Enable EfficientDynamics (Shift Indicator) on 6MT

Thanks to NiVeDh:

This feature is for 6MT cars only. It basically tells you when to upshift and downshift and to which gear for maximum fuel efficiency.

It normally suggests upshifts at very low RPMs (~2000). It works well.

Once coded, it can be enabled/disabled through the OBC by pressing the BC button the indicator stalk until the instrument cluster goes to the blank screen (not displaying anything such as mpg, range, etc.). Once there, holding down the BC button for around 5 seconds toggles the feature on or off.

Here's a video:


Here's what to code...

Module: KOMBI
SP_ANZEIGE -> aktiv
SCHALT_PKT_BC -> aktiv

Enjoy.

is there a way to code the actual number gear the car is in for MT? it seems pointless, but it'll look cool.

A previous post says that the car doesn't have seperate sensors for each gear, so I'm thinking not. It only knows if it's in neutral or not.

Is coding something that can be done by me in my driveway with a BavTool?

EDIT: Nevermind...I didn't even realize there was a coding section

Good find, I guess we need to simply activate it with:`

Code:
MMI_ENA_SHIFTLIGHTS
	nicht_aktiv
I need to make a small change in my KOMBI so I will try later today or tomorrow.

My best guess is that those are for the steering wheel that has lights (///M).

sorry I meant to say the instrument cluster that has lights over the revs.

My buddy said that it might be my SSK. I didnt believe that to be the reason but i cannot think of any other reason why

I have the same problem and I have a 328i as well. People on the 'other' forum are saying the same thing. If anyone with a 6MT N52 car are able to get the arrows to work please let us know how you did it.
