Update ECU map

Hi,
I am new to this section.
I wonder if somebody can point me in the right direction.

I am wondering if I can update the firmware/ map of my ECU.

I drive E90 petrol 320i.

Bit confused, as where to find those files, and how to start.


Any help much appreciated.

Thanks.

Have I posted it in wrong section?

Or if they know, it is trade secret then?

You are in the right section

Most people are here to modify the settings in the car for simple things.
They only update when they have to put an upgraded module in.
From what I understand up dating modules requires long programming times
and you are advised to use a power supply to keep the battery alive during the process.
If you look you will find a few threads on this some also use Progman or
istap to update.

And the people that have done it suggest that is very risky and requires quite a lot of reading so if you don't know where/what winkfp is you probably should not be trying it

Which ECU

It updates any module and adds options or programs modules that have been replaced or upgraded . It was replaced by ista p to my understanding.
Its not for tweeking engine parameters specifically to my understanding though it may do that.
