BMW Performance Brakes VO Coding

Post by Dan116i » Sun Feb 01, 2015 11:49 am

Am i right in thinking the VO codes for the BBK is:

$100A - Usable load increase
$102A - Reinforced brakes
Now: 2006 130i with even more goodies ;)

I'd be interested in this to.

What are you planning Dan? Alter the VO and recoding what modules with new defaults?

Pretty much, apparently those codes alter the ABS, DSC and DTC for the bigger brakes

I'm sure there is different coding for different brake setups
Changing abs perimeters

But are they needed I seriously doubt it
Will it have any noticeable affect .?


I don't think so but I'll keep an open mind

Im not sure if they make a difference. But 125i, 130i have bigger front brakes compared to my little 116i ones. So the BBK on the front of mine is a massive improvement over stock compared to a higher spec model. Just don't want to find out the hard way :|

I never hear of any one having to code in BBK & there is plenty of people who have do it.

The proper coding for Performance Brakes retrofit is: +SPBR & VO code the DSC

This will make a difference to the biasing.

Do you know how to do this exactly?

I successfully added +SPBR to my VO, and wrote the new VO to my CAS. However, when I try process the DSC and I select "change job," there is no "FA-WRITE" option. Any ideas on how I can get my DSC updated?

Seemed to work well, but it was very fast - any way to verify if it took?

It would error if it hadn't worked. The brakes should feel slightly different.
