No, don't have the cable yet. The car is going to the dealers for some work to be done next mth, so may as well code after that.

Mind sharing why your car is going back to dealer so quick? Any problem? Mine has a very annoying rattle coming under the instrument cluster after just 2 weeks of ownership.

Basically the interior trim (the Estoril Blue highlight) was damaged before delivery, so that has to be replaced. Also I have the PDC software bug as well as some rattles in the door panels, so that has to be addressed at the same time.

I was just trying to see which option codes regarding infotainment are coded wrt cars sold in specific areas.
I have to try out later whether adding (or changing/removing) those VOs will enable or change certain features, such as BT data transfer, Office, BMW Live etc.

Could anyone help me with the FA editor... let's just say I bought the front PDC retrofit kit, after I'm done with the hardware & wire harness installation, is it as simply as using the FA editor to code in the option code for the ride and it should work, or it's more complicated than that?

In all likelihood, the dealer won't be of much help (unless we are willing to pay them an arm & a leg) to do the coding, so wanted to find out what exactly need to be coded!

Thanks!

Nothing is simple.

1) You would use FA Editor to add PDC Option to VO, then write the VO to the CAR. If you do not write it to the car's VCM, then future dealer programming will wipe it out.

2) I assume the retrofit kit comes with a module, so after connected, it should appear in your SVT, but you will need to use Detect CAF for SWE to add the CAFD to it, then VO Code the module.

3) You will also need to code other affected modules, which I imagine would be KOMBI and HU_CIC, and maybe FEM_BODY.

The easiest thing to do is VO Code the entire car to be safe, which you can do also by selecting your VIN at the top of the SVT and selecting CODE. Since VO Coding though codes the entire module, in this case every module, it will overide and FDL Coding you may have done, and you will need to come back afterwards and redo it.

Since the F30 does not have FRM module, I've ran a search and found something similar to the F25.

In the Frmbody module > 3061 LceLciOutputChannels, 67
TFL_L or R: front LED corona rings L or R
NSW_L or R: front fog lights
FRA_V_L or R: front turn signals

Here are other names in that channels that need to be checked:
AL_L or R: brake lights?
POL_L or R: are LEDs according to the settings, maybe the parking light strips on the tail lights.
FL_L or R: not LED
SML_L or R: not LED
FRA_Z_L or R: most likely mirror turn signals as the setting is set to LED as default
BIX_L or R: name looks like Bi-xenon?
LCI_0: LED
LCI_1: LED
LCI_2: not LED
LCI_3: LED
LCI_4: LED
LCI_5: LED
LCI_6: LED
LCI_7: LED
LCI_8: LED

Settings are similar as well
WARMUEBERWACHUNG - Warm Check
KALTUEBERWACHUNG - Cold Check
IS_LED - Indicate the bulb is LED
Any negatives to turning off the checks en masse? I am trying to figure out which one will stop the rear turn signal check.

EDIT: Read some more of the X3 thread, it looks like AL/FL are low beam / high beam. So that really just leaves SML as the possibility, so I'll give that a shot.

Could you elaborate more on this procedure, don't quite get where to select the "VIN at the top of the SVT and selecting code"... Sounds like a good thing to learn in case I screw up and break something while playing with FDL...

I'm perfectly alright to recode those minor changes that I code using FDL, not that many

Was looking for this (which is mentioned earlier in the thread)

BC_DIGITAL_V_KORREKTUR

on the 2013 M5, but didn't see it? Am I just missing it or is it really not there?

Note: I did find BC_V_KORREKTUR and disabled it. However, I am still 4mph off at 70. (So it reads 74 when I'm actually going 70).

Thanks for your input.

I think disabling the cold and warm checks won't affect the actual functions of the lights. The car just won't tell you which bulb is out.

TFL_L or R: front LED corona rings L or R
NSW_L or R: front fog lights
FRA_V_L or R: front turn signals
FRA_Z_L or R: most likely mirror turn signals as the setting is set to LED as default
AL_L or R: low beam
FL_L or R: high beam
POL_L or R: are LEDs according to the settings, maybe the parking light strips on the tail lights.

If the above is correct and AL/FL represents low beam/high beam, then BIX is free-up. The following 2 are either rear turn signals or brake lights? but there is also reverse and rear fog lights (maybe in the LCI entries)... hmm... need to do some testing over Christmas.
SML_L or R: not LED
BIX_L or R: not LED

LCI_0: LED
LCI_1: LED
LCI_2: not LED
LCI_3: LED
LCI_4: LED
LCI_5: LED
LCI_6: LED
LCI_7: LED
LCI_8: LED
