    Hi Community I have installed ISTAN+ 4.25.40. Everything looks fine, but I can't set up connection with car. When I start reading car details it shows me the ICOM Interface to select. After that it is connecting to the car, but if fails to read VIN. I have tried with F31 and E90 - always the...
  2. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    Hi all, I have searched a lot related to this topic but unfortunately didnt find a straightforward solution. I have F22 (2015) with Adaptive Headlights. After an accident I have replaced my left headlight from another F22 (the part SN is the same). I am getting "Adaptive headlight...
  3. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi guys, I need some help. I imported a great looking BMW 316i E30 from Greece to Denmark in the winter 2017. The car is modified completely to a 325i E30 with a M20B25. We have very strict rules here in Denmark about modification of cars, and therefor, I need some documentation for this...
  4. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Morning! Looking at buying a 1999 e36 convertible this afternoon. After checking it out in person I asked the owner to text me the VIN - He did, and I cant seem to get any decoders online to recognize it :thumbdwn: Not sure if maybe he transposed a number or if it doesn't exist? I spent a good...
  5. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey there fellow enthusiasts! This question has been bugging me for a while now :mad:: Does anyone know why some X5's start with 5's and some with WBA's? If they're all assembled in Carolina then why would they slap on a foreign vehicle identification number? :dunno:
  6. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I need some help with VIN decoding please. I have been using BMWVIN.com to check out some E70 X5s and I can't seem to find a listed option that clearly defines the factory hitch installation. On a couple that I am pretty certain have factory hitches I get the same options (trailer connectivity)...
  7. X4 F26 (2015 - Current)
    I just got my VIN number and the 11th digit is a "U" Which plant code is this? Vindecodr doesn't shows plant but all other Dara's was correct so I guess VIN number itself is correct. It is not RR. Anybody had same kind of code ?
  8. F07 Gran Turismo (2010 - 2017)
    Hi! I own a BMW F07 -10 which has the Stop&Go function installed from factory, but the radar has broken and the unit gives an "Internal fault" error code. I went on Ebay and ordered a used ACC Radar with an interchangable partnumber to the one i currently have. I then had to return the radar i...
  9. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I have a BMW X5 2004 in very good condition. I had a Tech remove and replace starter. That done, my engine started a noise . . . Tic Tic Tic. sounds like metal on metal. Frankly I think the guy swapped my engine. He has a BMW X5 2003. May I look at the VIN and serial number of my engine to...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Today I just bought a 2010 (or is it) 528i xdrive. The Dealer said it is a 2010 and the carfax report says it is as well. How ever a lookup at http://www.vindecoderz.com says it is a 2009. This is interesting because after noticing the difference between the iDrive system in this car versus...
  11. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello all, I'm new to the forum, and am strongly considering purchasing a 2008-2010 E61 535xi 6MT to replace my current Saab 9-5 Aero SportCombi 5MT. My only previous BMW was an E30 coupe years ago, and I still miss it to this day... I'm in Canada, and there are very few of these cars listed...

    I've recently had a retrofit NBT installed on my 09/12 F30. I have taken it to get the KOMBI upgraded and the BMW dealership have said they won't do it as the car is coming up with two VIN numbers. Is this a common problem? If so, is there anyway of reflashing the NBT 1DE file to take my VIN as...

    Hi All - I'm in the market for a used 328 and looking at listings through the Mannheim Auto auctions. I have found a few listings that I like, and am trying to validate what options are installed on the car using the BMW VIN decoder. The option that I am interested in is the Parking Distance...
  18. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Hey guys. Im new to this. I read all the threads and find them very helpful and have saved me some $$$. I am in a bind. I called my BMW dealer to get the service history for my car that I bought two weeks (750 65k miles) ago from them. They are telling me the BMW manufacturer doesn't allow the...

    So I have 2004 M3, I wanted bluetooth a couple of years ago and my car came with a tcu that had a bt passkey but did not function; I went on ebay and purchased another tcu from I believe an 05 330. So I swapped the modules out and I've had bluetooth ever since. So everything works but one thing...
  20. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello All Gurus: I have been reading and reading and trying to code my new head unit to activate CIC. I have E60 with a head unit replaced, thus navigation greyed out. I even installed an emulator but it did not activated navigation. Running INPA to see UIF I noticed both mostgateway and...
