Default Remote start for F3x - 02-10-2020, 06:09 PM

Iíve been searching for a remote starter for my 2020 440i but thereís nothing OTS that even claims to be compatible. So I figured where better to ask about ďenhancingĒ OEM configurations than a forum dedicated to tuning! (Crickets)

Iím sure Iím not the only one, and one might argue that thereís a significant market for such things. Maybe some of our BMS friends have some experience in this area or have attempted something and can tell me itís Possible/hopeless??

I know starting your car from the window of your heated house isnít as exciting as a 10s 1/4 mile, but us old New Englanders that arenít snow birds and 1 or 2 Canadians need this bad.

Please?

Nope, nothing that works with the F-series. Up until recently BMW was very against remote start and warming up the car by idling it, so they made sure nothing could work with their cars.

Now with the G-series models, they're offering it as an option. Aftermarket ones still won't work though.

Thatís exactly why Iím posting it here. From what Iíve read it sounds like BMW encrypted the start commands and those BMS guys might actually be the best bet for working around it.

How cool would it be is the JB4 could also allow remote start 😎
