Happy to help anyone with the setup if they run into problems...

Will try and do the bulbs tomorrow afternoon, finally some sun tomorrow and will take some pics...

Lol... It was the fear of bricking vs the determination of having that logo!

Determination won! And has increased my confidence to do more coding! Done the DVD in motion and that works a treat too!!!!

1. PC (preferbaly a laptop to use in the car)
2. You need a ODB2 with Ethernet (Network) connection - 30 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/160973500135 or you can make it yourself cheaper.
3. E-sys Software. Free to download PM shawnsheridan for links
4. Dependant on the Build week of your car you may also need to purchase a Token. The new build after Jan / Feb 2013, require the later version of the software that requires a custom token 43 for 1st year
5. A little technical knowhow and away you go!!!

Where abouts in Lancashire did you say you were again?

Good work, we all knew you'd do it!! Looks like plenty of fun is to be had!! Darn, my May 2012 build 328i would require an older software version and token.

What are you doing to your fog lights? HID's?

Lol! Preston

Currently working on getting Video from my iphone 5. Seen a way on another forum to enable wifi and using DNLA stream video to the car...

So far enabled the WIFI and the car shows the phone attached via wifi, and sees the audio but having problems as skipping through the tracks... Will try another app on the iphone.

If i can get it too work, beats buying a 250+ media adapter whenever BMW decide to release...

Won't get a chance to play now for a few days..

Yes, but not in the way you would think. The car becomes the hotspot and you connect to it.

It's enabled through coding...
Under connections new setting "WIFI" is now enabled




The phone connects to the car's WIFI, not the other way...

I don't know to be honest. Still very early in my testing and configuring. The main reason for me to do this isn't to use the Car's connection, but to connect the car & phone to play video.

venkata ,this is impressive stuff. Does a list exist which lists every coding option available ? Presumably you could ask your local BMW stealer (for a fee) to enable some of the options but realise they wouldn't do the video in motion for safety reasons.

The f30 coding section under these forums has a cheat list. Trawling through web on the other forums and seeing what each option does.

I would be very surprised if a stealer would do this for any price to be honest...
