Talking Joining the GTA coder family!

Thank you E90Post and its members for teaching me how to code!

It was all started from not wanting to have the dull yellow highbeam halogen daytime running light (DRL)...

Now not only I can have my Mtec angel eyes as DRLs, I can unlock many more features of my car! (your car too, pm me :P)

Why is BMW hiding so many cool/good features of our 3ers?

Some results:
Welcome lights with fogs


Welcome lights with rear fogs


Closing everything with FOB

I believe so... I remember at first the cable were not detected in COM1 but COM2 and it was giving me errors, don't remember the exact error though. After making it COM1 and it worked fine for me.

argh my cable detects itself as K+DCAN in USB\VID_0403&PID_6001\A6000001

it doesn't regonize itself as COM1 I think thats where my problem is.

COM1 is COM1 one just by itself that I configured it seems like

After you plug the cable in, do you have to do anything to make the cable COM1??

When I plug the cable in, it detects teh cable but no drivers are avaliable. Do I need drivers for the cable? I didn't think so reading the doc.

I need a training session on how to use this... haha

I don't remember much but I think my COM1 were occupied by another device at the beginning, I had to find the COM1 device and force it to use another COM before my cable could use the COM1. Good luck!!

I just coded my wife's e90/early 07 FRM after doing mine. From start to finish it took me 30 mins. I must have modified over 10 codes went through the entire spreadsheet.

My car took a whole month to do tho, learning curve was pretty steep using the writeup.

haven't figure our the lighting stuff entirely yet, I got it half working ish haha. DRL is now angel eyes only with no corner light and corner light comes back at night
