I just cant justify paying $225 for the 13 pin harness if i dont need it. The $190 for shipping is already hard to swallow.
No module, no t-esp or any of the other features

I'm so wishing I could activate T-ESP on my BMW 335d, but from my research, US cars weren't coded for it or cannot be. PFJones rep laughed at me for asking.
So I tried to compensate with my selection of hardware and electronics options. (See my towing post)

Part of my strategy was to buy a smart brake controller--Tuson DirecLink 200E OBD-based smart brake controller (always proportional to TV brake pedal % with user-selected biasing values for highway speeds & for slow speeds). I combined it with Hayes Swaymaster electronic anti-sway and mechanical anti-sway (Hensley).

Really loving the excellent tutorial collection thread!

So I need to get the 13 pin with the harness then buy a separate module? Sorry I'm a little confused.

Buy the 13 pin vw dedicated kit under the drop down menu to get a small combo discount.

321600300113 LHD 13 pin dedicated electrics kit

321600300153 RHD 13 pin dedicated electrics kit (this is what PFJones shows as the part number but ask in your order notes for the Left Hand Drive kit. This is still usable but requires more coding and has extra wiring loom to stuff into your interior. They sent this to me mistakenly but I still was able to install it.)
Kit has the module

Should've got a V-DUB

All kidding aside, t-esp comes from the trailer module which is then able to communicate with the BCM which sends signal to the abs and such to correct trailer sway. None of the u.s. vw come coded or able to do this by factory, but with installing the module and then pairing it to the BCM via vcds you're then able to unlock the feature. I guess my question to you is, does anyone make a vcds style interface for bmw?
If so, I'd take a chance and try it.
Or at the least ask around on those forums.
