You can call up information about approved wheel/tire combinations for models from E36 or later.
Approved wheel/tire combinations
• Summer and winter tire recommendations
• Styling presentation of the wheels
• Snow chain recommendations



4. ISTA/P Online - Control Module Reprogramming



With ISTA/P you can reprogram the onboard control modules that are capable of software reprogramming.*

For ISTA/P, a data interface, a power supply and an Internet connection are required.
The data interface can be an ICOM or the "Pass-Thru Tool (PTT)" that fulfills the requirements of the SAE J2534 standard.
Only one vehicle at a time can be handled with ISTA/P.



5. P code Lookup Application




The P code module allows you to search for standard SAE P codes and BMW-specific P codes, which you can read out from the engine control units using a generic scan tool. The P code module is especially helpful for users who do not own BMW-specific diagnosis systems, but read out fault codes using a generic scan tool. The corresponding P code can be read out via the vehicle identification number.
