    Has anyone ever attempted this? I want to code an early e46 abs module to my e36 (same part numbers), I've read countless amounts of forum posts about NCS, INPA, DIS, GT1 systems etc etc but still have no idea how to go about this. I'm planning to buy an ADS interface and setup a diagnostics/coding system on a laptop, what would be the easiest path to do this?

    Thanks for any help.

    Does anyone have any advice? Or am I the first person to try something like this?! must be quite a technical subject I assume.

    DIS might do it, but it was a BMW thing that would never be expected to code a second hand module.

    I've read that a garage with the autologic diagnostic system could flash the module, however, being an avid DIY'er I would rather have a system set-up myself. How would i do it via DIS? would i need to somehow get the original module data and flash it to the e46 module?

    Plug in the ECU, go to CIP in the DIS menu, and then programming and hopefully there will be some menu options to pick.
    You shouldn't need the old data, DIS has a database of that already.
