iDrive Coding via USB

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

New to the forum and specifically Coding too.


I have come across some sellers (eBay) offering USB Coding for iDrive's where they send you a .bin file via email to then ingest into the car via the USB port enabling certain functions within the iDrive system.


I was wanting to know if:


1. Is it safe to use this approach?

2. Can I create the .bin file myself using software rather than paying someone for the services?


I have considered the cable approach, but would not know where to start, but I do think it can be cost effective for me considering we own 3 BMW's within the family.
