We are excited to add new offer to our service list.
We see more and more failed FEM/BDC modules, Mainly they are damaged by cheap clone tools that are used for adding keys or matching with DME/DDE modules.
We've been Cloning / Reviving / Repairing them before but as number grows we decided to make separate page for it on our website.
This along with many other our services are mainly for shops and technicians who work on BMWs.

What is FEM or BDC?
Some models of F series switched to FEM and BDC from CAS modules
FEM stands for Front Electronic Module
BDC stands for Body Domain Controller
These two are pretty much the same
FEM is used on
1 Series - F20, F21 (and F52 in China)
2 Series - F22, F23, F45, F46, and F87 (M2)
3 Series - F30, F31, F34, F35 and F80 (M3)
4 Series - F32, F33, F36, F82 and F83 (M4)
BDC is used on
X1 - F48 and F49
X2 - F39
X3 - F25
X4 - F26
X5 - F15 and F85
X6 - F16, F86
Mini - F54, F55, F56, F57
The main reason of failed FEM and BDCs we have seen is done by cheap tools trying to add keys to them and failing
Obviously the other reason is when it gets flooded.
We do offer Cloning or Repairing service for existing FEM or BDC
How it works:
1) You will need to send us original FEM or BDC module,
2) We will check it and if its not repairable we will clone it to other unit.
3) Ship it back to you
