I believe you can buy it from the ConnectedDrive site if you have right correct version of idrive.

I decided to give this a try and am able to change the ConnectedDrive splash screen to M display plus delete the Legal disclaimer but still experience some issues:

1. Not able to active "HUD turn signal (2/2)" under "Headunit". After switching this to "Active", my HUD settings doesn't show any new options regarding turn signals at all.

2. Not able to active "Fold mirrors when locking vehicle with Comfort Access" and "Unfold mirrors when unlocking vehicle with Comfort Access" under "Body Domain Controller". I switched to "Active", Start coding process, everything is successful, but nothing happens. When I reconnect the apps, the value is set back to "Inactive".

3. Also under "Body Domain Controller", I tried switching "Indicator cycles" from 3 to 5 times but my blinkers are still only doing 3. It does show up as 5 times on the apps after reconnecting.

Any thoughts?

I know is that on my 2018 X5, it has an option to add Apple car play, but you would have to pay $300 for it. So for the new idrive systems, you can add carplay. The old idrive you probably can't.

I purchased the Bluetooth version which was (at a time) linked from the Bimmercode website. It appears they are linking to the WiFi version now.

Anybody with success using the Bluetooth version with iOS?

Hi All,

I recently purchased a 2018 X5 xDrive35i and I love it! The only problem was that it seemed to be missing some features that my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee had that I was surprised were not functional on my X5. Then I found this thread! Thanks to this thread and the Bimmercode app I've successfully coded the following:

Remote open close tailgate
Button close tailgate
Comfort Access mirror folding
Indicators in HUD
Fogs on with high beams and DRL
Door lights in reverse
Removed legal disclaimers
Display temperature and pressure

There are two things i'm having trouble with.

1. I can't the 5 blinks like many others, anyone successfully gotten this to work recently? Any tips?

2. For the mirror folding with remote. Which setting do I need to adjust to not have to hold the lock button? Is it the Comfort closing delay that I need to lower to "no delay"?


Thanks in advance for the assistance!

1. See post #461. I explain why this might be an issue with Bimmercode itself. If the developer is programming module 3068, it'll only work for older I-Step Level cars. Newer ones, module 3069 and a diff function name need to be programmed.

2. Correct. Need to set the delay to zero in Module 3056

Thanks doanster! Coded #2 just now and works like a charm. Now hoping bimmercode comes out with a fix for the 5 blinks.

I already posted it, but will repeat. I also had problems coding 5 blinks, however, was able to solve in a heartbeat. Code 5 blinks, then go to settings, and chose a new profile, in new profile simply go to lighting and choose 5 blinks.

Anyone know how to code the exhaust so both flaps are open for both sides? I hate how exhaust gas is coming out only one side.

Are some of your heated seats really weak? I'm wondering if they have the heat already increased for 2018s. On level 3 after 5 minutes I feel like my ass is on fire.
