Hi, I'm new to the forum as I want to get some advice about BMW maintainance. I'm considering buying a BMW X5 and wondering what maintainance manuals/software people use. Also what electronic diagnostic software is commonly available.
I'm currently an Audi owner and have access to Elsawin which is the dealer software for maintainance, ETKA which is the software which contains the parts list and parts assembly diagrams, and VCDS which is a VAG specific OBD2 code inspector. I expect similar software is available for BMW (even if not officially released to the general public) but I have no idea what to search for in the forums.
Could anyone shed some light on whats available. I don't want to go down the route of buying a BMW only to find I can't find any information for home maintainance.
