F36 Gran Coupe coding

Taken the plunge and decided to start fiddling with my car's ECU

First changes include:
  • removal of iDrive disclaimer
  • removal of side/rear/top camera warnings
  • car to start in Eco Pro mode (hey, it's my daily)
  • car to start with ASS disabled (it has caused me battery issues)
  • screen and instrument cluster to display //M Performance animations on startup
  • tyre temperature displayed alongside pressure

There is a heap of information out there on the bmw coding forum but it's all a big mess that makes it seem harder than it is. You basically connect a laptop to the car via a $12 cable and run a program called E-Sys. Your expenditure can stop at $12 (cost of the cable) or depending on who you talk to you may be persuaded to shell out more for a working setup.

I've uploaded all of my changes to the car and look forward to testing them out tomorrow

Success!! All changes effective



I had to reset the date/time, and also my memory buttons need to be reprogrammed, but apart from that all is well. Very easy and fast.

For reference I used E-Sys v3.26 and psdzdata v54.

Hi,

Just got my f36 too... Have a cable and looking for software. Can you advise where I can get it please?

Looking to:
* close powered boot using interior button
* fold up mirrors on lock
* enable enhanced bluetooth

I'm fairly new to this but have technical background. What I'm missing is what the token is needed for and what does and doesn't need it.

Thanks

You are looking for "e-sys 3.26.1" and "psdzdata v54"

The token is just a software licence for e-sys. You need it to modify the coding files (but don't need it to read the settings off the car).

Here's a good video of the process:

Thanks Sean...

Couple of questions if I may:
* RE enhanced bluetooth. I have pro nav and S6NHA taken from the bmwvin site. My research says about changing to different values based on the starting value. Could you confirm what I should change to based on the above?
* Also - maybe a trivial question, should this be done with ignition running?

Thanks,
Steve

Car should be either on a charger, or motor running to ensure proper ECU voltage during coding.

I'd highly recommend doing it with the engine running. I first tried to code with a 3.6A battery tender connected to the car and I had lots of connection issues - disappeared as soon as I started the engine.

Also turn off your laptop's firewall/AV just in case

Awesome... Just done it. Followed the pdf to change from and then recode the head unit ecu. Worked a treat Though some bits just needed thinking. about due to slight changes in software.

Thanks to all.

Question is do I build up more courage to change to fold mirrors on lock? Hmmm. Another day I feel.

Hi, do you still have the names of the settings you changed to achieve these?
or a cheat sheet ?

thanks

Not sure. If you say it is not there, I believe you. BMW may have changed the FDL Code name in HKFM2. I have not studied it to know.

Those Funktion names are not found in HKFM2, but functionality with additional choices are.
