So, yesterday was my first time to code my car and to be honest, I have codded some really cool features to the car. However, when it comes to the welcome light, I have only managed to make the taillight and the number plate light soft on, I did not see an option to make the rings soft on as well. There was a setting only for the low, high beam and the fog light. Anyone had any success to make their rings soft on with the welcome light?

Just for a reference, this is what I mean -

I was wondering why I couldn't code my new cluster after the retrofit I did. Good to know I can do it now.

It is on my LCI. I remember following your thread about it and was curious why your M2C didn't have the option to turn it off

Indeed possible they removed it for the M2C only. Might also be its an EU thing.

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...

Bimmercode - Start in Sport+ or Sport?

Does this functionality exist on F87 models? I saw an option to start in Sport+ on demo mode, but not in the actual environment.

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

The display_resolution parameter does not show under 3000HMI in HU_NBT. I think i'm doing something wrong. Would appreciate it if anybody could direct me in the proper direction.
Hi
These might help you. Exact locations vary by model but should be close.
coding change needed to upgrade 6.5 display to 8.8 for f48 with NBT evo ID6
Using Bimmercode in expert mode HU NBT 3005 display_pip_config section
Change CID_Display_res from 800x480 to 1280x480
Change CID_Display_ size from 6.5 to 8.8
Now go out and enter 3001 section and find
Display_Variante and change from schmal (German for narrow) to breites (wide)
Now go into Nav section
Find Display_Resolution and change from 800x480 to 1280x480
In brief 4 coding changes in 3 separate section of NBT HU ecu
All changes require expert mode.
Screen works after first two code changes, nav will work also but you need to change res in nav section to get full screen effect in map view and finally section 3005 change is needed otherwise idrive home screen will only show two menu icons (like in 6.5 display) rather than 3.
I checked all other differences between option SA6UN nav and SA6UP Nav plus
It would appear than to get final full Nav plus functionality (excluding hud and touch controller) for CID , you may need to disable arrow view, it appears twice in lists in HU_NBT 3000 HMI once in English as arrow view and also Pfeil ansicht. Looking at functionality differences between the two; SA6UP has assistance window and SA6UN has arrow view (both show route arrows as pop up window on side of map) both views have same info but different layout. And my NBT evo ID6 menu has option to turn arrow view on or off I have left this for the moment. I may play and see if changing arrow view code to not activate then gives me assistance window - Final update< after long journey, functionality just appeared in nav menu. Looks like delay in coding effect in the nav software section.

Hope this helps
Mark

Also would love to know this.

Honestly wish there was a repository of common things in BimmerCode and how to do them. Searching through 50+ page threads on various forums is NOT fun.

Hi all. Curious if anyone has been able to change the auto high beams to be able to illuminate from any speed. Normally I think that it won't let the high beams turn on until you're going 20 or 30, something like that. Thanks in advance.

But I never coded getting the mirrors to fold on lock - mainly because I have a convertible and that action closes the top. But then there are the other things that are hard to miss... temp on tire pressure, different active sound setting, startup screen display, removal of all warnings, disable start/stop... not to mention the Dinan stuff.
Funny enough my 535i went into diagnose some problem with all of that stuff you mentioned coded. Including fold and unfold mirror with door lock/unlock. They fixed all of the issues and all they did was recode everything back to stock and that was it.
