What is BMW SSS Progman v32?
BMW SSS Progman v32 is an abbreviation of \"Software Service Station with Programming Manager\". It is a software system that was used by BMW dealerships to diagnose and program BMW and Mini vehicles from 1987 to 2009. It consists of three main components:
EDIABAS: This is the tool set that communicates with the vehicle modules and provides the interface for the other components.
DIS: This is the \"Dealer Information System\" that provides diagnostic functions such as fault reading, resetting, testing, and creating test plans.
Progman: This is the \"Programming Manager\" that provides programming functions such as updating software, changing vehicle order, coding modules, and personalizing settings.
BMW SSS Progman v32 works with all BMW \"E-Series\" models from 1987 to 2009 and all Mini \"R-Series\" models from 2001 to 2009. However, it requires special BMW supplied connectors and cables to perform these functions. You can use either a serial ADS cable for older models or a USB K+DCAN cable for newer models. You can also use a BMW DK (Yellow Head), OPS, or OPPS interface if you have one.
