WOW! What a difference with Sport Plus coded! Do you all drive around in Plus all the time? I noticed rpms are around 3-4k all the time. But the pops and crackles are awesome!

Next coding I'll been doing is Comfort Plus and to go back to the basic live cockpit to get back the motorsport colors and code the M logo at the top. With the M Cluster I do miss it not telling me what driving mode the car is in. Thank you all for figuring this out!

Now I need to figure out how to get the front camera to activate sooner.

I’m new to BimmerCode - just how reliable is the whole process? I am considering buying the app because it seems that coding in Sport + really awakens the car. Does anyone know if the Sport + is just “unlocked” and is the same as the stock programming on certain Euro spec models? Or is it coded to perform similarly? Also, how easy is it to do? It seems like you just connect your phone via the OBD2 port and click a few buttons..

Appreciate any insight!

I've just coded it today on my 320D in NZ and it's certainly made quite a big difference in the response of the engine and shift speed of the trans. Well worth it. Literally as easy as clicking a few buttons. Also coded in 'Tesla mode' while I was at it and managed to get Android auto working with my Huawei P30 which I was told wasn't possible, successful day!

How did you get the P30 to work with Android Auto? Whilst I can get my car to connect to the phone, none of the android auto apps work because its trying to draw Internet connection from the cars WiFi. Only Google Maps works (although not to search for an address hah)

I'm using an app called speedify. Uses channel bonding to combine wifi and data networks. Only downside is the free version is limited to 2gb per month but it works flawlessly. Still on the hunt for a free app that does the same thing but unlimited

Does anyone know if this is doable on G20 with iDrive 6?

I have a 320i, produced in Aug 2019, I didn't pick ConnectedDrive Pro and back then they came with iDrive 6 (probably my biggest mistake when configuring the car).

Did you code in android auto? Or did you get a software update that enabled android auto?

I'm hoping someone can help, I have a 2019 330. Downloaded the bimmercode app, joined the beta and have the OBDlink LX adapter for android devices.

When I try to code sport + in bummer code I click on BDC and the app takes its time to load and then I get an error that it cannot access code data. Other parts of bimmercode work such as the instrument cluster but not BDC.
Any suggestions??

Forgot to mention, I did purchase the full version of the app

It used to happen to me too. All I needed to do was close and open bimmercode a few times for it to work. If you have a Samsung phone, I suggest you return the LX and get a wired enet cable and usb c to lan adapter. So much better!

Nope. I became a beta tester via the option in Google play. I didn't need to email him. That's only for people on ios

I didn’t see Sport + on the list of supported coding options for the G chassis - is this done solely through expert mode?

The Xtraboost option is the same as sport+ and waaay faster. I had the 330e for about 10days as a loaner.
Only sport+ on my 330i sounds better due to the exhaust. The 330e doesn't sound anything like it but the Xtraboost is compareable to Sport+
