Coding event June 2nd

 

WRAPUP: We had almost 20 MINIs show up on a cold drizzly day.. Ram enabled many options.. several people came back for additional choices after seeing how cool they looked and worked on other cars.  A BBQ lunch followed, and a fun time was had by all.  Huge thanks to Ram from http://www.bmwminicoding.com/ for driving out from Madison and working all day setting options, and to Paul for organizing this event and doing all the cooking!!

Send links to photos to steve@chicagominiclub.com and we will add them here

UPDATE 05/14/2013  Location details have been sent out to all who have commented here thru today.  If you did not get the details, or would like to get in on the action, send an e-mail to steve@chicagominiclub.com

Reposting with info from the prior post to make sure we get everyone who is able to make this event. Please add a comment on this post if you are interested.

Ram from http://www.bmwminicoding.com/ will be in town to program options to change some settings in our Gen1 or Gen2 MINI.

WHEN:  Sunday June 2nd, 9am till when we are done.

WHAT: 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.

WHERE: Skokie area. Specific address details will be e-mailed in the final 2 weeks prior to the event.

QUESTIONS: Add a comment with your questions or send an e-mail to Ram at  bmwminicoding@gmail.com

Add a comment to let us know you are interesdted in attending. Come on out to get codes changed on your MINI or just to hang out and watch.

We are planning on doing up a little casual grilling for lunch.

  • I noticed a few people are asking for auto sport enabled – it’s a feature that can not be coded. On 2nd gen MINIs you need to buy an Auto Sport plus add-on circuit. Also there is no way to currently make this work on any Countryman – checkout this link – http://www.northamericanmotoring.com/forums/vendor-announcements/176738-auto-sport-plus-is-ready.html

  • Chris

    I’m in. Been emailing Ram about items I want done. Will be there in afternoon.

  • Tamara

    What a fun day! I love all new features especially the emergency lights! Thanks for organizing.

  • Shawn

    I love the changes. Thanks Ram.

    I had him change the speed to show the correct speed, and show the speed on the tach at all times. Did anyone else get these codes? The speed on the tach is corrected, but the center display is still fast. Is that not changeable, is that a different code, or is that just how it is?

    Shawn

    • Ram

      The coding allows us to correct the digital speed not the analog one.
