Here show some problem from forum about BMW Coding for Sport Display:


I coded Sport display on a MY 2009 F01 730d ECE version. The gauges don’t have the numbering and they don’t work. Is there a way to make them work?

This is what i coded:




Answer 1:

Sadly, Sport Displays is not supported by all Motors, and as far as I know, the N57D30O0 used in the 2009 730D cannot support Sport Displays.


Question 2:

hi guys trying to code sports display on bmw f10 535i

have done the below on esys pressed save and have had no change ?


3000- EFF_DYN_SPORT_CID set to: aktiv

3000- EFF_DYN_SPORT_UNIT set to: aktiv


Answer 2:

If you only “pressed save”, you’ve saved your edit to your computer, but not to the car.

In the FA section at the top of the screen, right-click “FA” and select “Activate”.

In the list of CAFD files, select the one you edited, and click “Code FDL” from the right side of the screen.

Those steps save the values to the car.


Question 3:

This is F13 2011 640, after activate the sport display. but no number marker on the meter. Any suggestion and advise, please help. The red needle will go up when acc. padel pressed, the only niche is no number and can not change the units from kW to bhp.


Answer 3:

The meters have yet to work with the N63 V8; however, with the N55 I6 like you have, it has worked for most, but others have been unable to change the Units. Your 640i though is the first I have seen where the meteres have no numerical values of any kind.

In HU_CIC / 3000 HMI, did you also enable EFF_DYN_SPORT_UNIT, and do you have the added “Power” and “Torque” on the Settings=>Language/Units screen, and are they selectable?

Apart from that, you may want to try and force the units into hp and ft lb as follows and see if the triggers the values to appear:

KOMBI 3008 PIA_Einheiten DREHMOMENT = lb_ft
KOMBI 3008 PIA_Einheiten LEISTUNG = PS
