When to code FRM2

This automatically programs the module with options that should work perfectly with your car. Then you must simulate the make year whenever coding the NFRM. Long process but it shouldnt take more than 20 minutes(with programming time into that number)
When in the retrofit process to you code the frm2. I have one and I'm going pre lci xenon to euro lci ahl xenon. So do I install the xenons, code the xenons with the frm1 then install the frm2 and do your above steps? Also do you have more detailed information on how to properly code the frm2?
