F25 Coding Wishlist & Findings

Wanted to start this thread for pure coding options since others are dedicated for installing software and finding cables, etc.

Here are some items (wishlist) I would like coded on the X3:

Gauge Needle Sweep on startup
Ambient Footwell Lighting
Auto release of Parking Brake without Seatbelt on
Sport Steering setting without Perf Control switch
Digital Speed display (no HUD)
Foglights stay on with Highbeams
Remember last heated seat setting (always)
Be able to adjust where air flows without taking fan out of automatic
Radio to scroll song/artist info on preset screen instead of having to go to station info screen.


I know some of these codes are on various cheat sheets but want to verify if they will work on F25 chassis. Please post and findings and your own wishlists so we can find more exciting options!

I successfully activated "Digital Speed in BC" on the F25 x3.

KOMBI | 3000 Anzeige_Konfiguration | BC_DIGITAL_V | aktiv / Werte=01 | ( default = nicht_aktiv / Werte=00 )

I was able to verify the F10 Cheat sheet on the link below works for F25 as well.

http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=696777

I successfully coded the following:

Seat Belt gong removed
Remote/Comfort open & close mirrors, windows, sunroof.
Remote close tailgate
Remove disclaimer on startup & PDC
Fog lights on with high beams
Remember last heated seat setting always
Sport Display
Digital Speed in gauge cluster
Tire Pressure and Temp display

I know there are tons more coding options and hopefully they will keep being discovered. Please post here successful F25 codes!

Did more coding last night and did soft on for welcome lights including fog lights. Like how they soft off also in sequence. Also adjusted when low fuel warning comes on but can't confirm until tank gets empty.

What didn't work on F25 was:
Gear Display in Sport mode (still shows DS)
Does not remember last heated seat setting (over few hours)

Fogs on with high beams give you a much better view of the road because you have both near and far bright! Like the old cars that had separate bulbs for low & high beams and kept low beams on with high beams.

I'd like to see a coding option that defaults the auto start-stop to off.

That is a coding option listed on the cheat sheet in the link above. I have a 2012 so didn't have to worry about the start-stop feature.

Did you actually get the tire temp and pressure to work ... When I tried it on mine I just got dashes and no values even after driving for a while. I concluded that I don't have the right sensors ...

Yes, temp & pressure worked on mine. Can't believe they don't have this activated already!

Radio coding

OK So I know this one will be very difficult to get a response on, but here goes...

Still new to the coding issue and I am in the process of getting the E-sys and other programs d/l and installed. I too want to "fix" a few things, like the auto start/stop, tailgate closing and DVD motion hack. BUT here is the biggie!

I have a new US spec X3 and I live in Germany (work for the Army). I want to change the frequency spacing on the FM radio. My unit is for the US and the spacing is 200khz (I believe), i.e. 101.1 101.3 101.5 etc. In Europe they use 50khz spacing i.e. 101.1 101.15 101.2 101.25 101.3 etc. May radio stations use the "even" frequency numbers (101.2 101.4 101.6 etc) that my radio cannot get (at least very well) I have been told that this can be changed in the coding, but of course, no one in the US has this issue and probably no one even knows where it is coded. So I'll just ask and HOPE that someone might have a clue. (fingers crossed)

THANKS for ANY help/support/advice!

You may want to try
HU_CICHB
3002 AUDIO_TUNER_TRAFFIC
DAB_LAENDERVARIANTEN

this is a country specific adoption of the frequency band and has the following options
nicht aktiv
australien
ece
korea
kanada
singapur

there are also three FM band settings, but no description. thaey are as follows with the defaults from my vehicle.

FM_BAND_LW nicht aktiv
FM_BAND_MW aktiv
FM_BAND_KW nicht aktiv

Radio frequencies

Thanks for the assistance

Its certainly worth a look.

Kinda odd that "USA" is not listed - but perhaps its the same a Kanada.
"ece" COULD be Europe - it kinda fits.

Traffic info frequencies are definately different in Europe from the US - that would explain that one.

Generally in Europe, the abbreviation LW is for Long Wave bands (below our AM), MW is medium wave (our AM) and KW...?? I have no idea. (SW would be Short Wave - but of course, its not on that list). Many/most aftermarket radios here have the LW band. I have a new Kenwood aftermarket unit in my Passat with that.

Will keep looking.... Thanks again!!

OK how about

HU_CICHB
3002
RADIO_COUNTRY (Radio Country for FM/AM Radio)

variants include
us
ece
japan
australien

Update: I changed this to ece and it gives even numbered frequencies.

AWESOME!!!!

Even numbered frequencies are what I need!

Thanks - I will try to get that to work for me.

Also If you want to have a bit of "fun" you might try going into the AM (MW) wave settings and also set to "ece" and see what you get. IF I am right the spacing between the AM radio stations will be 9khz apart rather than 10. If it works correctly you will get frequencies such as 1107, 873 and so forth - rather than 1100, 1110, 1120, 870, 880 etc. In Germany that is how the MW band frequencies are spaced.

No worries. It was easy for me to translate as I know German and have worked with German companies.

Anyone know of any auto shops in Staten Island, NY that can code BMWs? I heard of Mobile-Addictions, gonna call them tomorrow, but was wondering if anyone has any additional suggestions?
