    Before you flog it, your ebay seller also does THIS. See if you can return it for an exchange

    Funny you should say that.....I found the same thing...but asked the open question....."even though my car is a 2000 it doesn't have an OBD port in the engine compartment.....what should we do?".....

    Just to see what options he offers.

    But do I need a reset tool at all, can't I use what is said in the BMW_service_reset.pdf?

    Cheers,
    Andy

    You can try, but I think that is for 2001 onwards. See if you can get into the menu at least and let us know if it works

    mine has one in the drivers side footwell and the circle one under the bonnet.

    can you not do it on the instrument cluster for early 99' e46's?

    Definitely not on your car...I used to own the same year E46 as you

    Ok, I just tried the pdf procedure and got it right the second time. It's now showing Inspection 15525 miles - before it was showing Oil 250 miles or similar. So that's good....but I definitely have an engine bay reset tool that's surplus to needs! I've had no response from the ebay guy but it's not really his problem. Not much use for the OBDII version of the reset tool even if he does offer to do the swap. Anyhow, always good to learn.....

    Cheers,
    Andy

    The pre-inspection date is 4th October 2000 according to the Service Book. Is there a stamp somewhere in the car for the date of manufacture?
