MINI / BMW coding interest

Update: Mark your calendars! The date for this event will be June 2! Coding will be on a first come first served schedule starting at 10am. See you there!!

We’re thinking of hosting a coding day sometime in late May or early June. Similar to our garage day last year, this event will be about coding the MINI computer rather than making mechanical modifications.

Ram from Madison will be visiting us here in Chicago to facilitate this event.

Ram has a list of BMW and MINI codes on his website (and also on NAM for 2nd generation and 1st generation MINIs). Some popular options include:

  • Turn off bulb checks (for those that want to use LED lights without resistors)
  • Removal of navigation disclaimer
  • Side mirrors auto folding on lock and unlock (BMW only)
  • Auto closing of sunroof when rain is detected
  • Enabling rear fogs

Not all codes work on all MINIs and several factors including your MINIs build date, factory options and other variables determine compatibility.

If you’re interested please reply to this post the following:

  • Your MINI/BMW year (build date if you know)
  • Your MINI/BMW model
  • What coding option(s) are you interested in?

Pricing for codes will be $10/option or $50 per car if you want more than 5 options coded.

  • Nat

    I’m interested in rear fogs, disabling nav disclaimer, closing windows/sunroof with key fob, mirror folding, etc. for my ’12 S. Preferred dates are 5/25 or 26, 6/1 or 6/8.

  • Eric T

    2011 JCW R56, Side Mirrors auto fold, Auto Sport Mode on ignition.

  • Joe

    I’d be interested in getting this done. Most likely on the 25-26 where would you be doing this at?

    • No location yet. We’ll have one set in the next couple of weeks.

  • Demetri Kundanis

    june 1st or 2nd are good for me, can he turn off the air bag light for aftermarket seats?

    • BMW-MINI Coding

      I haven’t done that unless if you can find the instruction.

  • Paul

    Either date would work for me. I would like to get my 13 R58S to fold/unfold mirrors automatically.

  • BMW-MINI Coding

    Guys, the folding mirrors on the MINI are NOT connected to the FRM. MINIs have an independent module to control the folding function, which is however NOT connected to the CAN network. Therefore no automation is possible and you can’t open or close the mirrors with your keyfob.

  • Shawn

    June 2nd is the only day that works for me. I’ll keep my fingers crossed it ends up being that day.

  • Scott Dueball

    June 1, 2, 8, or 9 for me. I have an 07 R56s and I would like the autoclose windows and roof with lock, one touch sun roof, disable passenger seatbelt.

  • Chris Hollister

    I’m interested in the nav disclaimer, windows up w/ key fob, and autosport. Where will this be happening at?

    • CMMC_Steve

      Looking like the date will be Sunday June 2nd and location will be in Skokie. We’ll have a modified post up soon..

  • Shawn

    Question – on the NAM link option #40 “enable memory function of MSA start/stop button” mean? I have a 2007 MCS auto.

    • BMW-MINI Coding

      It is called Auto Start Stop function. The car decides when to switch off the engine (based on the charge of the battery, load, outside temperature, etc). When everything’s working correctly, it’ll switch off the engine when you pop it in neutral (with the clutch up) and then restart when you depress the clutch to select 1st gear.

      • Shawn

        Thanks. I have an automatic, so I don’t see the need for this for me.
        I would like coded to my 2007 R56-S, I can find out build date if it’s necessary.

        1. Remote close windows
        2. Auto unlock
        3. Power window after ignition off
        4. Always show digital speed
        5. Disable speed overestimation
        6. Opening door will not interrupt window operation
        7. Double flash hazzards
        8. Disable A/C engage with auto climate
        9. Enable alarm system
        10. One touch windows up.

        Would that be asking too much, or is that OK?
