Coding other BMW cars with NCS

I have only ever coded E9X cars and 1 series which all come under E89

I tried to use NCS on my E46 m3 the other night and couldn't get it to communicate properly.

do I need to extract some sort of E46 file for me to use NCS with it?

INPA etc works.

Thanks

Each different series of vehicle have their own daten files. E36, E46, E60, etc. They are not interchangeable. Pm me for a link if you want them.

I use the bmw coding tool. It automatically copies the files into all the necessary folders. You can find it at **************/forums (u will have to join to download it) or pm me your email and I can send it to you this evening.

Open it, top right hand corner are two buttons, update SP daten and update WinKFP. there's another button I think it says daten source, (not sure, doing this from memory) Pick your E46 daten folder on your C drive as the source then go back and click on update sp daten and then update WinKFP and you should be set. I don't know if you use the coding tool to code as well, but it's the simplest way to do 90% of your coding. I made a youtube video to illustrate if interested

ok thanks!

I take it i will have to extract my E46 daten file first? its currently a WinRAR file pre extracted.

also. when i update the datens i wont lose my E89 daten files in NCS will i?

will this give me the benefit of being able to code both E46 and E90 as and when i want or can i only code 1 type of car ?

Yes, extract your E46 zip to C drive. You don't lose the files but switching between different series means you do have to update the files again with the series you want to code.
