E87 coding software options

Post by Flipster » Mon May 21, 2018 12:22 pm

Hi everyone I'm new here having just bought a 2011 123d (E87). So far I love it.

Reading many posts on here it looks like there is lots of good stuff you can achieve by coding but I'm unclear about which is the best approach.

I liked the look of BimmerCode but I from what I can gather that doesn't work with the E8x 1 series. Am I correct??

Icarly looked OK but quite expensive.

And Esys which all seems a bit confusing in terms of getting it installed with virtual machines etc. Although seems this is the most comprehensive for coding.

I've read and searched a lot on here but can't reach any conclusion, any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers.

If you just want to code for the one off, Carly is expensive, I bought it to do my own coding and diagnostics, ended up doing other peoples cars for £10/£20 so I made most of my money back.

If you just want it for the one off, don't bother buying it. Find someone local to you who can do the coding for you.

I think carly is going to be the way to go.

Appreciate your advice.

It's the easiest and fairly idiot proof. Backups are taken BEFORE any coding is done so if something does go wrong, you can revert to the backup.
