I've been experimenting with similar BMW update software on my E46 car, since I am in the process of replacing a faulty ABS module and will need to recode a replacement unit to my car.
Interesting that this can be done with the KGT too. Last year I installed a replacement, used, ZFE module to fix an ESA error. This worked fine, and everything is working, but when I run my GS911 diagnostics I see that the level on the replacement ZFE differs slightly from the factory installed level and always wanted to correct that.
If I ever get the time, I may try to get the BMW software working for my KGT, but i suspect the gains won't be worth the effort.
My thinking is that unless we can "persuade" a BMW technician to go rogue and help with using the BMW software (anonymously) we will be stumbling around for a long time.
