How to Set up BMW F, I, G Series Programming in ISTA+ (Not ISTA-P)

Problem:

I had error when programming BMW F32 in ISTA-P 4.19.13 Expert Mode.

Error:

Vehicle programming with ISTA/P is no longer approved for the connected vehicle.
Vehicle management is now only possible with ISTA 4.

*Before version ISTA 4 it was called ISTA/D (aka Rheingold).
It would cover diagnosis on all cars.
Beginning from version 4 its called ISTA+.

Obd2tool.com Solution:

The error indicates that  BMW F, I, G series programming is not available in ISTA-P (since version 4.19.xx), but in ISTA+ instead.

From version 4, besides diagnosis it also covers programming of F series.
and ISTA/P is left for programming of E series only (therefore ISTA/P can not program F series anymore).

Here’re tips to set up programming in ISTA+ ( Rheingold or ISTA-D).

Run ISTA+ software, identify vehicle

Then choose Service Plan
