+1 mind including me on that?

Yes. Had issues with the HID kit I was running so I removed it and threw on the stockers for now. After trying out nearly every option (halogens, HIDs, LEDs) I'm considering opening up the headlights and putting a set of Orion V2/4 rings on. Nothing else beats it, especially in terms of providing equal lighting to the outer ring.

Thought of trying GP Thunder bulbs? I agree with the uniformity issues, but I'm hoping once I can code the AEs to 13.7, it should help out. Since they are halogen, they still fade in/out properly too.

I've tried a few of the halogens i.e. GP, mtec, etc. Wasn't impressed, but maybe I'm just picky? It's a great value at the price point though, especially after coding.

Well i have INPA working but as for everything else not so much.

I am guessing there is no a completely translated "MSD80.ipo" file for INPA?

Coding your BMW is like Rosetta Stone. You'll learn German REAL quick!

The changes are a huge improvement over stock and it's been a fun learning process along the way. Feel free to ask if you need any help getting the software running or would like me to code some items for you!

Hey where are you located?! I want to do everything you mentioned in your post. Pm me if you want to try and set up something

Been meaning to post but keep forgetting.. Rob coded me about month ago

Video In Motion
Windshield Wipers complete full cycle when ignition is shut off
Remove iDrive [ACCEPT] screen
Remove Seatbelt warning gong for Driver, Passenger or both Driver/Passenger (light remains on dash)
Windows up even when door open
AutoFolding Mirrors on remote lock and unlock
Hold down remote lock to rollup windows
Change Low Fuel Warning from 1/4 tank to 1/8 tank

took about 1 hours to do everything.. and everything works perfect.. plus Rob came to me which was awesome =)

Can you code the DDE in a diesel 335, or just the MSD for the N54?
