What of these options can you code on your tune?

· Sap delete (w/ readiness)

· Seatbelt chime disable for driver, passenger, or both seats.
· Disable iDrive disclaimer
· Windows Up & Down with key & comfort access
· Window safety feature (When window is rolling up, you can open the door without it stopping)
· Double Blinking Euro Hazards
· Brake Force Lights with regular brake lights
· Delete Amber front headlights (euro look)
· Alarm beep loudness adjust
· Remove Bulb Check Errors (IE Install of HIDs or LED lighting)

TThanks

I can do the SAP, but all the rest are not capabilities of my the nFlash tablet I use.

Now the Jim has responded... Did you know that you can set the other things you want via NCS Expert and NCS Dummy?

This is a far out question and I've no idea if it's possible on the BMW platform as I'm coming from Subaru's but are you able to program a valet parking mode?

A parking mode that cuts power so some young kid doesn't take my car around the corner and do burn outs.

Definitely possible, but would require reflashing to activate. For pre-LCI it's feasible, not as much for LCI due to flashing time.

Yes, this is possible, search the forums, but here is a good start

https://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e60...g-your-m5.html

and BMW Coding Forum for how to get setup. They will tell you what you need to code. FYI you cannot flash with the DCan cable only code.

Fast Attack Motorsports S85 V-10 Performance Tuning


Having spent years studying the internal workings of the Siemens MSS60 and MSS65 Digital Motor Electronics (DME) and their associated programming, we are proud to announce our performance DME tuning. Distributed with our η-Flash© Tablet, you can read your existing DME calibration, flash the modified calibration files, and check diagnostic codes.


Philosophy

As in most things we enter the market in, we approach things a bit differently with a clean slate. With this in mind, we have abandoned the traditional sales model for tuning in referring to "stages". The term is somewhat arbitrary and leads to misconceptions as to what the product is capable of. Gone also are the à la carte pricing for the somewhat mundane options available. Most of these changes are a few bytes of data changed here or there and represent no significant additional amount of work to enable or disable.


Performance

The bottom line in choosing an ECU calibration for almost everyone is performance. No matter how great a company's reputation, customer service, or choice of options, performance is the measure by which the product will be judged. While performance gains will vary from one engine to the next, horsepower gains of 25-30 HP can be expected on a stock engine without any supporting bolt-on upgrades. The throttle response is significantly improved as well as shift characteristics. We currently are offering calibration services for NA engines including tuning for increased displacement. Several of the recent 6.0L stroker engines built by Troy Jeup, LLC have used our tune with excellent results. Forced Induction offerings are in the works and expected to be available in the fall.

Passion

The S85 and S65 engines were the primary drivers for the formation of our company. They represent the last bastion of pure naturally aspirated BMW M Power and embody all the principles which vaulted BMW to the top of the motorsports world and performance car market. We have helped many owners over their years out of passion for the platform, long before the notion of forming a business even came to us. As a business, we carry this even further and will stand behind our product and support our customers.

Options

- Speed Limiter Removal: The factory DME limits the vehicle to 155 MPH via internal software. This option removes the limiters to allow exploring the upper end of what these vehicles are capable of. Please, use responsibly in a controlled environment such as on the race track or air strip.

- O2 Readiness Override (For off-road use only): One of the largest restrictions in the S85's airflow path is the close-coupled catalytic converters located in the headers. Many aftermarket off-road use headers remove the primary cats or replace them with high-flow race cats to allow the engine to breath better. This results in a "Service Engine Soon" light illuminated on the instrument cluster as the DME stores a code for "Catalytic Converter Efficiency" due to the increased oxygen present at the post-cat O2 sensors. This option removes the SES light generated by this condition to allow for other more significant error codes to alert the driver when something is wrong.

- Cold Start Delete: This option removes the catalytic converter heating routine which was implemented on most modern vehicles for the purpose of meeting ULEV and SULEV emissions certifications in the US. The US DOT set the requirements for these certifications so that a new vehicle entering the US market must meet the applicable emissions requirements within a short period of time after engine start from a cold condition. In order to achieve this, most all auto manufacturers relocated the catalytic converters as close to the engine as possible (in the actual exhaust manifold for most BMWs) and implemented a "Katheizen" (German for Cat Heating) routine in the DME. This Katheizen routine alters the exhaust valve timing, fuel injector pulse-width, and ignition timing to allow for incomplete combustion of a cylinder's air/fuel charge before entering the exhaust manifold where combustion continues, rapidly warming up the catalytic converter. This accounts for the "cold-start" sound of the S85 and rather rough running that occurs if driven away prior to completion of the cycle. Selecting this option disables the Katheizen routine entirely and has no negative effect whatsoever on the normal operation of the engine. In fact, it is our opinion that combined with the low cylinder pressures and higher than average oil consumption of the S85, that this routine may be a contributing factor in the short life-span of the primary cats many S85 owners have experienced over the years.

- RPM Limiter Raised: Standard option is for 8500 RPM. Please note this is primarily to allow for stretching out a gear a bit longer to allow coming into the next gear slightly higher in the power curve. The S85 torque and horsepower curves are already declining at this point due to restrictiveness of the intake tract.


Package
Our tuning product is packaged in the form a hand-held tablet. The tablet is used to perform the initial read of the vehicle and then connected to a PC for extraction of the base file. The base file is emailed to us and we make the modifications according to your options list and normally within 1-2 days we email a modified file package. These are loaded into the tablet via a PC and then flashed into the DME. The tablet is convenient as it can be kept in the glove box for handy use and switching between calibrations.

Pricing

Our tuning package is normally priced at $799 including the tablet, but we are offering it at $688 for M5 Board members for a limited time. Just enter the coupon code "M5BOARD" at checkout and to reflect the correct pricing.
