No and I would like to make a few changes as well. Not sure about the self coding or wait a little while longer for SoutherBM to do it.

One point to note is I have read where coding has been carried out, only to be reset when the dealer carries out a software update. May not affect all codings, may only affect some changes, but it has happened.

Also;

And still wanting to;
- handle lights on when reversing

Not sure what else just yet.... lol

Yes, I believe it's provided you activate the front DRLs in iDrive.
I want it as well.

Sorry I should've mentioned, I'm in Bris...

The media player layout is in the HU_<something?> module.. the option was set to "old" with a dropdown that had "new" so I changed it to New.

The digital speedo, is a module in the kombi section..

Good to see you doing some coding eric

I did the digital speedo as well. Pretty handy as the steering wheel blocks my view of the real speedo. Also switched to the ///M Performance startup logo for some bling.

The media player one sounds pretty cool

I couldn't get the ///M logo on startup... looks like they're right in that it's for extended display. I changed the value to MPM but it's still the original logo

Very excited.

I have a long list of changes. Well a few anyway and some suggestions are always welcome too. Anyone found the extra 50kw & 75Nm for the 328i hidden in the coding? (hehehe)

Seriously, what happens to prevent the coding changes being reset or even changed (as in my case - see below) after a software update?

When I last had my car in to Stillwell for rear reflector refit, they did the worldwide software update. It changed my reverse camera from auto on when engaging reverse to press iDrive knob down to activate it after engaging reverse. Grrr. Will have it fixed this week.

Digital speedo is always on display for those with the HUD.

Smallish steering wheel with largish dash display was always going to be a compromise. Saw it as soon as I sat down in the test drive car almost a year ago. I couldn't get a clear view of the dash, even after spending several long minutes setting up the seat & steering positions.

Seriously? Was it almost a year ago? Yep. Wow, how time flies.

I would like to see an M-Sport lettering at startup, seeing I have an M-Sport car. Failing that wishful (read common sense) thinking, ///M Performance will do just nicely as the plain & boring BMW display is, well, B O R I N G!

It gets wiped. On the bright side I wouldn't expect the dealer to be applying software updates regularly. Less so as the model gets older and there are fewer kinks to iron out.
