Recode Anti-Dazzle High Beams?

So I see that 5AP(Decoding for no-dazzle hgh bm) and 8S4(Variable light decoding) are on my order sheet. As I understand it, these “options” disable the intelligent headlight tech where the high beam is split for cars in front of you and oncoming traffic.

Will some kind hearted soul provide a rundown for a coding newbie on how to recode the anti-dazzle feature on an X3?

In some cases, it's all in software, in others, it can also require additional equipment (maybe a motor or control box). So, it will be interesting to see if it can be done with just s/w.

In either case, at least for now, since it hasn't been approved by the DOT, while unlikely, it could create problems for you if it were implemented. Personally, I think it is really neat tech, and if I had laser based headlights or a system that could support the feature, I'd want their full functionality, too.

Others were able to do it for the 3 series, but I am not sure if the coding would be the same for the X3.

Has anyone figure this out... there is a module involved in the F30 that does note exist on the LCI X3. FEMBODY... has anyone figured out how to turn this feature on...?


Update: FRM is the module you will work on equivalent to FEM_BODY
