I've been looking into this myself. Reading threads here and on BMW coding, and e90.. it seemed like a PITA... but this thread has helped a LOT!

I'm interested in doing the following:
window rollup from the FOB
Digital speed in the dash
speed correction

Eventually I want to change out the headlight buckets for ones that have angel eyes, and then add HID's in the HL's and fogs.

But I do have a question.. Can you do diagnostics with this stuff? I recently installed a new audio system in my car, and apparently pissed off the airbags. Had to take it to the dealer to have that error cleared. $125 later.. ouch! I'd pretty damn tech-savvy, and very mechanically inclined. I'd like to be able to do as much of my own work as possible.

I'm probably going to get the cable from one-stop.. Not sure about BMWhat yet. Seems like it's abilities are still a bit limited, but any thoughts, or guidance is appreciated.
