Is it absolutely necessary to use tool32 to write the vin to the frm2 and I guess the ahl modules? I think this may be the step I have missed. I didn't bother with tool32 because I couldn't get it to work. Every time I would enter my vin I would get an error. Now that I think about it, if the vin is, say missing a character will I get an error? That could have been my problem. Can you give me steps on using tool 32? Is there a specific daten file I should use? I was using v45 for e89. I have a 2006 e90 325i pre-lci with halogens and I retrofitted ahl euro lci xenons.

Edit: I did use winkfp first to update the software on the frm2 and change the vin and that did workout fine just not tool32.
