X46 comfort feature modules anyone?

I stumbled on this website when researching some coding options. They are selling modules that add some comfort features to our aging steeds. Some of the features seem nice, particularly the coming/leaving lights and auto windows up/down without holding the remote button.
Has anyone had any experience with them?

Well if you could share the parameters for any of those remote options there are a lot of people who would be grateful I am sure.

Edit: OK so HEIMLEUCHTEN_FUNKSCHL seems to be for home light on remote lock, but I can't find out anything on the others.

Double edit: I am wondering if this is just someone profiteering off the back of the car cracker open source i-bus module? Unless that guy has started selling them like this?

Yeah...I don't understand the point of that product. Everything in that module is available on the 3-series, you just need to activate it.

Well would any of you be prepared to share this information, because as far as I can see, this can not be reproduced with coding options.
From my research I can see there are 3 options for window comfort opening closing:
1) Disabled
2) Push and hold to open close
3) Automatically close on lock
I have not come across a way to get the windows to close on double tap of the lock or other any other way without holding (and I wouldn't want them to automatically close every time).

Also the lights on remote unlock seems to be eluding me so please, rather than telling me to search when I have already said that I haven't been able to any information to these ends, could you give me a little help?

you should look into NCS and NCS dummy for translations. some of the coding options are not in every module, only because they are based on firmware and hardware of each module. for example: My LCM module can not be coded to have my fog lights and Hight beam at the same time because i have an older LCM..That being said, many options can be easily coded only if you modules allows it....

If you wish to pay for those aftermarket modules, go right ahead and post with your results..

Ok so further research leads me to believe that HEIMLEUCHTEN_FUNKSCHL is not available for e46. So that means that not all, not most, not even some, but NONE of these features I mentioned can be coded.

So I don't understand what you guys are thinking of?

Would have saved time for both of us if you had just shared your knowledge and simply typed "No they can't be coded" rather than being so vague?

You do realize that you just answer your questions by just searching as other post suggested..
