Step 10) Run "C:\EC-Apps\ESG\E-Sys\E-Sys.exe" (It will take E-Sys a while to write the log file) and Under Options, Settings: On the ODX Tab, set the ODX Rule Path to "C:\ESysData\Rules" On the EST Tab, set the Developer-Soft-Token EST Path to "C:\ESysData\est\Code Away.est"
Yes, it does. If you follow Step 4, then Step 10 has to be:

On the EST Tab, set the Developer-Soft-Token EST Path to "C:\ESysData\e-sys est\Code Away.est"

That is how my original instructions were written, but someone made a mistake restating them.

That said, you can put "Code Away.est" token anywhere you want so long as you give E-Sys the correct path to it's location.

Anyone had any success w/ either disabling bulb errors or changing resistance values?

I know the resistances can be changed for a fact, just not sure how (the error disabling is the easy one, changing voltage/wattage/resistance is different) - There is an active member of another forum that works @ a dealership and charges $30-40/hour to change the resistance values.

On the e9x, disabling bulb errors is as follows:

FRM (NFRM) FEHLERMELDUNG_CC_SL_V_L X
FRM (NFRM) FEHLERMELDUNG_CC_SL_V_R X
FRM (NFRM) KALTUEBERWACHUNG_SL_V_L X
FRM (NFRM) KALTUEBERWACHUNG_SL_V_R X
FRM (NFRM) WARMUEBERWACHUNG_SL_V_L X
FRM (NFRM) WARMUEBERWACHUNG_SL_V_R X

^* E9X ONLY UNTESTED ON F30 *^

These are in the 3067 LceTmsCoding2 section:

AHL_DRIVER is AHL, Werte is 01
LWR_DRIVER is initwerte, Werte is 01

Thanks Frogman

OK so mine is the same for LWR and AFS but at "00" for AHL.

It seems that's these are driver settings to power motors in headlamps.
LWR is vertical adjustment I'm pretty sure.
AHL I'm guessing Adaptive Headlights?
Maybe AFS is for other models.

Hi Guys, I just tried coding the closing mirrors when you lock the door, either by Key Fob or by Comfort Access, but it doesn't seem to work.

I have the 328i Luxury Line, with Comfort Access, so I assume there is a motor in the mirrors, but how do I confirm this?

I know for one, I do NOT have a button to fold the mirrors in manually, near the side mirror controls on the arm rest, which I noticed in an X5 is there.

Any help would appreciated.

Other than that, I have successfully coded other features like no more disclaimers, the WeatherBand, and the Sports Display Units changing to HP and Ft-Lbs.
haven't tried DVD in Motion, but it is coded, and the elimination of the turn signals when not using them to turn or turn on hazard.

I just coded an F30 Luxury Line the other night, and his folded just fine, but still I do not know if it is standard equipment or an option, nor did I even look to see if he had an armrest button.

Does you car have SA430 Auto-dimming mirrors, as the power-folding function it is part of it, at least on the F10 it is?

I'm not sure if it has the SA430, but it has Auto-dimming mirrors.
How do I find out the options codes?
i'm new to BMW Coding, as I just picked up my BMW a month ago.
So trying to learn as I go.

I live in Canada, so maybe it's a difference between USA Spec'd and CA Spec'd F30's?

You can go here: http://www.rubmw.ru/vincode/eng/ to get your build details.

I have:

S430A Interior/outside mirror with auto dip
S431A Interior mirror with automatic-dip



I've coded the mirrors and have CA. I do have the button on the driver armrest.

There is also a typo in the cheat sheet. See post #311 in this thread.

Also, you have to hold the button (fob or CA) down for 2-3 seconds before the mirrors will start to fold in and the windows to close.

It's on the F10 cheat sheet but worked on my F25. Perhaps it doesn't on the F30.

Just did it, looks like I didn't get S430A, only S431A.
So I'd assume then, that I do don't have the ability to auto fold the mirros. Even though I have comfort access. Bummer

Unfortunately, the power-fold mirrors are not part of CA, but rather part of the Auto-Dimming option, presumably as they are already running electronics to the mirrors for the dimming, whereas with CA they don't.

What's odd though to me is that Auto-Dimming mirrors aren't included as standard equipment in the Luxury Line.

Maybe becuase mine is the launch edition "premium package" it came with the rear-view camera, and auto-dimming rear view mirror, but seems like it doesn't come with external auto-dimming mirrors, although on the options list from the dealership it says int/ext auto-dimming mirrors. Maybe this is something I can argue and get them to retrofit?

It does seem like this but they are actually auto-dimming. They make use of the same sensor as the rear view mirror, if you shine a bright light into that sensor, you'll notice the outside mirrors will dim a little bit... and yes, it's only a little bit... compared to how it was on my X5, the external mirror dimming on the F30 really sucks big time
