Secondly don't get too excited about any other additional OBD / Key programming security as contrary to what I had been told this wasn't on offer either! In BMWs mind the additional security solely consists of the window modification preventing them from being opened and it has no relevance to disabling the key programming option from the OBD port....

So all in all a complete waste of time and it appears my own OBD security measures taken are far superior to those offered by BMW!

Good luck with everyone else planning to waste their time!
Are you serious, the supposed fix from BMW is to resolve the window opening and nothing to do with disarming the OBD from programming keys?
