With Bimmercode, how do you return to stock?

I'm about ready to try Bimmercode. After making changes, when I need to take the car into service, how do I change the car back to stock where the dealer can't see I've made any changes? Is there a quick way to do this like with tunes where you can flash back to stock?

Thanks.

I don't think your dealer is going to care that you used BimmerCode... what have you coded?

You can restore from a backup. I'm always worried I would lose my phone or something so I also hard copy write down what I changed as a backup.

No need to restore to factory just for a dealer visit - they really don’t care and it’s not going to void your warranty or anything like that...
I’ve had mine in a few times for regular service, and no one even mentioned it. They may not have even noticed anything different...

Only thing I do when going into the dealer is turn off auto-mirror folding since everybody notices it.

Ha, I was just going to chime in on this topic to disagree that they don't care and saw your post....I got an earful from my dealer after the tech noticed my mirrors fold in lol. They made a super big deal of it. Like...over the top ridiculous...I had the Sales rep, Tech and the Service advisor surround me in a room reading me the riot act lol.
Needless to say, I no longer take my car there....and would not buy another car there as a result.

That sounds a lot like an intervention

I don't even do that and no one has ever said a word...I really don't think they care about minor insignificant coding changes like that - I think they're mostly concerned with major things like engine tuning, drivetrain mods, etc. - the items that are expensive to fix/replace...

It all depends on the dealer (obviously) and/or your personal relationship with them.
