Here is the PDF for all the easy options like the keyfob etc...

http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/attac...9&d=1307773173

I'll also add the adjustable reverse drop down. Mirror automatic memory curb needs to be set to "active." By default it is inactive, and the mirror will drop when set to the driver side in a non adjustable way. When set active it functions when set to passenger side and is adjustable in the drop down.

This gets asked on a regular basis.

FWIW, the shift lights, SAP delete, and O2 delete require aftermarket tunes. I'm not aware of how to do it with the "DIY" tools that we've got access to.

I'm going to put date limitations, if any, on each option.
M-track requires the MK60 module, which is limited to M3s 2003 (09/2002) and newer. The LED isn't present in all of the cars (and it seems to be somewhat random as to which cars get it). Other members have confirmed that soldering an LED and a couple resistors does the trick to enabling it

Triple flash turn signals require an LCM from 09/2005 or later (LCM should be SW version 4.0 or 4.5). If you retrofit a new LCM to an old car (for LEDs or whatever) you can also enable triple flash.

I don't know if the post will stay since usually posts on the subject get deleted, but here's a summary I wrote in another thread about what I find to be the most popular options:

Quote:

Airbag Control Module:
-Useful if airbags are to be removed or for aftermarket seats to disable seat sensors. I'd say best use for people that are stripping the car down...

Instrument Cluster:
-Acoustic warnings for belts, key in ignition, frost warning - these are nice to quiet the car down a bit. If these beeps annoy you, they can be removed.
-Cluster offset. The instrument cluster reads high by about 7-8%, this can be adjusted, so it's closer to actual speed.
-Service interval. This has actually made the service interval feature useful to me. By default it's set to 25,000km or close to 15,000 miles, I've changed mine to 11,000km or close to 7,000 miles, now I can use this as my oil change interval instead of trying to remember halves.

Central Light Switch:
-Super high beams!!! You can have the halogens, bi-xenons and fog lights on all at the same time. Obviousy this is not for around town, but it's very nice in the middle of nowhere in a forest, makes your headlights twice as bright.
-Check control and warm testing lights are useful for LED tail lights retrofit. If these are disabled, you won't get a dash light or blinking anymore.
-Foglights stay on with high beams, already mentioned, but this is good for people with HID fogs to extend the life of the ignitors.
-Daytime running lights. These can be changed, activated or removed, quite a few items in this topic.
-Home shine - you can pick which lights you want for your home shine or "follow me home" lights.
-Euro sidemarkers - this disables the orange corner lights as running lights, they'll only work as turn signals, so no orange corners with the headlights on.

Rearview mirror module:
-Tilt mirror memory can be programmed, so you can adjust the mirror after it tilts down for reverse.

Convertible top module:
This module does not take coding and several people said they've burned theirs while trying to code. Shame...

General Module:
-Alarm can be enabled (it's built into the car, so even if you don't have the siren, it'll start blinking the headlights).
-One touch open/close for all windows including rear flaps on coupes.
-One click unlock for both doors.
-Open and close windows/sunroof/convertible top with remote. This can be customized.
-Automatic locking based on time or speed. Speed can be customized.

AC/Heater system:
-Automatic rear defroster. I love this, I haven't touched the button since I got my car.

Radio:
-Station key memory can be enabled, so you have different presets for different keys.

Seat Memory:

-Automatic seat adjustment based on which key unlocked the car can be enabled. I can be set to change seat position as soon as you unlock the car with the remote. I see this being useful if you're a big guy and move the seat every time you get in. I don't use it.

Post with full list HERE.

Adding in the appropriate field changes would be much more useful. Finding out that these things can be done, isn't hard... it's finding the appropriate field(s) to change that can be difficult.

ie; SSS settings, NCSexpert settings, etc.

SSS is extremely easy.
NCSExpert is a different story.
Ian doesn't want us to discuss software here.
so i was being quite.

I'm going to put up how to get to each feature, I've just been suddenly unexpectedly busy.

I don't think think there's any reason we can't discuss how to use software, just not any discussion of where to get software. Everyone should buy all required software!
