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.

Converted a PNPTechnic harness so I can turn ASD on and off via a switch or via bluetooth from my phone.

A lot of cables to fiddle around with...

Just installed the bypass harness on a MY16 pre-LCI, and wow. What a difference! Only issue I have now is that it's TOO quiet for my tastes...luckily, I have a HJS 300 cell downpipe waiting to remedy the lack of noise with an au natural soundtrack!

I went for the "hifi' rather than HK stereo (so I do have a separate amp in addition to the ASD module, but it isn't an HK one), so pulling the fuse seems to do the trick.

No. The HK is also a separate amp.

That's pretty bad-ass! If only we could do something like that for rev-match...

Okay just wanted to +1 for this being the best ever. Why would anyone want all that fake'ness? I will say, the only thing I was disappointed to miss was the revmatch sound. Can't believe even that was amplified and therefore "fake". Oh well, now I just have to crack the window down a bit to hear it better (or open valves on my MPE, haha)

get a sport cat or catless downpipe and you'll hear it again but this time it'll be real sounds!

This. I got a fabspeed sportcat for the power but man was the sound a nice, unexpected bonus. I have DCT so no rev match, but the growl shriek noises are so much nicer. You can really hear the turbo too.

I turned off my ASD with the bypass cable. It's a nice, elegant solution. This function wasn't part of Bimmercode when I did it back then.

I keep my window at least a little open unless there's a ridiculous downpour.

Read this post and others in the past. All have said that removing a fuse w/the HK audio not only disabled the ASD but also the radio. Yet it seems with other models removing the fuse or unplug the ASD amp does work. Though I am surprised that unplugging the models doesn't record a fault when the car is brought in for service.

I find it strange that pulling a fuse or unplugging the ASD works on so many models, except the M2?
