I changed the module shown in the picture. Is the coding based on the module or the car?

The coding is base on the car. But the unit it self has to match the car.
here are the abbreviations for the parameters
HW: Heckscheibenwischer = rear wiper
aic: Rain sensor intermittent switch (auto interval control)
fla: High beam assist (switch)
4_Band: Steering wheel heater
LHZ (Lenkradheizung) is the German abbreviation for heated steering wheel.
TLC (Spurverlassenswarnung) Lane departure warning (Vibration)

so you are supposed to match the parameter according to the module. If you vo code the parameter will be set according to the car's configuration.

Yes, youŽll need the switch from the F15/F48 as well. The old one wouldnŽt work.

if anyone is looking to get rid of their old mechanical stalk setup after upgrading to the self centering stalk, please let me know! I actually prefer it and am trying to retrofit it to my car.

Just posted a guide to retrofit a "normal" stalk into my 2016 340i. Here is my link: https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=2076804

Huge thanks to BMW-ALPINA for helping me throughout the process.

It looks similar to the mechanical versions, except of the auto windscreen wiper button and off course as they returns to 0-position when operating. It feels so premium and more modern now!





Hi,

I would like to do the same mod on my F31 which is using the same stalk as F20.
If I get a szl from F15 2018 with HBA it will work?
I currently have the old style szl with auto return but I would like to have it more updated.

Thank you,
Alex
