Excellent tool so far. no bricks or problems.
extremely fast for cas1, 2 & 3
for cas3+ if need downgrade 10 minutes and seems safe, ISN read from DME 10 minutes does not support all DME is down side.
make sure you have proper power on the car
cas4 /+ did not check

08-Mini Cooper – Added Key With CGDI Bmw programmer 
the wording was alittle confusing when it ask u is it a prox or non prox this car was a non prox so u push yes and for add keys u put your first key in the programmer slot then put your unlocked key in and then your done just make sure u have jumpers Hooked up so u don
t lose power and I had a surge protector on my obd to stabilize the power cas3+

So I purchased the cgdi programmer.

I figured out how make key for cas2-3 but I cant figure out how to use this programer for cas4. I tried looking online but only find for cas3,no instructions for cas4, can anyone tell me steps for cas4 I have f10 I can try one.

Cas4 can only be done by reading DFlash from Freescale cpu then load into programmer software and generade key. It can no ne done by obd.
Need xprog or vvdi prog to read the dflash.

CGDI Prog BMW Reviews

I just got the CGDI for BMW based on reading good reviews for their Mercedes tool. Have not seen much info for the BMW tool so I thought Id give a quick run down from my experience so far with the tool.

For making keys it has worked great. I have made about 7 keys so far all CAS types except CAS4.

I tried to read ISN on 3 cars and failed. I think it may only read ISN from MSV80/85 ecu’s. Will try on the MSV80 soon and will update. All done by OBD.

I have BMWExplorer and have used Autohex as well, but if you only need to program keys and your not concerned with ISN for DME swaps, I would buy the CGDI before those tools.

Its supposed to do ISN but the advertising wording can be misleading. It may only be able to read ISN of 2 types of DME. So far thats how its looking. Will contact my vendor to verify and see if there is an update preventing ISN reads.

For the money its worth it just to be able to program the CAS3 keys. It works super fast literally less than 2 minutes beginning to end. Faster than BMWExplorer for sure. I have yet to successfully do FEM key with Explorer so as far as Im concerned it has the same key programming capability as the CGDI.
