HI,
Im just learning about this Bimmercode thing and was wondering if it is available for IX 50 / Idrive 8? Has anyone tried to program changes yet? Will it void the warranty?

Indeed, I tried on my iX with a OBDLink CX and Bimmercode & Bimmerlink apps, but the car is not recognized. I also tried with ABRP with the same OBDLink CX and ABRP simply doesn't have the OBD button enabled when you got to the car settings for the iX.
I reached out to ABRP and they have confirmed that the iX is currently not supported but they say they regularly add cars in the supported list (so hopefully soon?).

I'm mainly interested in ABRP support for OBD interface on the iX to get live data in ABRP.

If you happen to find out that the iX is supported by ABRP, could you post a reply here. I would appreciated it.

So, if the CX is not compatible with the iX, does anyone have an OBD adapter that actually works with the iX (using any of the available smartphone (android) apps)?

I unfortunately bought the CX before reading these posts...and, yes, the CX doesn't recognize the iX. I'll return it for a refund, but would like to know if there is an adapter that works,

interestingly the iX has started popping up on the coding websites as a supported option for the HUD basic mods (VIM, delete safety message, etc.) not sure if it is legitimate or not. I know HugoNZ has been able to achieve these mods however...
