You don't need ADS for coding. The same rules applies here.

If you can talk to the module you can do diagnostics and coding.

So ADS for all modules, but as said, most important ones you can access with any Windows laptop/netbook/tablet and USB cable and 20 pin adapter (if I mention ADS I mean the whole setup, not just the 20-pin connector).

I've had it for years, no idea. But maybe you have it as well.
Sometimes versions if the application and the loader are mixed up. Could be I'm doing the same. Will check.

Also for ADS don't use Ediabas 7.x.x, keep it at 6.x.x.

Been playing around with config files and noticed testfiles not called in any INPA version/menu. I editted some files to call these testfiles and to my surprise I found a complete new menu for individual SMG test, normally only available through DIS, which also does the complete process. Pretty cool stuff.

You want an INPA setup. A USB variant is more than enough for your needs. If you want to expand into module coding you will need a laptop with a serial port and an ADS cable.

I can set you up with a full INPA configured laptop and USB cable if you want.
OP...this is the MAN who set me up within two weeks of owning the M3...he'll lead you on the right path.

Lol, it's neither rocket science, nor black magic.

There are whole forums dedicated to car coding.

Thanks for the input so far, I guess I have some more research to do.

I use x431 pro3 with the $50 yellow easydiag adapter you have coding, data full options for all modules. For all makes.
