I agree with DJrabbi that the sticky has alot of stuff to read through. So what are the 10-15 mods? I only know of a few:

Lowering
-10 deg fan
Alarm beep with activation deactivation

Then there is programming to convert cars from:

Halogen to Xenon lighting
Adding navigation
Adding Bluetooth

What else?

SPEED LIMITER INCREASE

- On main groups go to "control Unit"
- then to "Drive"
- then to "ME9.7" (E63 any other model it may say something different E55 says "ME2.8")
- then press "enter" or "F3"
- then to "development data"
- then to "Control Unit Adaptation"
- then to "Control Unit Adaptation (Variant Coding)"
- then to "Implizite Kodierung ME97"
- then scroll down till you see "VMAX" on the left and to the right you will click the submenu tab to look for "300KM"
- then click "F3" and "YES"

DONE

Setting to change for "Rest of the world (RDW)" and "Keyless GO"

- On main groups go to "control Unit"
- then to "Body"
- then to "CGW"
- then to "development data"
- then to "Control Unit Adaptation"
- then to "Control Unit Adaptation (Variant Coding)"
- then to "Globale Variantencodierung Draco"
- the thrid and forth option should say "US" or "USA", replace that for "Rest der welt (RDW)"
- then scroll down till you see "keyless go" on the left and to the right you will click the submenu tab and select "Nicht Vorhanden"
- then click "F3" and "YES"
- to ensure it worked go to the "Globale Variantencodierung" and one of the first 2 or 3 options should say already RDW and if you scroll down, you should find the keyless go also and should be switched off.


DONE

here are some pics

this are just the steps to get to it, it should be the same except maybe the engine is not ME9.7 and is called something else but everything else should be the same.

i did it on a CLS and it was straight on forward but the limiter could only be raised to 250km

im trying to figure out the seat belt but i have not nail it yet.
i also need to work on the rest of them

i also did the -10 degrees on a E55 but i didnt take pics so maybe next time ill catch that.

Hope this is helpful, im not gonna do the one to lower the car bc thats pretty much done, im assuming, if not ill do it too.

PS: i've used the angles of inclination 3.5/-1.1 and 3.2/-1.2 for E class and CLS.
my car is actually set up with 3.2/-1.2 and is perfectly leveled.

Heads up that on some changes, the ECU needs to be reset/rebooted in order for certain mods to "take" or the ECU will reset back to previous config. Some guys do these mods and start her right up wiping it out.

Not even sure what the heck that means, just read it on a jcrecordings.com site when they were chatting about deep SDS mods.

Not possible as when you do the mods you need to click F3 and then it will ask you if you are sure if you want to make the modifications. Once you click yes it's done. The reset of the ecu is for the self learning. Now if you do the mod and don't finish the procedure and start the car it might set them back.

Awesome stuff guys thanks for sharing ... one thing for Gus, you must have Development DAS. I do not have the development option available in mine. Any idea how I can get the Developer DAS version?

Thought I would add some translations of what I could find from above (note I am not a German speaker so there may be errors)

Abstandsregeltempomat – Adaptive Cruise control
Scheibenwaschbehalter – Windshield washer reservoir
Innenraumschutz – interior Monitoring System
Diebstahlwarnanlage – Anti-theft (Car Alarm)
Heckrollo – Rear Sunshade

Also is there any way to save current configuration in case I screw something up?

Thanks!

yeah gus thanks for all this....I am sure when I get mine in, I will make PDFs for each mod and make sure it is a sticky!

p.s. when lowering, should the front be the same height from the get go? When i look at my car sometimes, seems driver side is lower. So my question is.....when i get into the system will it say i am off by x.xx amount?

Someone posted that there was a way to have the steering wheel controls (up and down arrow, left side of wheel) scroll up and down through radio presets, versus doing a manual seek like it does now.

This, and the "do not forget key" chime are the two biggest things I'd love done to my car.
