The new control unit will need programmed to the vehicle before it will work. You will need either E-Sys or ISTA Next to program the vehicle.

There are varying levels of experts in the field of working on BMWs. I can't make any promises, but there have been other posts in this forum looking for i3/i8 immobilizer workarounds due to replacing modules with used ones. I helped this guy out a bit with his i8, but never heard if he found a final solution:

It should at least get you going in the right direction on what to look for. I would probably start with pulling up the module in E-Sys and doing a program/code on it with your vehicle FA loaded, see if that is all that is required. If not, then you will have to start tinkering with INPA and/or Tools32 to see if you can find an operation to relearn the EWS to the new module. I don't have a step by step guide for you, nor can I promise it is even possible. But to my knowledge, that will be your best bet

Looks like you already posted part of this over to the coding subforum as well.

You should program the vehicle at a BMW facility. When programming, you have to bring down the High-Voltage system or you can ruin things. Do not try and work with the HV system as you are not qualified to do so.
