Active Blind Spot Detection no Vibration

Anyone been able to code out the vibration for the active blind spot monitoring? I don't mind the arrows but the vibration is unnecessary for me. I generally have plenty of room. Just wondering can it be adjusted independent of the arrows. Looks like all the previous coding has been changed in BimmerCode.

Funny. I actually wish that I could make the blind spot monitoring vibrate the steering wheel more. We have another car that has a more pronounced steering wheel vibration so I barely notice the BMW's. They really should make this kind of stuff user adjustable.

Another pet peeve is that they have that little bit of flashing yellow that shows on the edge of the side mirror when the turn signal is on. The blind spot monitoring is a yellow triangle in the same direction as part of the mirror. So when you see yellow out of the corner of your eye you can't trust whether it's the blind spot monitor or your own turn signal. I'm thinking about blacking out that turn signal on the edge of the side mirror.

I suspect you could unplug vibration unit.

Yeah this used to be an option in BimmerCode. It may still be, but the fields have changed. I know you could increase the vibration intensity but I've read people still didn't notice it

I also think the vibration is barely noticeable. Would welcome a way to increase it.

There was previous coding to increase it but that has since changed in BimmerCode. I've read it still wasn't strong enough though for most.

Well, any improvement is welcome.

If anyone knows how to code it, educate us please.
