Once you pull your DME (It's also called the ECU) you need to replace it with another unit. When you put the new unit in, depending on which model E36 you have the ECU needs to be programmed by either your dealer or an independent BMW mechanic equipped with a modic/DIS. Cost to program? Around $50-$60. How much is a New DME? Grab your ankles it may run anywhere from $600 on up... BTW, who told you that your DME was shot???
