I'm a little embarrassed to say that I'm a Mac user and don't own any PC hardware or else I'd try it myself. I'm having a friend help me tho so thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

Mac user here, as well.

I bought a used $50 laptop (though I then spent a bit to put an SSD in it) I keep in the garage, just for BMW tuning/coding/diagnosis/data logging.

But, even if you don't want to do that... could just do a boot camp partition on your mac for $0.

Macbook Pro user.

Just install VMWare, VirtualBox, or Parallels. Install Windows XP or Windows 10 for free from Microsoft's website. That's all you need to do. I have yet to find a program for this car, that does't work going this route. I have a dedicated Windows XP virtual machine installed on my MBP, purely for my M3. Problem solved and it cost me nothing!

I'm using a Macbook Pro and have Windows 10 installed on Bootcamp partition. No issues at all with Binary Mod tool, but I am having issues with BMW logger. Can't get it to do anything but read the codes...

Do you have a license for BMWLogger? It doesn't log with / connect without one.
