This is not for the feint hearted.... The BSI is the brains of the car - it is located in the passenger glovebox on a RHD vehicle (with the various fuse banks attached to it). The BSI has to be matched to the engine ECU and the car key transponders. The BSI also has to be configured to match your vehicle specifications.

This is usually a dealer - only job as it has to be programmed and configured via their servers and checked manually afterwards. I would get some other advice / confirmation before venturing down this path. Who told you it needed changing and what reason / fault codes were provided to support this?

There is only one BSI. There are various fuse boxes attached to it and it's not easy to get to as you need to remove the glovebox to get at it.
