e70 35d shipped to europe, euro mods,DPF

Renamed the thread now that the mods are done and/or underway and car arrived.


Need a little help from the community on coding for euro use.

I will ship my e70 by around the beginning of May but I have realized that I need to get the yellow corner markers off so they only function as indicators.

Those that have installed a Euro light switch for the rear fog light to work, does that require coding or just plug and play?

I have software and cable but I only use it to read fault codes so I can do battle with service advisors, i dont want to mess up the coding...


Anyone aware of a good coder in Maryland/Virginia area?? I'm willing to pay for the service. Thx in advance!!

I have the Romanian package which includes NCSExpert. Is there a useful guide somewhere how to use it? Until now I have only really wanted to read fault codes but I am forced to do this now, otherwise I won't be able to register it in Europe.....

I installed the European headlamp switch and no programming was required for the rear fog lights to function. Just a few feet of wire and pin contacts for the switch and FRM connectors. 8/2011 35d

Great! Thx.



I have been reading this afternoon and my NCSExpert has several profiles already installed. So, I guess I just need to work up some courage to get going on it....

if you can't find Revtor's profile, I can send it to you in a few hours.

EDIT:

Thanks all for encouraging me to do this myself. There are a couple of videos on YouTube that really make this plausible. I started by reading the FRMbut held off on writing to the FRM until I had double checked everything twice. As suggested by one person on bimmers, I created backups of the trace files and kept them in a separate folder.

Once I was sure I understood the sequence, I decided to also switch off the FL/NSW block and the LH/NSW block. Loaded it to the car and BINGO. I noticed that the car no longer turns on lights upon unlocking tho. Not sure why that is off as I don't think I changed anything to do with that.

After dinner decided to go for broke and do the HKL to enable closing the rear hatch with key fob and dash button. (Now will feel drivenn to do same on my Cayenne!)

Tomorrow I will hook up one more time and delete some of the LDs.

You're doing it right: don't change stuff at random to see what happens. Stick to what you learned and do it step by step (so, readout, change, code, check) so you see what change does what.



whereto in Europe? enough coders here too.

Temporarily on 87s

BMT - I was born in NL's NE and now taking up residence in Portugal. I think I have the coding under control now...:-)
I coded the rear hatch and it closes nicely with the button on the dash and with the remote. Very happy with that, still need to get back to it and delete the disclaimers.
Last weekend did a few small things in the front suspension, the horrible rattling was cured with new rubber dishes under the nut of the damper shaft. New stabilizer end links also helped. New brakes all around. Next is the rear suspension. First need to remember how to release the pressure in the airbags so I can have a better sense of what needs work in there.
The snow tires on my 20s were getting horribly noisy and I put a set of 87s on the E70. (I picked up the 87s for my e53 but it is still undergoing surgery) Here is a pic from this morning.
