Cool Bimmercode App M5

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hello, I'm new to this forum and just took possession of a fully loaded 2018 M5. I was wondering if anyone has used Bimmercode successfully on their M5 and if so, what did you change? As a side note, I ordered the RaceChip GTS that I'm anxious to install. Would love to gather peoples thoughts...

p.s. I know this isn't the best photo...

Used it plenty. Works great but you have to make sure to get a UNicarscan adapter. In the last iOS update it was clearly indicated that you needed this tool to access all the modules.

Here is what I have done

ASD off
Full text message
Ambient light red
Adjust the angle of passenger mirror tilt on reverse
Opted out of warning message on startup
Seat belt warning off
Zoom in rear camera
M animation on IDrive
Flashing brake force display
Lane departure warning at 55 km/h

There is a few other things but off the top of my head that's it

Ö I don't know if you can do VO code outside of E-Sys.

Google translate works pretty good. That's how I managed. They respond to emails in English if ever

I'd have to plug it in to see. I can check for you in the morning.

Bimmercode doesn't do VO coding.
And it is still limited, unlike E-Sys.
I have suspicion that Carly and Bimmercode who made Tokenmaster not opening his Launcher for public anymore. Since those two companies are making money out of his work.

The break light flashing is under the BDC module.

Not sure about the anti dazzle. These are standard in Canada.

I have the "vgate" obd adapter which worked fine with Bimmercode on the F10 m5.....but now certain coding sections give the error "a unicarscan or obdlink adapter is required for conding this control unit" .....which adapter models have you purchased in USA that works? any amazon link?

I am in Texas, and ended up buying a UniCarScan unit from this outfit in Germany:
https://www.obd-2.de/shop/profi-diag...iagnoseadapter
You can copy and paste the link in Google Translate to read the site in English, or some browsers will do the translation for you. Smooth transaction for me -- no problems. It took a couple of weeks to get the unit delivered. It's worked very well with Bimmercode for me.

If you're adamant about buying from a US site, Bimmercode says this one works (Amazon link):
https://www.amazon.com/OBDLink-Bluet.../dp/B07JFRFJG6

Good luck,
B B

You were able to code the full anti-dazzle headlights using the Bimmercode App?

Can confirm that OBDLink MX+ works with Bimmercode.

Did ASD, different ambient lighting color, startup message, lane departure.

Now just need to figure out what some of the other items are.

No. Partially done using E-sys but it's not perfect.
