FRM DIY

Do we need to have dealer install this or can we DIY?

^ you only need to code if it was pulled from a different chassis.

Should be plug n play for the most part.

You can replace it without too much difficulty. It does need to be coded to the DME. I think if you have the Foxwell / Scawben scanner you can code it, but don't quote me on that.

The dealer can code it, but they will charge you at least $100.00 to do so.

A local shop that specializes in European Autos can probably do it for a lot less. I had a new FRM module on an X5 coded for about $50.00 once.
