Lol it took me a few reads then I just had a crack at it and it worked. I can definitely show you the basics though.

DFKMT, I would appreciate any info on this subject, if you would be so kind.
My email is <garncook@ozemail.com.au> and would like to learn how to do it! Coding that is!
Currently I've seen a list of codes, however, I have no idea how to change or implement them.

I'd consider myself very technical. I've worked it IT about 20 years and messed about with computers for 30 odd years. Every electrical device with a CPU in it in the house that can be hacked has been. I found getting my head around BMW coding was quite tricky. There is always the fear you'll kill a very expensive machine, whereas an Apple TV / sat box etc etc is 'only' a few hundred quid. The best way with all these things is practise and experience. I read over about two weeks every how to, every forum post etc etc. still my head span. The only way for me was to get hands on and try something. So I hollowed a couple of how to code guides (even then, there were missing steps), and today I coded my first mod - handle lights on for reversing :-).

If you aren't comfortable with the full on coding, maybe bmwhat is the tool for you. Check the feature list though as it might not do everything you want.

Now I'm off to read what else I can fiddle with, although I'm pretty sure apart from cruise, I don't really need anything else. :-)

Once I sort out my cruise I may still even ask Wibbles for assistance though!

The easiest option i have found was to buy the software of ebay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-DIS-V44-V57-SSS-V59-TIS-V8-INPA-EDIABAS-DIAGNOSTIC-SOFTWARE-USB-DCAN/191978600084

Any issues you have during installation of the software just drop the seller a message, he will set up a teamcenter session and deal with any issues... (I'm not affiliated with the seller in any way!)

From then its just research, research, research...

With simple coding its incredibly difficult to brick a module, and there is more than enough information with regards to restoring the module...

Any questions, just let me know!

Brand New to the forum - live in the Scarborough area. My car is scheduled for week 12 (signed the papers last night) - nicely specced M125D MSport - reading as much as I can.

Any chance you could send me this please? I'd appreciate it very much.

Many thanks

If this is still up for grabs could I please get a copy? As a new BMW convert (from Mercedes) I'd like to get to know my new system!

Thanks
