Have tested most odometer correction tools popular in the market..

Some success and some failure

Here are the test result and suggestion. Hope it helps you out.


Digiprog 3: NO

Digiprog 3 v4.94 will not do bmw f15. Digiprog can not erase original eeprom


Eeprom: NO

You don’t need to buy eeprom (eraser can erase these eprom ) only can filter and install in dashboard or FEM and Avdi, BMW explorer or …….

If it is with fem you can use can filter and have also to do dash
R270: YES
You can use vvdi prog or r270


E-sys: YES

It can be cleared in custom kombi coding with esys


Cheapest way:

Program new EEPROM with Xprog, filter in Fem will be cheapest

Eraser is about $110


Easiest way:

X5 has fem
Can filter in dash is easiest.
Remove battery First


Btw, i think not possible change it in new type of key f15 without change to new key.

buy new bdc, then key will take km from there


You’d better read –

buy new FEM ( 490eu) , buy New Ecu if it diesel ( doesn’t matter which engine) , program the dash on new KM

update the car with ISTA ( latest version—- if you have) and car will get 100% new KM in all ECU


but if it diesel , then Buy New Engine Ecu also


but be careful because all Ecu and Fem come out from fabrik in latest version of ISTA , which can not be LOW DOWN with another tools,

if you have ISTA online , then can not be problem at all !!!


I know the guy who have ISTA online with own server , and never get problem ….ISTA online is cost for 1 year 1800 eu .
