Are you thinking of the GT-1? Which is actually a tool they have to purchase from BMW. There is a new tool required now for the K1600, S1000 and new H20 GS which the dealers have to lease from BMW for some outrageous monthly amount.

It's a program, almost like a service manual on PC. Step by step how to work on the bike.

I think some dealers sell it on DVD.

Rep-ROM. It is the service manual. It does not do any diagnosis of the bike systems. For that you need a GS-911

Yes, I was talking about the Rep-ROM.
Let me see how much Rep-ROM and GS-911 costs.

I have both since buying my '09 GS and believe them to be invaluable. They pretty much pay for themselves the first time you need them. The Rep ROM can be copied to a USB drive and taken with you anywhere. I have used the GS911 to diagnose problems on some of my riding buddies bikes which has also more than paid for the initial expense. Highly recommended IMHO.

The Rep Rom software is called ETK, probably a german translation for something like electronic parts catalogue?

ETK is not the service manual

ETK stands for Ersatzteilkatalog, and you are correct, it is the parts catalog which is avalible online for free. The OP was asking about the service manual, aka RepROM. RepROM is not the same as ETK.

not that I would ever condone such an action - but I knew a guy once, who downloaded the rep-rom files via torrent.

Gah, you're right. I've got 3 ETK icons, but forgot I need to mount the RepRom ISO to access that...

I'll go find something to blame the lapse on

AFAIK it includes 2010 models which is correct for 2011 and 2012 also.
