Anyone have the tools to code in M Performance brakes?

I have seen the threads with the lines of code you need to update an F3X to M performance brakes, but I havent done it and dont have the software.

Anyone PacNW local and familiar on how to do it?

Thanks!

It looks like there is an option code (SPBR) you can add to your FA when you retrofit the m performance brakes. I've got the coding tools necessary to perform this work although I've never done this specifically before. I've done lots of coding and I've updated my i-step level so I'm sure this would not be too difficult.

I really appreciate that thank you.. I was able to actually get this worked out and running esys on my laptop.

Sounds good! E-sys is great if you want to customize your car at all, I've coded lots of things and done a couple retrofits which would have been impossible without e-sys. ISTA is invaluable as well for any kind of diagnostics.

Thank you.. it took me 3 days and a ludicrous amount of help to get it running, and I even rewrote the SPBR instructions as they were not intuitive in any way.

The token I have is good for another couple of months, but don't see a need for it unless I do other sport brake coding for folks, or lightning strikes and I get a killer steal deal on M4 seats.

I got some sort of cracked version that doesn't expire but yeah, you only really need esys to do coding which for most people is probably just a few times until you've done everything you want. I also used it to retrofit active cruise control, NBT Evo, LCI tails, and LCI IHKA3.
