Right. I was responding to the guy above who thought you could choose red from the options. I'm surprised such a standard color isn't part of it. If I come across the bimmercode instructions, I'll send you a PM. I will be using bimmercode shortly anyway to remove ASD and enable anti dazzle so I'll take a peek.

So used Bimmercode today and turned off the seatbelt chime etc..... FYI I changed the dash layout and almost lost it. ALL THE OPTIONS ARE FOR BASE CARS. If you change you must revert back to the "M" dash. Not M Comp as its a 6k redline etc. Not to be changed...

Weary on tweaking other things now since the coding is based off the x etc. No G80 in the software.

This is an excellent post. I have used BC numerous times but each time was for an established platform. Code at your own peril at this point.

I will wait till they have the G80 listed, more importantly the M3C.

Thanks for this reminder!

Just spoke with bimmercode. Sounds like we are still a little ways out from G8x support as they haven't received a test vehicle yet. Hopefully they get it soon. I'm hanging tight until G8x support.

Do they need a car in person to test? I am not even sure were they are located.

It's under Tailgate function module.

I did it too. Works perfectly

I assume it's a safety thing of some description and they're not allowed offer it maybe?

That's my guess. Someone's child might try to climb into the trunk as it is closing, and trap them in there. Then the parent/owner sues BMW for allowing this to happen.

We lose a lot of functionality in the USA market because of our litigious society. Which is also why we have that stupid warning at start-up.

I removed that warning almost immediately when I had my F80. Will be doing it as soon as the G8x support comes out.

Red is a possible color option because at night when I open the door while the car is running (can't remember if it has to be in gear) the door light strip starts pulsing in red as an alert feature I guess
