    Hi. I'm new here so forgive me for any mistakes. I have just bought an E46 318i se built in February 2000. I am looking to buy a fault code reader but I'm unsure of which 1 will work on my car. I have the diagnostic socket under the dash and also a round 1 on top of the engine. I have been told that any Obd 2 reader will work as long as the car is Obd 2 compliant. This is where I'm stuck as I don't know how to find out if it is or not. Any advise or information from anybody on fault readers anyone uses or knows of would be much appreciated

    All I can suggest is to get a BMW specific reader like Peake Research.
