Removing iDrive Accept screen?

One of my pet hates is the dreaded I-drive disclaimer screen which needs to be clicked away every time I start the car. It isn't even required by law in Australia but BMW give it to us anyway. Is there a way to get rid of it or at least give it a timeout after a couple of seconds like on my MB?

You can code out that opening idrive disclaimer screen. Here's DIY instructions (not for the weak hearted). It works the same way for the F10 based cars also.

Thanks for the link.

I read the word "solder" somewhere and quickly moved on.

You can also buy a Ethernet-OBDII cable. You don't need to solder your own cable.

It is pretty easy to do this. I was able to mAke this and several other software tweaks.

MHH, I ordered the DVD in motion software and as a bonus they gave me the software to delete the idrive warning. You simply download a file onto a DVD, then insert the DVD in the car and it is done. Can't tell you how much better it is without that idrive warning ....

Thank you

Software ordered.

I can't wait to have a BMW that doesn't treat me like a moron every time I start the car.

Does DVD void the warranty in anyway?

Any way we can get the actual tire pressures via the tpms? It's listed at the end of the F30 vid.

Aussie F10M, thanks a million for this. I just fixed the "accept" screen and did the DVD in Motion while I was at it. I probably don't need to have video in motion as I have the rear screens but it is easy to disable. The Accept screen I never need look at again. Yay!

Personally, I would prefer doing the e-Sys programming way as I will be able to tweak other things. Of course it is not for the "weak of heart", but since I am an IT guy and have tweaked other things via software modifications, I believe I can do this.
