    BMW TIS online

    Found this link on a lesser forum and thought it might be of use to people here. The interface is pretty basic, but it does the trick. Apologies if it's a repost! I'll sticky it somewhere if there is enough interest.

    Mk4 repair

    High OBC is easy, but you need to find a decent set of clocks. Auto/manual doesn't matter as that's down to coding. Petrol/diesel is all you need to worry about. The wiring changes take an hour or so, pretty simple. I think the kit was 70 quid and the clocks I got for about fifty quid. This was a good few years ago mind!

    I enjoy the fact that it's got an efficient dynamics thing advising you how to eek out your economy... It should just pop up saying "Should have bought the diesel!"
