BimmerCode now supports E series

I already have BimmerCode for the M2. The last update included support for E series so i decided to check it out.
There isn't nearly as much as you can do with newer car models but I turned off the passenger seat belt chime. I have a bad occupancy sensor on that side. I also turned on Digital MPH display between the two gauges so now when you hit the button on the end of the turn signal stalk, MPH is now one of the options.
Other than that, most of the other options are available in iDrive

Nice to be able to change a few things if you already have BimmerCode for another vehicle but definitely not worth purchasing exclusively for the e70

No it's not free. I think it was $27 for the app and $40 for the blue tooth OBDII adapter

So is anyone else using this currently? Looks like it covers a lot of my list of things I'd like to do, but not sure about all of it. Hesitant to drop the money without verification from someone who has used it on the e70 LCi

All feedback Welcomed. My List of Coding wants (that I know of for now)..
  • Disable Passenger Seat Belt Warning
  • Disable Fog lamps with turning
  • Disable Entry/Access mode of Steering column
  • Disable iDrive Warning Message on Start-up
  • Enable Windows Close from Key
  • Enable Euro Hazards (Double Flash)
  • Enable Mirror fold with long press of lock button
  • Enable weather band
  • Enable rear hatch close with console button/or fob,
  • Show Tire PSI/Temp in iDrive
  • Enable iDrive Video while moving


May also be interested in coding out bulb tests to go to LED brake lights and turn signal bulbs as well..

Check his website. The last update added a lot more for the E series. There is a list of what it can do.
Itís a good program if all you want to do is go n your list.
For more serious coding, Iíd look into Protools. That program will get very deep into all of the modules and you can do some serious coding with it. It also does data logging as well. Protools is what I use now as Iíve had to get pretty deep into the modules to resolve some issues, reset DTC data logging of boost, fuel pressure, etc

I guess given the relatively minor cost, I should just give it a go. Was trying to find an OBDII adapter that was on both the BimmerCode and the xHP Flash Tool list, but it seems like I'm going to need to buy two separate ones, which is a bit of a disappointment..

And since I'm going to have to pick-up an android tablet eventually to do a Trans Tune, do I go IOS or Android BimmerCode.. LOL! Decisions, decisions..

I have BimmerCode on IOS simply because thatís the phone I use. Since Protools is Android only, I had to use an old Galaxy note 3 I had laying around. No need to active the phone though, it works on WiFi only. If youíre looking for a used android device, make sure itís V.5 or above. You need the proper USB support for the cable to work. I also used it for XHP

Same. I have Carly but don’t want to pay a second year for $50. I bought the $30 adapter.
