Code US radio to Euro Frequency interval

After 6 months of dead air from BMW (and mostly that on my radio too), I asked Mike Benvo to do some coding.

I have a N.A. spec E92 M3, but as a diplomatic delivery. The car came with European maps, but in all other respects was a N.A. spec car - amber reflectors, and side marker lights.

It took a bit of patience on Mike's part but he was bale to recode remotely. The radio is now receiving all the .0, .2,.4 etc broadcasts. No need to purchase different hardware - just a question of genius coding.

It was on my E85 without nav. But on the E92 with CIC it is not user configurable. It takes a coding wizard like Mike to go in and change it.

My dealer said that BMW will not do the partial recode - it is code as a Euro model or code as US. The problem is that if it is coded as Euro, some features will generate errors - such as the satellite radio.

Anyhow, after 6 months of waiting I finally have a working radio.

Mike is located in the US, but with the cable a PC and a wifi connection he can update your car remotely. That is what I did.
