The installation time on E81, E82 and E87 cars is 1.75 hours without SA 205 and 5.25 hours with SA 205, on E88, E90, E91, E92 and E93 cars it is 1.25 hours without SA 205 and 4.75 hours with SA 205 (130 kW only), on E9x cars with 135 kW 1.25 hours, and on F10 and F11 cars 1 hour.

F10, F11 LCI (built after 07/2013) with rear-wheel drive and SA 205 or SA 2TE 4.50 hours.

This may vary depending on the condition of the car and the equipment in it.

The installation time does not include any time for programming/encoding, as this depends on the age of the car and the equipment in it.

Important information

Use at least ISTA/P Version 2.52.2!

These installation instructions are primarily designed for use within the BMW dealership organisation and by authorised BMW service companies.

In any event, the target group for these installation instructions is specialist personnel trained on BMW cars with the appropriate specialist knowledge.

All work must be completed using the latest BMW repair manuals, wiring diagrams, servicing manuals and work instructions, in a rational order, using the prescribed tools (special tools) and observing current health and safety regulations.

If you experience installation or function problems, limit troubleshooting to approx. 0.5 hours for mechanical or 1.0 hour for electrical work.

In order to reduce costs and avoid any additional expense, send a query immediately to the Technical Parts Support via the Aftersales Assistance Portal (ASAP).

Specify the following information:

  • Chassis number,
  • Part number of the retrofit kit,
  • A precise description of the problem,- Work steps already carried out.

Do not archive the hard copy of these installation instructions since daily updates are made via ASAP!

Installation information

Ensure that the cables and/or lines are not kinked or damaged as you install them in the car. Costs arising from this will not be reimbursed by BMW AG.

All pictures show LHD cars; proceed accordingly on RHD cars.

Before exchanging the control units, transfer the IMA (integrated quantity compensation) values from the injectors.

After installation, the retrofit must be programmed / coded using ISSS (Integrated Software Service Station) via the – Retrofit – path.

On E91 cars (320d Touring and 320xd Touring) with only 130 kW, a V-max increase is possible by 10 km/h.

This must be activated immediately via a second password when the increase in performance is uploaded. If the customer wishes the optional V-max increase by 10 km/h, an entry of the tyres with speed index W

(up to 270 km/h) or higher is invariably required in the vehicle’s paperwork (see parts reports). If the car in question is not equipped with suitable tyres, these must be replaced (see ordering information).

Ordering instructions for E91 cars (320d Touring and 320xd Touring) only 130 kW

With the optional V-max increase by 10 km/h, the tyres must be changed with speed index W (up to 270 km/h) or higher (for part numbers and instructions, see EPC).
