This can be coded if you already have fitted the mirrors that fold with the internal button press. I have recently coded this on a few FXX series cars abeit not an M4 but each time its worked fine as well as other coding I have done with it to my own F31.

I use a Bloothtooh OBD port dogle and the Bimmercode APP (www.bimmercodeapp.com) on my iphone it cost me £27 for the dongle & £25 for the app have a look at it it might be worthwhile as it allows more than just mirror coding.

There are some people online on forums etc who are charging £40 to code all they can or you want using this type of sytem so that is an option.

Heres the list of Bimmercode supported vehicles

Have a look at this guys youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCULVBFvClXe3M3iSoqc2qIw hes done some Bimmercode clips on his F30 and it was watching these aswell as posts on bimmerpost that made me take the plunge it really is very easy.

It is somthing I can do and that I have done on other FXX vehicles but never on an M2/3/4 Im guessing the process will be the same but will need to look into it a bit more just to see if there is anything model specific or if anyone has come across any issues. The bimmer app developer is also really helpful so will ping an email to him for his take on it also shoudl have a reply fairly quickly from him.

Im based in Warwickshire not far from Coventry.  

Do you open/close your car with the key fob or do you have comfort access?

Ok I have an update, Stephan (developer of bimmercode) has replied and it is the same process on the M4 as it is on any other FXX, which a member on F30post also confirmed was the case when he coded using bimmercode the same thing to his M4, so I’m happy to meet up and we can hook it up and can go through it with you.
