Frogman was the closest for me. I live in North County San Diego, He is great. Explained the whole process to me then watched as I entered in the changes.
Made it super easy.
The drive up isn't bad, and you will love the mods after coding.

I coded my first F10 at the last meet. Any F-Series car should be fine as long as we can use E-Sys and the Ethernet cable.

I don't have any experience with coding E-Series cars via the DCAN cable and NCSExpert, so I'll have to leave that to others.

Frogman,

Are there coding updates that allows for 'M performance' to show up?


Thanks!

Thanks!
If you have the Nav, yes. The //MPerformance Logo shows up in the extended cluster and the HUD after coding. It does not show up on the main iDrive screen.

It's a simple one-setting change and looks really cool. I've coded it on at least 8 cars so far.

Hey Frogman, I just bought my 2012 328i sports/nav/prem etc. It doesn't have BMW assist so I don't have a2dp. I ordered the cable to start coding, but I'm anxious to start learning and make friends. Can I buy you lunch and get together for some coding? My car already has some nice custom changes to black it all out. Will post pic shortly.

Frogman, you were so helpful today. Thank you so much, and it was great to get together. The car works great, and Bluetooth and office are working perfectly.

Looking forward for the next meet up. I'll try to get it all working on my mac so I can help.
