Hi, just wondering if anyone has tried using Bimmercode on a ‘23 F56 yet?
I’ve had mine for nearly a week now and there is already a couple of things I would like to change, primarily the auto start/stop off by default and possibly the folding mirrors on locking.
I’ve never played around with coding on a car before so just a little apprehensive about it and hoping for some reassurance from others that have done it already!

Also, what OBD dongle do people recommend? I looked at the compatible ones for my car on the Bimmercode website and the only one that wasn’t crazy expensive was the Veepeak OBDCheck BLE+, has anyone tried this one?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I used Bimmercode on my last Mini (2018my) and disabled ASD, stop start to off, seat belt warning off and a few other things succesfully

I tried the free version on my 2021my but it wouldn't let me save anything meaning i'll have to pay the £33 for the full version - might get around to it soon?

I use the Veepeak OBDCheck BLE+ and it's fine

I use the Veepeak OBDCheck BLE+ and haven't had any problems. Always connects first time. My Mini is a '16 F54 and set up loads of options including the stop/start, mirrors, seat temperature, door handle lights in reverse and assorted other things. I set my stop/start to remember it's last setting and not off.
