For ecu, try bmw icom a2 or icom next (china clone or original)

But, for immo with key programming, there is no good solution

Reference: BMW motorbike diagnostic & programming issues

Best kit: ICOM A2 + ICOM D

… is kind of expensive but most people use this kit. So far, it is the TOP 1 in the BMW motor diagnostics list, with the most powerful & stable function (do well in diagnostic, coding and programming) and the best reputation.

1 Support BMW and MINI complete system diagnostic and offline programming.
2 Support to BMW vehicles up to year 2016
3 Support Vehicles including BMW cars, BMW motorcycle, rolls-royce, mini cooper
4 Support BMW all series diagnose and programming

Cheapest kit: K+DCAN cable and ICOM D

Attention!! The kit is for diagnosis only, not programming!…

How to setup K+Dcan inpa cable:

Notes

1/ Dependant on the software, model & adaptor cable used it may be necessary to invert RI #

and DSR signals to for detection of battery and ignition as per the VAG KKL cable.

2/ This cable & access through the diagnostics port is yet to be tested

INPA software Installation

1/ If the cable is supplied without drivers & utilities download them from FTDI

2/ Install driver

Plug in cable, WinXP will find cable,

point to directory with drivers, windows installs.

3/ Set the USB Serial port parameters

/MyComputer/Properties/DeviceManager/Ports(Com&LPT/SerialUSB/Advanced

Set the Latency timer from default 16 msec. to 1 msec

Check USB Port No matches Port No set in INPA/EDIABAS (OBD2.ini)

4/ Install Mprog & modify the programming of the eeprom FT232RL

We need to invert RI # and DSR # signals to fool the detection of battery and ignition.

After programming check your I/O Control settings, they must be :

#C0 = RXLED #C1 = TXLED #C2 = POWERON #C3 = PWRON

#C4 = SLEEP Invert RI ticked Invert DSR ticked

Save settings
