How to Update DME ?


Can anyone tell me please how to update the DME on F10? I have the latest ISTA-D, ISTA-P, & ENET cable. Do I need to have ICOM?

Do I need anything else hardware or software wise.

Thanks in advance!

DME is a sub ECU, you need first to update ZGW and any other related ECU's
Now if you use ISTA/p it will guide you to do it the proper way (usually flashing the whole car)
if you use e-sys you can do each ECU alone, but problems may arise.

as for the hardware usually e-net cable is enough unless you have the first version of ZGW or your car have old i-step.
