I just bought a dongle and the Bimmercode app. (For an F25). 

I know there are overseas forums, but in the interest of local chat, anyone used this before?

Tips/tricks/recommendations?

Just run it and it'll tell you what you can code, module by module - fairly basic and straightforward. 

Wouldn't touch the expert mode for now :)

Yep i've used it, just for some basic stuff like coding out the fake engine noise and defaulting stop/start to 'Off' instead of 'On' in Comfort mode.

Pretty easy and foolproof in standard mode, but as Soba says, I wouldn't touch expert unless you really knew what you were doing.

It's not linked to a car right? You can flash multiple cars?

No, you just pay for a license and it will work across lots of BMW's. But only BMW's with an OBD and of certain series.

The cars it works with are listed here, along with an idea of what it can do with each of them https://bimmercode.app/cars/bmw/

They recently added E-series as well. Coding options hugely depend on your bimmer's specs. I.e you won't have folding mirrors if you do not have a comfort access.

I actually like it, probably because mine is a diesel :D

Realise there are some options you need to have. I have folding mirrors (by switch) but no comfort access. 

Also a fan of fake noise - Can you change the noise to say M5 fake noise?

You sure can, ASD module but most likely you'll have to go into the expert mode.

To be fair, I have got the M performance exhaust fitted which is plenty loud/grunty enough on its own - the fake noise on top of it just made things actually unpleasantly loud.
