I wouldn't worry too much.. just make sure you follow the basic rules and not get too carried away .. oh and maybe get yourself a cable in case :)

I've not had any problems with Carly or Bimmercode, the only problem I had came about because i did what you are not supposed to do... and learnt the lesson on the way.
Regards

So update to this...

BMW said that iDrive 5 can only be activated via USB activation code. They plugged in a usb stick and voila i have everything back to normal.

Sometimes powering everything off, locking the car and leave it anywhere from 10mins to overnight will be enough to reset things and Bimmercode will show the ECU again.

I've had this before with coding the ASD module.
