Coding West of Chicago

Morning gents.

Is there anyone with coding capabilities in the Yorkville area that can tweak a few things for me?

I know its a bit of a long shot, but I thought I'd throw it up here anyways...

If it's basic things you want, look into buying a bmw scanner pa soft 1.4. If you know even a little bit about computers you'll do fine. It's not rocket science plus you would want one in case you need to scan for check engine light

Ive got it on the top of my list, just haven't pulled the trigger yet. I havent done enough research on it so Im still unsure what Im looking for.

The scanners in the VW world are much simpler; theres only one that works, thats it.

You won't need to do any research. We've all been experimenting with our already. As long as you keep in mind not to push a button you aren't exactly sure what it does without at least asking. Just go on ebay of Amazon. I have personally bought 3 on ebay. I opted to get it from China to reduce cost but you wait 3-4 weeks to get it. Costs around $30 that route. So the price usually goes up from there. It's called pa soft bmw scanner v1.4. I wrote a guide on how to install of you have windows 64 bit
