TIA

Hey no problem! I have this adapter; https://www.amazon.com/Vgate-Elm327-...s=Vgate+iCar+2

Downloaded the app thru the app store on my iPhone.

I followed a coding cheat sheet I found on bmwesys to find what modules need to be changed. I used the expert mode in the app but they offer a simplified view that states what exactly is being changed. The cheat sheet helps indicate what module needs to be changed its a little confusing at first but it really isn't that hard. I can try to help anyone if they want to attempt it! I can try to put together a better overview of the app and what i coded if anyone wants?
Thanks. I might take you up on the offer soon when my dongle arrives. Is there anything the expert mode can do that the simple method cannot ?

Possible to increase the volume of the fake engine sound ?
Thanks to this thread I was able to add a few customizations on my car.

How do you increase the angel eye level, by default, the app is already showing 100% but not sure if I'm looking at the correct spot. Is this done via the expert mode ?

Any help will be appreciated.
