It seems as though the oem ecu or "brain" for the e90 can only be manipulated for standard coding and that's all. An after market car starter would probably fry your electical harness for your ignition. Running staggered wheels on an XI is something that BMW actually does, but I never heard of a BMW fresh off of the showroom floor with a remote starter. You are probably running the risk of a very serious electrical problem in due time.
