    NOOOoooooooooo.....

    So they really changed it seen 2012 model year because I know of one roadster from 2012 that had it done not by the dealer but someone that know how to deal with programing.

    Will have our service somewhat soon. I'll ask as well. It doesn't hurt to ask...

    Cough BS cough

    That just means the US dealers either don't have the correct program that allows them to do it or they don't know how to do it.

    It also may not be available in the OEM BMW/MINI coding tool they have use.

    The aftermarket is the way to go :devil: to unlock and access everything in the ECU.

    Dave is correct. The dealer could not activate the rear fog light I installed, but Way Motor Works could and did. Go after market. :Thumbsup:

    Question: Are you going to the Dragon this year? Only because the big shops like Helix, Detroit Tuned and WMW will be and they can do this for you at the Dragon.

    If you are not going you can take a nice long drive across PA on the Turn-Pike and have Helix program this for you and get a REAL Philly Cheesesteak.

    Ok Just give Eric or Mike a call at Helix before you make the trip.

    99% of the trip will be turn pike (No stop lights) :Thumbsup: and the t-pike has an exit right to I-76 (No stop lights) :Thumbsup: that will take you almost right to the shop (Manayunk) just inside of Philly.

    The guys at Helix managed to program a bunch of useful window stuff on my car (2012 Roadster S) at the Dragon this year, like:
    - leaving the windows powered for a minute after the car is off
    - not stopping the window movement when the door is open
    - the all-important one-touch up.
    This was great until a xenon levelling issue meant that the footwell computer just got replaced and all that goodness went away :cryin:

    Awwwww that sucks. I am sure if you are in the Helix area (Philly) they would recode it for you. The address for Helix and phone # is above in this thread. :ihih:

    Old thread. Still current topic...

    I'm trying Carista. Those two first functions can be programmed with Carista on a R59, but not the one-touch up... sadly :mad2:

    You are not trying to have it done at a Dealership are you? They do not have all the options (codes) to enable ALL functions. They are limited to what BMW / MINI gives them.

    You have to go to a Vendors like Helix (local to me) to have options turned on with the Aftermarket software they have which has access to everything and is not restricted by Country / dealership.

    If your in the Philly Area Helix will reprogram "Code" it for you again or code it again at the Dragon. It is not something that can be done remotely.

    Blue haired Mike did our R55 at the dragon. :Thumbsup:

    My GTI aka the German bread-van needed those codes done too. I ended up with Carista & was able to do my coding with it. From what I understand the folks at Carista are very responsive & helpful. Send them an email about your auto up problem TG.

    nope not at all

    I did send them an email. They've been pretty responsive so far. Will see what they say on this one... I've been told the one touch up window option shows up on an R58, but obviously there's no convertible roof top issue there...

    Actually, pretty sure the Blue Mohican does remote coding as well. He sends you a net book that you connect to WiFi and your car... then he takes over from his home base and you're good to go.
