Yes. Expert mode present. Do you run your bimmercode on an Android or apple device?

I reinstalled the app and it worked!
I found additonal settings that possibly helped.

Hifi System m340i

"Booster" set to mid
LAZ (no idea what that is) Set it to 2 zones
Multichannel "Active"

Im pretty sure I got some audio gains, but it might be all in head lol

If you haven't, you can try updating Bimmercode. The app has been updated weeks ago to support Beta Mode for the module relevant for this action(HGU_MGU if I'm not wrong).

This is in my car. Not sure how it works for others with the HiFi system.
HiFi system powers all the speakers with the RAM. Top HiFi HK and the B&W have the woofers powered by a Booster and all other speakers by the RAM.

Coding the RAM from HiFi to HK enables the 7-Band EQ, but in the HiFi there is only a RAM and no Booster -the 7-Band EQ only works with the Booster + RAM (Top HiFi). So the output stays HiFi (all speakers powered by the RAM), and the 7-Band EQ is only a display of the Bass and Treble adjustment of the HiFi.

This is the reason only two bands work with this coding -the Bass (Band 1) and the Treble (Band 7).

That clarifies why it won’t work with the HiFi system! Someone said they have the Hifi system and it worked for them whereas it didn’t for me.

It cannot work without the Booster.

Be grateful that the HiFi RAM does not behave like the Top HiFi RAM after this coding, as there will be no bass from the woofers.

I’ve coded it today - sounds a lot better on HK.
Is it true that this coding left an error code “wrong amplifier” in memory?

Bimmercode with an enet cable or a wifi obd cable. Check the Bimmercode website. They have a lost of recommended adapters.
