    I have an 07 328i and I like the automatic wipers by pushing in the switch on the right steering wheel shaft thing. I also like putting the car in DS by pushing the auto shifter to the left, and if you push it over to the left twice puts it in manual mode, only good for upshifting since it will automatically downshift. BUT I can not find some cool hidden function in iDrive.

    I got the iDrive software update but still missing these functions. I googled and got a kit to make all these done.


    Equipment:
    BMW Easycoding kit

    1) Locate your BMW OBD port
    2) Connect the easycoding cable into the OBD socket
    3) Install easycoding software
    4) Enter the main function and follow the screen notice

    What have been achieved:

    What I have found was that it is actually a diagnostic kit, can project basic DTCs, displaying live data etc as other diagnostics systems. It helped realized all i mentioned above.

    MORE ACHIEVEMENTS:

    disable reversing camera warning window
    set lock alarm sound volume freely
    clean head lamps
    disable DTLs
    disable iDrive disclaimer
    change km to mile
    some Bluetooth setting (ringtone etc)

    It can be done with a diy ENET connector and free E sys software on 5 series, costs even less.
