Good stuff. Thanks for the confirmation.

I have a June 2016 built 2017MY M2 DCT. Should I be use the harness or coding it out? I don't want to lose audio quality or have strange static noises. Just want ASD off.

I went with the bypass. No problems after 10 months.

Either will work. Just depends on what you are most comfortable with.

so both will result in the same? ASD off with no audio side effects?

The main difference is that a software update wipes out your programming while bypass is permanent.

I can only provide first hand commentary on the bypass harness. Works perfect, easy install, no issues that I can detect and it has not caused me any problems with service.

Only issues I have ever heard about relate to improperly installing the harness. From what I can tell, correcting the install resolves this.

Many have coded ASD off with BimmerCode, esys and other tools. I personally know one person that coded off and he has been pleased with the results. This matches what I have read on the forum.

A code update from BMW will probably mean you will have to recode ASD off again if you elect to do it via software.
