For those of you that are interested, I received the following confirmation from the developer of BimmerCode that if you make changes to the vehicle order file it does not affect BimmerCode's ability to function after:

"Hi,
changing the VO will not affect BimmerCode. It is doing changes to the headunit applying USB patches."

I read on another forum here that doing some of the changes I want to do (anti-dazzle, etc.) would impact BimmerCode since those require making changes to the vehicle order. This is great news.

Coding NGHB does not change VO written to vehicle (if done right).

Is coding SLI would impact BimmerCode functionality?

Or after coding and activating SLI and if I use to do some coding with BimmerCode will I delete anything related with SLI???

What if I restore a ECU with BimmerCode? Is it only changing the already modified values by itself to their original values? Or is it rewriting the original ECU image?

Each backup only restores the changes that were made during that session.

Thanks

And what should I be careful about while coding with BimmerCode after having SLI coded remotely?
