Hey guys - Neil is really cool.
We hooked up yesterday and I read the coding data off all the modules in his car.

Now I need a volunteer with a 2014 ///M5 with the LED package to do the same and compare.

Let's do it!

This is what I used for my M3, I'm assuming it will work for the M5?

@skypx: Hi - we need a different cable for the F chassis. I'll mail you one.

@v12 - I have the cable and a '14 w LEDs. Let me know if I can assist. I've coded several other things already and have the software stack ready to go.

actually the other test is to get a uk car with xenons and see what the code differences are also as I think the hardware is there on 2013 cars.

What was the ultimate finding here? Can US cars be coded to use the actual adaptive LED functionality? If so, what are the relevant bits of code?

He just got the data off of my car late Saturday night... think it will take a bit to determine whether it can happen or not and if it is codeable. **finger crossed**

By the way V12 did a great job with both my cars, showing me how coding is done and how each function works... so many little things can be coded to return the car to what the Germans intended before DOT stepped in.

Post 11 seems to indicate he has it working. He says HB stays on and it shuttering the beam which is not the case with our OEM settings. He did indicate the pattern parameters need further tuning for US.

Got an email from v12 he should have it going soon. He has it working on another members car but still testing it to make sure it's all correct.
