Hi Sunny - just took home a 14 528xDrive. Interested in helping me remote-code? Will I need the cable?

Do you have all the steps for the coding that you done? If so do you have them in a easy to follow format and where can I get the cable?

The cable i bought from ebay and as far as steps i just used the F10 cheat sheet to code the options I wanted.

You will definitely need a cable in order to code your vehicle. I have never attempted to code remotely but im sure its not that complicated.

Every time I look at Sunny's car I just fall further in love.

A couple of questions for everyone and hopefully I can get to tricking this bad boy out:
1. Is there any real difference between Burger Stage 1 and Burger JB4 for the N20?
2. Sunny, where did you buy your wheels from? I have been looking for 19-20 inchers and have only found them in the $2k range...perhaps my mastery of the Google force is not as strong as yours?
3. Plasti-Dip, when I messed with this stuff on my motorcycle it was a semi-disaster, as it didn't stick to the plastic I was dipping and started to peel...any recommendations? Or just clean it real well and let it ride?
4. How do you update the maps?

I am looking to get these easy and cosmetic things done before I venture into coding. kinda like taking care of your easy homework before hitting the calculus.

Thanks everyone for responding to my thread!

1.) well from what i read is that the JB4 N20 increases more horse power and torque, also gives you different maps and E85 support which is really adds some serious fun. But i don't mess with E85 on a small motor .

2.) BOOM! $849.00 for all 4 shipped same exact seller i bought mine from and same size n offset!

***EDIT*** wheels are on sale for 806.55 for 3 days and ends on 5/26/2014

3.) not sure what's wrong but i just usually clean the surface area really well and apply 4-5 coats and drying 10-15 mins per coat

4.) this is a bit tricky, you need the enet cable, downloaded version of maps you want to use, 1B file from your car, FSC code decrypter and code generator to get you the FSC code when installing and updating the nav map.
