How to use BMW Rheingold ISTA

9-1

ISTA is a workshop system that contains BMW AG Data and Information. ISTA stands for Integrated Service Technical Application. Way back when, during the initial development of this tool, BMW diagnostic software (Diagnostics Information System), and as the programs evolved and due to the nature of the file naming conventions utilized by BMW, the workshop system became known as Rheingold in the enthusiast world. Rheingold in actuality is the folder that contains the main application and data. Rheingold became ISTA-D (D stands for Diagnostics) and BMW’s programming application (not discussed in this document) used the same nomenclature, ISTA except with a P (for programming) or ISTA-P.

BMW Rheingold 4.06.31 ISTA Functions List:

1. Module (ECU) errors reading and clearing

2. Gearbox (transmission) and engine adaptations erasing

3. Fuel injectors control, correction amount real time viewing, injector registering

4. Engine mountings testing

5. Mass air flow (MAF) testing and registering. Whole air system testing

6. EGR system control and testing

7.Turbocharger and related components control and testing

8. Diesel particulate filter regeneration (DPF)

9. Battery replacement

10. Oil change and service interval reset

11. Wiring diagrams, live data, repair instructions, technical documents etc

12. Programming, vehicle retrofit, mirror coding, FSC codes adding or updating etc

….

And many more other functions

System Requirements:

Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit)

Windows 8 or 8.1 (32-bit or 64-bit)

Windows 10 (32-bit or 64-bit)

Minimum system configuration is now hard coded into the program, although the standalone

versions have this check removed.

2.2Ghz CPU – 2 core minimum, core i5 or i7 recommended

4GB RAM, 8GB recommended

Minimum 20+GB HDD free space for ISTA+ Diagnostics with ONE language, and minimum

100GB for Programming Data.

This version has hardware check removed, however, future versions MAY not have this

feature. A faster system is required.

This version discusses included English Databases only. If more required, add to SQLiteDBs folder, which will need more space.

Interfaces and other requirements

Solution about MB STAR C4, MB STAR C5 Update and can not test vehicles problems

Make sure your computer hardware version is higher the Car Diagnostic Scanners Tools mb star c4 or mb star c5 version, otherwise, CSD will show update failed . Bootimage can update successfully. The following picture show how to check the mb star c4 or mb star c5 version1
3-1
The following picture is show your computer hardware HDD software version66
