Thanks Jlf74100k!

We've reached 10 which means price will even be lower for each cable.

As I have mentioned on my previous post - I will wait a week, then arrange with the seller to provide us instructions on how to place our orders.

Most likely, if the seller can arrange it - we can start placing our orders on Monday next week, Feb 28.

Update on cable order.

I have sent an eMail to the cable seller letting her know we now have a minimum of 10 people ready to place their orders.

I have asked for revised pricing and shipping information; and instructions on how to place our orders.

I mentioned to her that an eBay sale with PayPal payment is the easiest and preferred.

I will keep you folks posted.

You're welcome Milton!

All the biggest thanks of course goes to Zerocks1 / Alan for the hundreds of hours he spent researching all of this to make it work for our M6.

To the best of my knowledge - this is the very 1st time ever someone was able to figure out how to recode an E63 M6 software.

Thank you Alan!

I promised him dinner with me and my wife and a personal tour of Seattle whenever he comes visit Seattle.

Dan,

Thanks for handling this!!

Milton

Auto light sensor sensitivity headlights --------on/off at better intervals ------------RLS
Notepad Icon in iDrive --------------Shows a Notepad option------- CAPPL (trying to get handheld to diplay)

bc real korrectur Display----------------- shows acurrate digital speed -------------KOMBI
HUD directional diaply------------------- arrows show on HUD ---------------------- HUD
Seat belt not fastened gong-------------- two gongs vs always-------------------- ABG
Gong when key in Ign and door opened-------- no more gong ------------------ KOMBI
iDrive legal disclaimer------------------------ gone----------------------------- CAPPL
iDrive screen default on startup------------- your choice (NAV, ENT, etc)-------- CAPPL

HUD displays Entertainment not working yet, but Im pursuing it------------- HUD
Light bulb testing cant get LMA module to read but I have an idea------------LMA

start w/out pressing brake------------ Have this working but oddly you have to press the brake to turn off the car, so I returned this until I figure that out

Exciting huh!

This list is great, has anyone looked at mirrors folding with remote? I've seen it posted on other forums but not for the E63.

Randy, the mirror folding module is the KGM Module. It's the line of code
beiklappen_b_komfortsch
change nicht_aktiv > aktiv. (save as a .MAN file, and write back to KGM module). once you get SW and cable you will understand that sequence.

I changed it on my Cab, and supposedly holding the key fob close for approx 2 seconds, closes the windows and the mirrors. Open does the opposite. I've seen this work in person on an M5. I have a Cab with an aftermarket module for a one touch open/close softtop (mods4cars.com module), and I think that is having a conflict with the code I changed. That module required a small wiring change in the same module the key fob talks to, so I think its my cars issue not the code issue

Hoping someone else can try this on both an E63-64. Theoretically, it should work. I'm trying to find a guinea pig in L.A. so I can test it.
