ok maybe this is a good time to jump in:
I am new to the coding game (diy wise) but now I want to do it myself.
1. I'm not afraid of computers
2. I have an 05 x3 176k on it (I need to recode or re- initialize) to get the rain sensor and headlights working in unison.
3.i have the special cord needed that connects to the car obd2 computer $15 bucks...i think a disk came with it as well.
4.I have requested the program from this site months ago...it in my in box and ready for download.
From what I read I will need a laptop dedicated souly for the purpose of coding...np....but!
5 I'm not clear on the computer need?
OS needed?
RAM needed?
anything else???

You do not need dedicated computer.

ISTA+: 22 GB Installation + 2 GB free space to run (Diagnostics Only).

Thanks Almaretto.

Extraction of the new package will require 40+ GB space available. Packaging will include English, German and Czech. If other languages are not required, they can be deleted and gain some more space back. Make sure that all required support software e.g. redistributables are installed.

You can use Windows 7 with SP1. Win XP is not compatible with newer versions. You use NCS Expert for coding. ISTA+ is for Diagnostics on E series and diagnostics + programming on all other series.

Find the Beginner's Guide to ISTA+ in the stickies and read through it to get more info about ISTA+.

For coding related info, look here https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=638188

VC++ Redistributable - required to run ISTA+. Look in the "VC Redist Links.rtf" file for download links.

Hello,
I have version ISTA D 3.56 installed in my language. What is the benefit of installing version 4.09? novelty or nothing special for reading defects on my F31 of 2015 ..?
Thank you .

Thanks for posting this. I did not realize there were 2 EDIABAS.ini files

There was just another release. There are other F45's in DB. But, you can easily check with VIN if supported. What are you looking to do on vehicle that has not even been built?
