated Seats
Bluetooth etc

Is there anything that can be done for my car coding wise.. I haven't got TV or DAB is this something that can be coded?
Also the dvd in motion?

Total Virgin to forums so any help would be appreciated

Thanks

I am on holiday abroad at the moment. Back in around a week's time.
Get in touch then and we will sort something out.

I can highly recommend GSPannu.

Hello Gspannu,
I have a 520d LCI which has pro media but does not have the enhanced bluetooth. I understand that on LCI cars this is a coding change. Would you be interested in coding this change and rear DRL for me?
Thank you.

I live in Cheshire and work in Manchester so I want to be part of the "up north" coding group. I am looking for the enhanced bluetooth mainly but there are others features I am interested in on my 2014 LCI 520d MSport. How do you "turn on" sports display?

You are more than welcome to come around.

DRL coding is quite simple.
I am not too sure about Enhanced Bluetooth coding (have not done it myself as I ordered this in my own car), but if you know what needs to be coded, I can definitely do it.

PM me when you wish to come around...

Not too sure about the Enhanced Bluetooth.... but sports displays should either be already enabled (in LCI cars) or can be done by setting both EFF_DYN_SPORT_CID and EFF_DYN_SPORT_UNIT to aktiv. These should be under HU_CIC module (possibly within 3000 HMI).

Hi Guys,

Sorry to throw in a spanner !

I am travelling extensively for the next 6 months (multiple out of UK trips planned - all work related), so chances of me coming up North are very limited.

However, if I was to make a business trip up North; I will post the dates as soon as I know and maybe something can be worked out. Please do not plan anything otherwise.

Thanks...

I for one am not looking for favours or payment in alcoholic beverages. If we had a whip round we could create more of incentive, PM sent.
