All Requests, should be directed Here
Additional Details: Beginner’s Guide to BMW ISTA+
PROGRAMMING traditionally for all chassis, but F-/I-/G-series phased out with 3.63.5 release (March 2018).
ICOM Recommended. An ICOM emulator with K+DCAN or ENET can be used, but will NOT communicate over all protocols to program every ECU.
Replacement ECU’s must be NEW
Windows 7-10 Computer
ISTA+: 22 GB Installation + > 2 GB free space to run (Diagnostics Only).
