Ok So its too late for me to put up a detailed of how I did it but Basically I just spliced into the Wires that from the MENU and SPEAK buttons on the Idrive controller to control my Garage Remote, Apologies for the terrible audio dont know what youtube did to my audio lol.

Because this cost me a total of $0.00, Whats home link worth lol, Not to mention I don't believe home link works with rolling code systems.

Very nice mod, so do you lose functionality with the menu and speak buttons now? It's kind of dangerous as you drive off away from your garage and you use one of the two buttons and mistakenly open your garage for the day =X

This is great, but I have a couple of questions:
Why does my '08 320 only have one button next to the iDrive and yours has two?
How could I get this to work in mine?
With the homelink system, if it works with the flashing, how does it work when your car is in the garage and you want to get out?

The whole flash2pass system simply works on switching your remote when u pull the flash lever, it has nothing to do with the actual lights flashing. Yeah ive seen a few Idrives with only 1 button. You have Professional Navigation ?
