So I bought the V-Car and downloaded Bimmercode on Tuesday night. Took about 20 minutes to code all of the below - no issues, worked a treat.

Now, to look at some of the more complex things?
  • Radio/nav off when drivers door open
  • Windows not interrupted by doors opening
  • Door handle LEDs on in reverse
  • Start/stop remember last setting
  • Add DRLs to setting menu & activate rear DRLs
  • Change Nav boot screen to ///M
  • Add acoustic sound on lock
  • Add digital speedo

Planning to start coding and see what I can do with bimmercode. Do I just need to buy the adapter below and connect via Bluetooth?

Or is there a better adapter?

It connects via wifi. I'm assuming you've purchased the bimmercode app too? And yes that's the right adapter.

Thank you for responding, cool I'll buy the adapter and then purchase the full app.

Still waiting for the car to be delivered will let you know how I get on.

Anyone know if you can code the exhaust valve to stay open in all modes? Cheers.

Just unplug the control switch from the exhaust by the flap.

You can control the exhaust flap via an app called bimmerlink. You can keep an eye on temperatures and other stuff too.

Do you have to have that connected all the time? I'm on android and use bimmercode on my missus ipad.

Text messages have started coming through now about 2 weeks after coding EBT and thinking it didn't work.
It comes up as a notification and you go to messages to retrieve it which is different from my previous bmw in that an envelope icon popped up and you went to the office menu to read it.

Apologies for the shocking noob question in this thread. But just need a bit of help to get started.

I've just bought the Vgate iCar 2 WiFi OBD2 adapter and downloaded BimmerCode + unlock code (£25.99).

Plugged the adapter into the OBD port but the light won't change from red and I can't connect via the app. It should turn green and then be able to connect via the app. No joy so far with ignition on, engine on and ignition off.

Do I have a duff wifi adapter?

Thanks

Did you go to settings-wifi then connect to the vgate adapter that shows in the list? Then open the app and click connect. Should work fine.
