What are few must items to code with Bimmercode

Just ordered UniCarScan from UK, my Vpack is not compatible with G series. So while I wait to receive the adapter what are few must items to code in 2019 G series.

You don't have much options to code for G30 because it's still new. the only thing I find useful to code right now is turn off auto start stop and active video in motion.

I tried coding my 18' M550i yesterday and for some reason the Alpina display doesn't come up. My car has almost every option short of DHP. Did the 18's have a different cluster? Is it my veepak/BimmerCode? I also wasn't able to turn the ASS feature off, but only have it memory to last setting. I don't like it but my wife swears it saves her mpg when she's stuck in traffic.

I think it's veepak. Was having similar issue and was not getting many options. I ordered a new one today.

I believe it's because 17-19 model is not a full screen cluster display. So it's not possible. ASS I have it memory last setting too so not to make it confuse you.

I think it depends on model. Some configurations got display without any plastic (silver circles on display) from July 18. At least I have full LCD.

The Bimmercode folks said that the G30 is a bit more restrictive on what you can code than some models. I did three simple things: Got rid of the legal warning that pops up from time to time on the screen, programmed the Auto Start/Stop (the aptly names ASS) to remember the last setting (if it was off when you turned the engine off, it will be off when you start again), and I also set the car driving mode default to Sport rather than comfort. I wanted to change the default distance setting on the cruise control but it is not possible on the G30 540. --Bob

E-Sys will allow you to code more than that.
- ACC default distance
- Ambient light

I have coded a lot of G30, F90, G14/G15, G05, G07, G01/G02.
All with E-Sys, so far been having a very good access to all of the modules.

What all can be done to ambient light with E-Sys? With BimmerCode it just gives you 3 or 4 additional colors you can pick from. One of them being red. I can't recall the other colors off the top of my head.

Any color that you want.
I don't know what are the BimmerCode's capability, I haven't play with it for a while.
You may be able to, but need to go to expert mode. Which, I've been reading that they are blocking it on some modules.

So I coded few things on my wife's 19, 540, and one of them was Alpina instrumental display. Told my buddy about it and he has a 20, M550, I guess it's with the new digital display like the new 3 series, and also wants to do the Alpina display. So just wondering if anyone else coded MY20 with this feature.

Be sure when coding the passenger ejector seat option that you make sure that the car is defined in the correct market, UK/Australia/SA versus North America. Don't want to eject yourself.

Seriously though, for me the must have coding options are:
-A.S.S.
-Disclaimer screen
-Digital speed in instrument cluster

The other stuff that I used to have to code are now iDrive options, which is nice.
