Naturally he got everything back by coding it.
Hi Clarence!

Thanks for chiming in. I checked under the boot floor and as you suspected, there was a combox installed.

Model# BE B007; BMW 84109257150 Combox Media BN2010, Date 8-6-12

Do you know who originally got this to work? Or do you know how to yourself? I am looking to add BT audio streaming as well as Internet capabilities if possible.

Also, I am waiting on my cable to arrive to find out those variables in the VCM that Shawn asked about to see if that helps my situation.

Many thanks!

It was Dos1973 (or Dos sth, member from Germany) who got it working. Basically he upgraded from 6NH to 6NK for free. Everything's on page 70-sth on this thread.

For F30 they're the same thing - M-sport brakes/M-performance brakes.
For safety u should code it cos I think it changes the settings for ABS & DSC.

It was Dos indeed, and for what its worth he had the pro navi option as well (something I suspect beeing connected to the castrated combox)

Kom maar eens af als het niet must lukken.

Feel free to come here if you need help. I'll shout instructions from a safe distance, as I don't want to be seen near the duck

Why BMW like to complicate things? If they are the same, why can't they just code/option it the same?! Lol

Because then too many people would do it themselves instead of paying ridiculous dealer prices? (not just bmw for that all brands do it)

One is a factory fitted option that's exculsive to M-sport package & the other is a retrofit that's available to everyone.
They are coded identically but one's already coded from factory (former case) & the latter at time of retrofit.

I'm happy to see this thread is still alive and kicking, even more so than before.

As for the M Performance logo, it worked on my car, I don't have anything M related on my car, it's a simple Luxury version instead. Here, I quickly made the following vid (I only just upped it, it will be converted by Vimeo in about 30 minutes after I post this here):



Perhaps, in regards to the GPS_UHR, it is mainly meant for when you cross timezones in your car? In that sense the car will see by GPS when you enter a new timezone and might adjust accordingly?
This is awesome ... sorry... can't seem to find details on what modules contain this. Has it been updated in the cheat sheet?
