Anyone knows how to change the colours for the led interior?
Successfully change the colours on a G11 7series with BimmerCode a few days ago.
But in the G20 you don't have the same options.

Tried to change the setting for Ambiente_farbe_fes_sport but doesn't change when switching to sport mode.

What interior LED colors? You mean ambient lighting? Are you talking about more options than what BMW gives?

Yes ambient lighting.
In other G-Series you can adjust the color to whatever you want.
YOu see in the screenshot I posted before that you can ajust Red Green and Blue to mix the color you want. But is not the same menu as for example the G11 had.

My 330i has a few different options. Around 10 IIRC. But it’s not like Audi or Mercedes where you can mix and choose colors.

Also, I spoke to Stephan and he said test flight isn’t available for Android and only for Apple?

I got an update yesterday saying G20 3 series body domain controller coding was available. I updated it both on google play as well as via the app.

However, opened the app today and found no green dot next to BDC. It said ECU was not supported. I really want to code my car to start up in sport mode.

Anyone here having an android phone and app tried it on their car?

similar issue as well! Emailed them for test flight, got a quick response saying only certain modules are supported. I was told to upgrade to obdlink MX+ bluetooth to fully support g series. Vgate is no longer recommended.

I returned my vgate and got an obdlink lx. Vgate was WiFi and this one is Bluetooth. Vgate accessed stuff faster but yes. No other complaints with my obdlink so far.

Whats the difference between the 3 OBDLink adapters they recommend? Just letters to me and different prices. LX, MX, MX+. Will the cheaper ones not be able to code certain modules on G series?

If you have an android phone, LX is more than enough for your BMW. I got the LX by mistake instead of the MX and they refunded the price difference.

MX has some extra functions for GM and Ford cars as well as transmission diagnostics.
MX+ works with iPhone as well (MX and LX are for android phones).
