I'm so depressed...coding in Utah..

Hello guys,

I saw couple of vendors do the coding service in Cali with decent price.
I really want to code my car to unlock some great features such as disable seatbelt chime, dvd in motion, M3 digital speedometer, delete amber, side mirrors, etc.. So I googled and it seems like there are only two places in SLC have autologic. I called them and asked for coding service.
Then they refused to do some (seatbelt, dvd in motion, delete amber side, etc) which are related with safety issues.
I was like, WHAT? I didn't quite understand. Then why vendors in Cali offer the services?
Also, in order to unlock some features, they want me to leave the car for a day. Does it really take that long to code it????
I didn't ask the price but I'm sure they will charge me a LOT

Please help me out. I really want to get this done.

Did you try the coding sub-forum? I believe there is a guy who can remotely code if you have a laptop with internet connection.

PM Mike Benvo. He does remote coding where he ships you a flash drive. Those are safety features, so I'm not surprised Autologic turned them down. Coders just are willing to do it anyway, like shops that will install illegal tint or exhausts.
