Open to other suggestions but I thought I'd throw this out there to get the dialogue going. Very excited about getting a group together!
That works for me. Looking at Google Maps of the lot, it looks like the quietest part would be due east of the big white pillar next to Best Buy.

post increasing interest for more people in so cal to come out for coding if they need it! thanks frogman appreciate this a lot! cant wait for a few custom codes!

digital speed is one you know how to code?
How about here: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=33.721831,+-117.793966

I have not coded digital speed for anyone yet (no one has asked before), but it's in the F10 cheat sheet, so it shouldn't be an issue. Also a guy in the Netherlands posted that he was able to code BC_DIGITAL_V on his F30, so you should be ok. We'll find out!

Doing the front side windows (and windshield?) in limo like that is like putting a neon sign on your car saying "ticket me". I'm surprised you lasted 5 hours!

Knowing that shopping center very well, I think out near the big white light column in front of the Best Buy as previously suggested would be the best spot (always quiet there and easy to see once you are in the area). This will be awesome! Thanks Frogman for volunteering your time! Lunch is on me buddy!

Sorry, unless we can recruit someone with the right equipment, I can only code F10 or F30 cars (with the Ethernet - OBDII cable). I don't have the DCAN cable or the software to do non-F series cars. Sorry.

Thanks, i appreciate it

I'll try to make it down there if my f30 is out of the dealer for service by then.

Thanks again for the information and invite!

Oh, may I ask If there a charge for this service?

We're just a bunch of F30 owners/enthusiasts who want to get more out of our cars. We're doing this for fun, not money.

Just a note to everyone so things are clear:

As far as the actual coding process; I don't touch other people cars, I don't want, and won't take the responsibility.

I let people use my cable and laptop and I walk them through, step-by-step on how to code the things they want to enable. You plug the cable in and you do the coding.

Once you know how to do it, it's really easy. If you are good enough with computers to be on these forums, you're smart enough to code your own car once you know what to do.

If you don't want any responsibility in the coding process, then you will need to find a person/company that will do the coding for you, probably for a price.

How about starting at 10:00am and go until we run out of cars to code?
Hello Frogman !

I have a feeling you will be there all morning and afternoon long...
hopefully the weather wont be too hot or warm...

Considering an average of 15-20 min of coding per car... we are looking probably at around (at least 2hours not bad.
We should all pitch in to buy him a good lunch

I will drop by just to see the gathering... It will be good to see you again, and admire your red car...

I was dreaming last night that my car turned red, and i would love it.

What would you guys say are the best codes to get for my vehicle?

I've got a F30 with comfort access, premium package, Technology package, and xenons.

I'm interested in things like video in motion and idrive disclaimer removal, but I thought I'd ask the community what they thought some other must have coding is? Thanks guys.

tpms numbers, digital speed (i have no HUD), auto fold mirrors, auto roll windows (upon lock/ unlock). getting rid of that disclaimer would be nice too

really its just personal preference on what you would like!

i guess it will actually give your the read out of the actual PSI of each tire individually as well as the temp (temp is pointless to me but i like seeing each tires psi individual)
