A bit of info for your car....

These work on OBC II (13 button) cars:

Simultaneously press the 1000 and the 1 button to get remaining fuel in liters (the car needs to be running).

Simultaneously press the 1000 and the 10 button to get the version number. You should get something like: 4 .6TYP

Where the 4 is the car/engine designator, the 6 is the chip firmware. That tells you the programming of the OBC, what coding plug is in it. Specific to each engine type, injector type, tire size, fuel tank and reserve capacity.

OBC car/engine designators and firmware number. E30 318i 3-3 TYP
E30___325e______('84-87)___3-8 TYP
E30___325e______('88)______4-4 TYP
E30___325i______('87)_______3-1.2 TYP
E30___325i______('88 on)____4-6 TYP
E30___M3__________________3-1.1 TYP
E28___528e_____('85-87)____5-8 TYP
E28___528e______('88)______5-1.3 TYP
E28___535i_________________5-6 TYP
E28___M5__________________6-4 TYP
E24___635Csi/L6__('85-87)___6-2 TYP
E24___635Csi_____('88 on)___6-6 TYP
E24___M6__________________6-4 TYP
E23___735i/L7____('85-87)___7-4 TYP

As of right now I'm trying to decipher and decode the proms in the OBC and speedo so maybe one day people can order new coding plugs with their specs so everything works correctly. But for now it's on the back burner, currently I don't see any demand.... But it would be cool...

Why? Just buy a set of bulbs (part number 272-1140) from radio shack and solder them in.

Only lost one screw. LOL
Your right I should have just bought two bulbs and soldered em in and saved the 24 bucks LOL

reset to english, set the time, date, reset mpg etc.
The switch on the turn signal works, changes mode.
Did test drive, pretty kool, particularly at ight.
Set the speed warning signal to 150mph. LOL
just reread this post, will try the easter eggs, with the numbers next time
1000-1 liters
100-1 firmware rev

Hope to autoX it again in a few weeks, Nov 4, BMWCCA San Diego Qualcom Stadium again.
