---Coding Help---

Hey Guys,

Unfortunately a review thread about a member was deleted by the mods for no reason.

Wanted to post my experience with getting my car coded from an enthusiasts like all of us. DIMSUM helped code my car to gain some really good features.

He does not do this as a business but more to help out local members that really want these neat features but aren't comfortable with doing it themselves. It was unfair to have his review thread removed, as reviews make other members comfortable when they are looking to get help from others.

His passion to help fellow members really show when you meet him to get some coding done. He is extremely helpful and even teaches you a bit if you are interested.

The biggest coding he has done for me was to get my car coded to accept oem xenon headlights. Couldn't have done all of it without his help and expertise.

Those that need some help with coding features on their car can contact DIMSUM at *********************

I know...

I’m new to this forum and I don't want to step on anyones toes, but from what I’ve been reading regarding deleting of threads/posts, moderating posts and removing coding DIY's etc... com'on, this is a BMW community forum, members helping members... you _business_ guys on this forum need to relax... it's making for a pretty useless forum... what's next? Shop owners removing DIY’s of brakes/stereo/light installs because it _hinders_ their business? pretty dumb...

That is very unfair, that brother helped me out when no one would.

And take note that I called him "brother" only my brother would what Dim did for me and trust me I don't go around calling everyone a brother!

Dim your all good!

I don't understand... why do coding threads get killed? Is it one of those "Playstation 3 hack" sort of deals that site owners don't want to be connected to?

I think it's because of the non-sponsorship.
You need to be a sponsor to do that.

Why do you have to be a sponsor to help with coding a car?

He wasn't selling anything. He does not post here about selling his coding services. He just a local member helping those who need the help.

Not sure why he needed to be a sponsor..I think we all know the reason, but I won't say it

I think it was because he was "charging" for the service thus making money by using this website. Also sponsors saw it as a "threat"

Ohh well...this thread is here to help those that are looking for a local coder to program their car.

Can't go wrong getting it done from DIMSUM

Good thing, I had a chance to read the entire thread before it was removed and I would like to thank desi4life for the excellent review as well! Was very informative!

thats not right. i think sponsors probably complained which lead to the deletion of the thread. good thing i found this cause i was going to ask mr. DIMSUM for some coding needs.

I agree the ban was unfair. He's probably the only one in the GTA who does coding without charging an arm and a leg for it, ex: indy shops. He also lets you watch and explains what he's doing.

+1 to DIMSUM, great guy
