I actually already have version 4.12.12 installed on my laptop, but I'm trying to help a buddy get it installed for himself and I did this 2 years ago and don't remember what I did haha.
No, sorry. I cannot help with ISTA.

No, there is not.

OK, thanks. So after setting up the software, to do my Euro MDM coding I'd want to:

1. connect to the car using the "...VehicleInfo=F010" (non-direct) Target & Connection Via VIN

2. Click Read (and, to be safe, save a backup?)

3. Click Read SVT

4. Select the CAFD under DSC and select "Read coding data"

5. Right-click the new CAFD file under said CAFD and select "Edit FDL"

6. Update the 7 entries listed here

7. Click "Save", hit green back arrow, right-click FA, and select "Activate FA"

8. Re-select the same CAFD file I did the updates in and select "CODE FDL"

9. Wait for that to be Done, then disconnect and I'm done?

Messaging with Shawn back and forth, I finally loaded the software to another laptop (work laptop had firewall, so it wouldn't connect). I went code crazy all morning. Coded the following:
- Euro MDM
- Rear Fog Light - thanks to tom @ eas
- Remove legal warning on nav screen
- Remove seatbelt warning
- DVDinMotion
- A/C memory
- Unlock doors at engine shut-off
- Brake Force Flashing

Refer to the VO coding document for the anti-dazzle or Euro LED headlight. U.S. DOT didn't approve BMW's anti-dazzle technology so you must change the vehicle order (VO). Follow each step carefully.

Cable Link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/OBD2-ENET-Et...135320&vxp=mtr

If you guys have any questions on how to get started, let me know. If you need the links to the software files, ping Shawn.

Shawn doesn't want any money for helping us out. If you're feeling generous, please donate to his buddy who's been providing the Coding Application data and hosting all the coding software/data. Paypal email below.

warpeddriveservices@gmail.com

I gotten hundreds of dollars worth of features for my car. I hooked his buddy up with a small donation for the support to the BMW community. Pay it Forward.

Once your software is installed, you'll just need these 2 documents attached. If you follow these 3 simple rules, you will not do any damage to your car:
  1. Never click on the "Code Default Values" button
  2. Backup (Read and Save) FA, SVT, and CAFD files before you start
  3. Only code the CAFD files (green circle)

Euro MDM parameter under DSC Module:
C_Laenderkennung => ECE
CTpmsMarket => EU
CPrewarnEnable => enable
CPrewarnIgnition => enable
CalLrPDevMax => 50kpa
CPInitRangeMax => 80kpa
UiaSetLevelPc => 20%
UiwSetLevelPc => 15%

More info here: http://x3.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=715297

I donít see those parameters at all in the CAF [DSC_CT01M]. I am trying to enable the Euro MDM. Any assistance will be appreciated!

older Istep versus newer Esys, GTS FDL code

Hi Shawn, am reading around and you really know your stuff. I am trying to learn how to FDL code my F82 to get the GTS steering, diff and maybe Euro MDM. Already BM3'd the DCT.

My I step is F020-17-07-507. I just downloaded ESys v3.27.1 and have a v4.27.20_PSdZData_Full file loaded.(not sure how to cross reference to versions called out on this forum like 58 etc. ?) Also have the launcher and Rearm and it fires up for me ok.

My main question is do I have the software correct and will I still be able to FDL code all GTS goodies less the DCT without any compatibility issues due to the older I-step??

Wanting -M4GTS coding; GHAS, EPS, ICM EDC/VDC -(DSC??); Euro MDM.

Any guidance and potential cheat sheets for this would be a blessing post Christmas here.

ESys v3.27.1 and have a v4.27.20_PSdZData is fine. You also need E-Sys Launcher for FDL Coding:

It should although PRO 2.8.2 is better than PREMIUM 2.8.2.
