You may want to add a bit of text explaining what "Life Cycle Impulse" means in BMW terms, since it's not at all clear.

Some things I noticed.

CCC is wrong. Not sure what it stands for but it is the pre-hard drive based NAV HU.

CIC is the hard drive based NAV.

I may still be getting the CCC and CIC mixed up. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

FWIW= For what it's worth

Dinan is a aftermarket tuning company.

MAF = Mass Airflow Sensor

This is a cool thread. Good job.
