Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

That I would like to know as well. Being able to access the parts of the system that are disabled while driving is worth the cost alone but this would be a nice bonus.

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

Question - if I buy Bronze today but want to upgrade to Silver or Gold in the future to add the cameras, can I do that?

Also, if I have a backup camera, can I buy the bronze package still?

Just a note on the acceleration, it smoothes out once the engine warms up. When it's cold, you get that sudden pull but it is warm, smooth as butter.

Re: Cold Weather Start

I figured it was something like that since I'm on the dealer's tank still. I'll just plug it on nights (like tonight -12F) and give the car a little extra time to warm up. Thanks for the reply!

Awesome and thanks for the info. Glad to know it's considered normal. Nothing like having a car with 45 miles on it thinking I've got to go right back to the dealer.

Where did you get that info?
