coding

has anyone done any coding on the 2 GC? I have the bimmercode app on my phone and used it to code lots of stuff on my M240i. however plugged it in the other day on my wife's new m235i GC and there seemed to be very few options to change, which was kind of a bummer.

What were the options? Hopefully, start/stop deactivation was one of them.

I did the start/stop. What else are you looking to do? The changes I made to my 340 like tire temp are already on in the M235.
Thanks!

I wanted to change the coding for idrive so it shuts off when you open your door. I did this on my m240i and I really like it. also, what about rear fog lights on this car? I coded those on as well in my m240.

I'm not sure. hoping someone on here knows. my m240i has them but had to modify the switch and do coding to be able to turn them on.

Same car as M135i F40 essentially, so there's a few nice touches to code.

Add Sport Plus
Add Comfort Plus
Put M logo on idrive screen
Add Sporty setting to Engine sound (this will keep exhaust valve open all the time)
Change dash to M dash
Disable electric window opening again whilst closing and you open door, which annoyingly stops it closing and it starts opening again!
Disable ASD
Disable start/stop
Choose default driving mode - I have Sport Individual as the default

I don't recall seeing all these coding options when trying recently to code my m235i GC. which coding app and adapter are you using?

Bimmercode Expert mode must be switched on. The codings are there. Using one of the high end adapters as the cheaper ones have aome restricted access. Unicarscan from Germany, cost 50 Euros, so around £46 for me

I coded the following today using the Bimmercode App:
Auto Start/Stop
Display Layout
Start Logo
One Touch Turn Signal
Warning At Startup Animation
Wanted to change default start up to Sport Mode but could not access the Body Domain Controller Unit (see my thread)
