Coding: Lives in Richmond, VA ... willing to travel or do groups

Name: Ben
Phone: 3one7 - 8five0 - 8five3two (Texting is preferred, but calling is OK)
E-mail: BMW codingBenW [at] g mail [dot] com

If you have a model other than E9X, please let me know first thing. I code primarily E9X but have no problem doing other models or Mini

What I can code
  • Digital style speedometer (V = 0 mph)
  • Speed correction disable (~2-3 mph)
  • Front corner amber bulb delete
  • Corner LED delete for E92
  • Remove ignition key gong
  • Roll up the windows while holding the lock button on the remote
  • Fold up the mirrors while holding lock on fob
  • iDrive warning delete
  • Disable A/C from coming on automatically
  • Wipers end in down position.. never stuck halfway
  • Automatically go to "Entertainment" on iDrive after a few seconds
  • DVD while driving on cars with CIC units (older models (CCC units) require an additional $50 module)
  • Unlock all doors when the engine shuts off.
    *For me, it's nice because I always need to get something out of the back of my E90. Others like this feature so that their passengers don't get confused.
  • Seat belt warning disable
  • Fog lights stay on when flashing high beams
  • Fog lights stay on with bi-xenons high beams
  • Double impulse Hazard lights (some models..this can be YouTube'd)
  • Factory alarm coding. Requires that it be installed. I can help with that too, if need be.
    *Saves you 2 hours of labor from the dealer just for coding alone
    * *NOTE* - I can also help increase the volume of your factory alarm
  • Welcome lights - including pathway lights
  • Bulb error check removal for after market LED lights
  • Adaptive headlight error removal
  • Activate and customize welcome light grouping - angel eyes, rear license plate lights, main lamps, etc
  • TPMS deactivation for aftermarket wheels or track wheel switchers.
  • Sirius radio activation
  • New Battery Registration
  • Error code checking and clearing

Disclaimer
There are risks involved in coding. It is very unusual for someone to brick an ECU doing this, plus I know how to revert your car back to factory settings to make sure you leave the appointment just as you came. I still ask that you sign a waiver releasing me from any responsibility since I'm not doing this for business/profit.

Availability
I will travel! There must be at LEAST 3 cars confirmed for that day in order for me to travel, however. It's just me doing this and I work a normal salaried job...so I'm pretty busy and have a life. As long as you keep in close contact with me I'll get you coded. I ask to be reimbursed for gas, because I had to fill up twice this past weekend just to do coding. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come straight to my apartment!!!

Those of you who don't recognize me (which I don't expect you to), I'm the one who did the meet in NoVa this past weekend. I had great success doing all pre-LCI cars. I had a snag on LCI 09+ cars, but I'm 100% certain this issue will be resolved by the end of this week. I wont even be able to get back up that way for 2-3 weeks anyway, but I want you all to stay assured that I will be able to assist you in your coding needs

I'm in the Richmond area with an e90 LCI. Can we hook up sometime soon? I'll be an LCI guinea pig for you...

I'd be happy to do that if that is what's most convenient for you. I am headed out of town tomorrow after work and will not be returning until Tuesday. I think plan to go up to NoVA (at least at this point I plan to) on the 24th, so if you could wait until then you could just be first on the list

I am going to connect with Ben tomorrow afternoon while in Richmond to see if he can code my LCI. Fingers crossed.

Check out the 804 thread (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=446061) we usually meet once a week and balls can possibly code at the meet if you work it out /w him.

Well the primary thing I was looking to have done he wasn't able to do this time around (dvd in motion), BUT he wanted to try to code a few features to make sure he had it figured out. So, I decided to get the digital speedo, folding mirrors with key fob, windows and sunroof close with key fob and and key fob eject. I think that is all. I am sure if I forgot something Ben will chime in.

Hoping to get the dvd in motion done next time he's in Fairfax.
