Coding Leeds West Yorkshire area

Just a heads up. I found this guy on facebook a few weeks ago

He used Carly and did the following on my car:

-Start/stop memory function (stays off until turned on again)
-Digital speedo on dash
-Door Handles light up in reverse
-Seat belt warning/chimes disabled
-Window continuation when door opened or ignition off
-Interior lighting brightness adjusted
-M sport boot up picture
-BHP and Torque Display
-Tyre Temps

Great guy with real love and passion for BMW's. Also a very good price
As well as the coding he showed me a few features of iDrive I wasn't aware of

I wasn't sure this post was allowed as its a personal recommendation

He is using Carly for now, but looking to go down the E-sys route once he's learnt it properly

I'm very naive when it come to coding as I'm sure others are, what's the difference between Carly and E-sys?

Carly is a simple App that already has the coding built in, you just tick boxes. Esys is a lot more involved and you can do a lot more.

I am not sure if you can do retro fitting with Carly

You'd need to check the Carly website it tells you everything it can do

I'd do it yourself mate! Isn't pricey at all for the result. Glad you found a nice chap to do it for you though.

Likewise, I have Bimmercode and Vgate and live near Pudsey.
Did 99% of that stuff on my car last night, really is dead easy...
I'm available most evenings, just PM me and we can maybe meet up someplace

Morning all, new to the forum game. Saw this thread so thought i’d join. I’ve got a Vgate and the Bimmercode app too, really quick and straightforward to use. I’ve added quite a few really useful and cool features to my F32. Also happy to help anyone out that wants some coding doing for a couple of beer tokens

Gonna do the tailgate open/close from front drivers switch but Bimmercode has a "known issue" with the tailgate module that will be sorted in the next release.

I've also made it harder for some scrote to plug something into the OBD by putting a cable tie around it.
You have to cut the tie off to be able to plug in.... not high tech but from what I've seen on youtube the preferred method is to smash the window, reach down, plug tool in and disable alarm and deadlocks.
My way they're gonna have to climb in the window, figure out why they can't plug the tool in then cut the tie off. Black cable tie on a black plug in a black compartment in a dark footwell, hopefully it'll be enough of a pain with the alarm going off that they'll walk away. Assuming I don't catch them in the act, they'll be lucky to ever walk again if I do
