Rheingold is a diagnostic program that replaces ISTA-D. At the moment, it is put in all official dealer services, but old versions are also registered. Once the new Rheingold has been fully revised, the old version of the diagnostic program will no longer be supported.
For older BMW versions, there is a BMW DIS dealer program that is also competent in diagnosing and coding models from 1995 to 2009. BMW INPA EdiaBas does the same.
The main distinguishing feature of the new version is the accelerated work of quick tests. The new Rheingold uses FASTA technology, which allows a complete vehicle configuration to be determined without going through all the blocks. The data is determined by the VIN number, and this is enough to determine the configuration data. The test runs quickly as there is no need to walk block by block for errors. The algorithm for erasing errors has also been changed: now the program automatically turns off and on the ignition.
The system requirements of Rheingold are minimal: you only need to have Windows 7 or later for correct operation, and the program itself practically does not eat up RAM. It was developed in MS Visual Studio, and the main emphasis was on minimal use of Java in order to speed up system performance, since the old version was developed purely in Java.
Various diagnostic interfaces can be used with Rheingold: E-NET, ICOM, D-CAN, Omitec USB and OPS. Older versions of the program had only ICOM support.
With this program, you can find out absolutely all the indicators of the car: what is the exact temperature of the oil, how much fuel is left in the tank, the total operating time of the engine, CO2 emissions, etc. There are also service functions available, with which it is possible to calibrate the transfer case, reset the automatic transmission adaptations, open the calipers for maintenance and much more.
Download Rheingold (links at the bottom of the page). For diagnostics, it will be enough to download everything except the SDP, BLP and ISTA-P archives (if available). These archives are needed if you have ICOM. Rheingold is ISTA-D. To learn how to determine which is which, you need to look at the prefix at the end: D - Diagnostics, P - Programming.
For programming, you need to use ISTA-P, but the setup has its own nuances.
After downloading the files, open the Tools folder. We start installing additional programs:
Go to the Tools folder, find the Patched_EDIABAS_7.3.0.msi installer (you may have it named differently) and install it:
