Questions about ASD and BimmerCode and BimmerLink.

Hi guys,




I know that the ASD topic has been beaten to death, but I feel like I have a unique question about it that I haven't seen in any other threads regarding it.


So, I purchased my 2013 M5 two weeks ago. It's a fabulous car, but I am absolutely astonished at how quiet it is from within the cabin. I mean, I can hear a bit of the exhaust and shifts and turbo whine, but I basically cannot hear any engine note unless I'm upward towards redline. Even then it's quiet! Is this normal?? So I suspected that the previous owner turned ASD off, so first I pulled back the trunk liner to see if the ASD was plugged in. Sure enough, it was. So then I figured he coded it off. So, I purchased an OBD plugin, and downloaded BimmerCode... But I've noticed in the app, you can only turn ASD OFF. In order to turn it on, you need a backup file. But my point is I don't have a backup file. I'm a new owner to this car and I've never connected to it before, so how am I supposed to turn ASD back on? I e-mailed BimmerCode's tech support and the guy hasn't been of much help. His answers are short, and did not provide results when I tried them.


So I downloaded BimmerLink for nearly $30.00, thinking that the apps simple "On/Off" switch of ASD would help. Well, it didn't. Either which way I put it, the car is as quiet as a mouse. No change. It's so weird. My 2008 M5 sounded incredibley beautiful from within the cabin. It was a monster. My F10... It's like I'm riding in a sound bubble.


Is this normal? Are these cars really this quiet? If not, how the heck do I turn ASD back on without a backup file!?




Thanks guys.

Will Carly allow me to turn it back on (if it is indeed off) without a backup like BimmerCode requires? BimmerLink was no help in this respect.

Not really, other than checking to see if the ASD was plugged in properly, which it was. How else do you check it? What would I be looking for exactly?
