is the °∞comfort closing°± option that is not available here in the US. It is
a matter of programming one option in the footwell module.

So here is an update to the additional changes I have done to my car in the
mean time : I was able to retrofit the IBOC tuner with NCS as well. The
dealer cannot and will not be able to do this for you! That was best done via
modifying the Vehicle Order and resetting the radio module (since I don°Øt
have NAV).

Also retrofitted the factory bluetooth & usb kit with NCS, also by
changing the VO and defaulting the RAD2. Works perfect.

NCS Expert Change BMW Vehicle Order (VO)
The nice thing about modifying the trace files in NCS is that you forget
what you have changed and something goes wrong, you can °∞default°± the
module back to factory specs (and the default is based on your Vehicle Order
[VO] which defines the region of your vehicle [like how Canada cannot turn
off DRL from the BC on the stalk] and the modules installed in the
car).
The following are the changes I have made.

Comfort closing via the remote fob (also can be done via the metal key in
the door cylinder). In the CAS module

Code:
KOMFORTSCHLIESSUNG_FB
    aktiv
Seat belt chime is in the Airbag ABG/MRS module. Driver and passenger is
set separately. CC_GURT stops the seat belt message at startup.

Code:
CC_GURTWARNUNG
         nicht_aktiv
SBR_BEIFAHRER
         nicht_aktiv
SBR_FAHRER
         nicht_aktiv
And now the two-touch open and two-touch close sunroof is working, in the
SHD module
Code:
SCHIEBEHEBEDACH_TIPP_AUF
        aktiv
SCHIEBEHEBEDACH_TIPP_HEB
        aktiv
SCHIEBEHEBEDACH_TIPP_SENK
        aktiv
SCHIEBEHEBEDACH_TIPP_ZU
        aktiv
No A/C engagement when pressing the AUTO button! In the IHKA module
Code:
KLIMA_MIT_AUTO
        nicht_aktiv
Digital speed always shows in the top window (so I can see instant miles
per gallon and the speed at the same time, word has it 2011 models this is
default) in the KOMBI module
Code:
DIG_SPEED_PERMANENT
        aktiv
Enable fog lights with the high beams. In the FRM module
Code:
FL_UND_NSW_NICHT_GLEICHZ
        nicht_aktiv
Double-Blink Hazard flashers. In the FRM module
Code:
DOPPELBLINKIMPULS_WARNBLK
        aktiv
Here are some additional changes that can be made:

Auto unlock doors when you remove the key. Only unlocks when the autolock
is programed in the BoardComputer! In the CAS module
Code:
ER_KEYOUT_AUTOVR
        aktiv
Added the code to enable the alarm light on the top of the tach. In the
SPEG and KOMBI change the following:

Code:
DWA_VERBAUT
    aktiv
Nav users can remove the legal warning upon startup. CAPPL Module
Code:
LEGAL_DISCL
         nicht_aktiv

To change your DRL mode to using just the front City Lights (the top bulb
in the fog housing) and no other lights change the following two settings in
the FRM module:
Code:
VERHALTEN_DRL_TFL
              drl_s
DRL_TFL_MIT_SML
              aktiv

To turn off bulb checks you will need to disable both warm and cold testing
of each of the bulbs you modify and the appropriate check control message. I
highly recommend running the NCS DUMMY translations to find the settings you
need, there are way too many to post here. All of the lighting is in the FRM
module. The abbreviations for most of the lights are in the translations. In
the Cooper we do have dual dual-function rear bulbs in the tailights and they
are controlled independently (if you turn off your car and turn on your
parking lights you will see only one of the bulbs lit in the rear). Those are
RL_BL_1 and RL_BL_2. KZL is license plate light, NSW rear fog, NSL front
fog.
CC_MELDUNG_BLK_V is an example of the °∞Check Control°± in your tach
display for warning.

I wanted to get the BFD (brake force display) to work by flashing the rear
fog light or flashers under hard braking, I never could get it to work. Be
advised we don°Øt have BFD lights like many BMW assemblies have. But it looks
like BFD_2 is what we would use.

This setup will work with most modern BMWs (the closest to R56 is E60 and
E9x) and R55 Clubman/R56 Hatch/R57 Cabrio/R60 Countryman/R58 Coup®¶/R59
