Highbeam pattern - pretty much the same, except for more light output do to EU coding on my US spec 135i.

I know this is off topic but just wondering if anyone's been able to code activating pathway lighting via the trunk button on the key fob?

Not sure about trunk button but you can code welcoming lights on unlock.

Yeah it's weird DimSum coded it but it doesn't work... He said he had coded it on 3-series and it did work so kinda odd... Got the AHL2 coded it's pretty sick. Just wondering if only the drivers side headlight is suppose to move outward?

No, BOTH lights will move outwards when in light switch is in "AUTO mode". But the drivers side headlight will move outwards and down a little bit. While the passenger's side light just moves outwards.

Weird it doesn't look like the passenger side is moving outward... DimSum said it was 2 codes which needed to be enabled can you confirm this? Even in the video it only looks like the driver side is moving outward...

Sorry I do not know what the line code is for this mod. All I know is it works wonderfully well.

Yes, both lights move, like I said above. Its kind of hard to see in the video.

I bought a Euro HL switch from a friend. It has the switch for the front fogs, which the 135i does not have. Will the REAR foglight switch still work? Will have to find out about coding for the EU beam functions. Pretty cool!

It will work and you can take out the button for front fogs and put in from your 135i blind button.

I just got a buddy of mine to turn the switch from manual to auto for me as I watched and the drivers side headlight does indeed rotate outwards and down however the passenger side headlight didn't move... I thought it might not be working properly but it moves when you turn the steering wheel... Does anyone know specifically what the line codes are?

I'm also curious what the individual codes are. Not a lot of info about this particular coding mod out there.

I can make a video - I think that would be better. You want the video looking at the headlight>? Or of the headlight pattern on a garage wall(I already posted a video like that above!). ???

Driver side: http://tinypic.com/r/32zs8z7/5

Passenger side: http://tinypic.com/r/fn9zr9/5

Clearly the driver side is swiveling outwards when on auto however the passenger side doesn't seem to be. Am I missing something here?

Yes, only the driver's side will pivot outwards while the car is parked. I believe the passenger side does swing outwards when under way. I know BOTH head lights will swing left and right following the steering wheel inputs. Plus they will more more than before with USA coding. But looking at the vidoes I shot tonight(they are uploading as I type this) only the driver's side head light swings outwards.

IF you flick on the high beams you will see the drivers side head light move from outwards to straight ahead position.

Here you go...







NOTE: the car MUST be running in order to see the driver's side low beam move outwards. When you only have the key fob switch on... the headlight will only move up and down. As see here...

Ok perfect! So looking @ my videos and yours I would say its safe to say that mine was coded properly?

Was your engine running in that first video? It is hard to tell. ?

IF it was... no, I do not think you have it coded right, bc the headlight was not angled out like my car is.


When you switch on the car(and the headlight switch is in AUTO mode) you sill see the drivers side headlight move up and then down... and then after a few seconds... the driver's headlight will point out at about 30' angle. Look at my video with the headlights on the garage wall.

Yeah the headlight on the driver side does angel out and go down slightly when in auto mode.
