And bimmercode seems to have got a new update yesterday. Updated the app via google play but when I open it, it asks me to update it again in order to continue using it. When I try updating it via the app, it gets stuck at 0% and then says failed. Looks like it's $38 down the drain?
Contact Bimmercode. They will help you get the app back.

I think this is a bug with an earlier version of iDrive. I have the Alpina cluster and my digital and analog are always the same value. What version are you on?

New member with a 2020 330i. I was under the impression after some searching threads that using Bimmercode, ASS could be set to off as a default in either of the 3 drive modes SPORT/COMFORT/ECO. However after i used Bimmercode i see that ASS only defaults off in Sport or Comfort and when i go to Eco mode ASS comes back on and has to be manually turned off via the button. I contacted Bimmercode about this and this was their response:

"SSA is enabled automatically again in ECO mode. This is the default behavior and can not be changed."

Does this seem correct ?

Yes. You can code the ASS button to remember it's last setting when you turn the car back on, but can't really turn it permanently off using Bimmercode AFAIK.

This is a total newbie question, but I'll be picking up my 2020 330i next week and will want to disable auto start stop. With Bimmercode, aside from downloading the ios app, what hardware will I need to purchase and how/where do I connect it to the car?

You'll need an OBD port adapter that works with Bimmercode. The supported list off of their web page is here:

https://bimmercode.app/adapters/

Edit: just to be clear, you can purchase the adapters anywhere, I got mine off of Amazon.

The DME needs a fast adapter I suggest getting the OBDLink MX+

Sorry, one more follow up newbie question. Once I have the adapter, what do I do with it? Does it connect to something in the car?

It plugs into the OBD port located under the dash on the drivers side.

It connects to the port circled in red, under the storage compartment on the driver’s side (image credit to respective owner).

I use a vgate icar2 wifi adapter. Even though bimmercode says it doesn’t work, it does. I got mine last month off of amazon and it is still working perfectly. No idea about the longevity though.

Does anyone know if you can code enhanced Bluetooth in a G20. Ive done this in previous cars but don't seem to see the option on bimmercode. I've just ordered a 330e M Sport so wondering if I need to change the order and tick the enhanced Bluetooth option.

I have the beta version of Bimmercode 3.5 and I don't see it as a coding option there. Maybe one of the other platforms like Carly or Esys ?

Maybe Stephan removed it? You can mail him from the app and ask him. He responds pretty fast.

He did indeed. Unfortunately not available now but might be available in future. I've therefore ticked the advanced Bluetooth option.
