It's a per-key setting, so wherever those live in BMW Scanner is where I'd look. If there's nothing else, then I'd look at using NCS Expert or Progman or something.

Yeah, the Peake stuff is a ripoff. Perhaps there was a space for it in the market when it was new, but not so much now.

As far as handholding goes, just make sure you have a backup plan. There...

You think that this is a clean room implementation (or that nobody else reverse engineers things for their diag tools)?
