Gloss Black Exhaust Tip (I will create the DIY thread separately)

Got some coding done today.
Some cool features are already enabled by BMW, good job.

Available by default:
- Window roll down and up via keyfob
- Side mirror fold when door locked

Coded today that are successfully tested:
- Disable disclaimer screen
- Change the splash screen to M Sport
- Tire temperature
- Sport display color change to silver
- Enable window roll down when door open
- Rear camera view with trailer

Some coding that haven't been tested:
- Video in motion (Confirmed that it doesn't work on iDrive5.0 and iDrive6.0)
- Anti Dazzle LED function


Here is the video on the M Splash screen.

I assume the wheels are the FF01 in 20x9 ET25 and 20x10.5 ET35, but I'm not sure. If it is, the fitment look similar to the F10.

Yes, the wheels size are 20x9 +25 front and 20x10.5 +35 rear.
Tire sizes are 245/35-20 and 285/30-20.

Let me know if any of you guys interested, I can get them.

I haven't test the Anti-Dazzle. Living in a city and currently on DST, it is very hard to do a test.
But I use the same coding steps as I did on my F15 X5 and F06 650GC. Both works "ok" as I rarely used it or really spend time in testing it.

How to do VIM in Apple CarPlay?

If you do these mods to the car doesn't it completely void the warranty? I went to get mine remapped but was advised by the store that if its done BMW will know with these new connected drive cars and would completely invalidate the warranty?

They don't have the right to void warranty until they able to prove it that the mods indeed the one that causing the car malfunction.

If you mean by remapped is opening up the ECU and do a flash, then yes, your warranty is fully void since you tampered with their security protection.
