Anyone offer remote coding with my Rheingold? I WILL PAY!!!

2011 BMW 740Li.

I have Rheingold ISTA/P and ENET cable but this coding is much more difficult than I anticipated. Would someone be willing to coach me over the phone or through remote connection for a fee? I've got the car connecting and downloading module info but getting into where I change values to activate or deactivate features has me drawing a blank. I just dont understand it like I thought I would and I dont want to **** something up.

Do you have E-Sys? Rheingold is for diagnostics.

I disagree. ISTA/P is for coding and programming and that is what I have.

Other than the cable, everything else can be found online.

Go and get esys. Ista/p is not good for coding. DIY are all here on bimmerfest. Ista/p is for programming and to perform "standard" codings

What Robin said is correct, ISTA/P is not Rheingold (aka ISTA/D, ISTA+ etc.). ISTA/P is for programming and some coding. Get your facts straight and ask again.

ISTA/P is NOT Rheingold. Just because someone advertises it as Rheingold, doesn't make it Rheingold.

Sorry, but I think SHMG is right, Rheingold is Ista/P, Ista/D, ISPI next and so on. Rheingold is the maker of the software. That's not the name of the software!

If ISTA/P is not Rheingold, what is it then?

Rheingold is a software developer, who made ista/D for diagnostic and ista/P for programming. That's it.

For coding follow this link. http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=631884

Err...no.

ISTA/P = Programming and Encoding (VO Coding) of all Models.

ISTA/D (Codename Rheingold) = Diagnosis for all Models. 3x versions also capable or Programming and Encoding (VO Coding) of F/I/G Series cars.

E-Sys w/ PSdZData files - Custom Coding (FDL Coding) of any F/I/G Series car.

Thanks Shawn! No offence to the guy who posted it, but I had a Tim and Eric moment when I saw the Rheingold developer reference!!!
