You'll need a cable and the software can be downloaded by PM'ing Shawn for the latest posted link for your vehicle.

Go here to the M5 sub forum for the cross link:

This link tells you where to get a cable. That is the first step.

Shawnsheridan will link you to the software download. He is also on Bimmerpost with same name if you don't want to open a new account.

For anyone who is willing to pay a little more to simplify the process april1 will send out a cable and a usb drive with the software and data files. I think it was $50-75 for everything. He's on bimmerfest, and he's the second post on the above posted thread.

This is the best way to go IMO. Downloading is not hard, but you are talking about 25GB of downloaded data so it takes a while even with a fast connection.

+1...got to be patient and have a fast connection. This is a good option for those who want to get everything in one fell swoop.

I went this route as well, convenient to have the files cable and instructions all arrive together.

Anyone in the PDX Seattle area willing to do coding for $?

I will gladly pay to have all my coding done at once.

Must be a black belt in coding.
