    Hi mate

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    I'm not sure but I think this adaptor can be used with INPA and a BMW compatible USB VAG-COM lead
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    You'll need a serial port on your laptop or a PCMCIA to serial adaptor (as below) to use that one, it should work ok with INPA if you use the 20pin adaptor above though
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    Don't bother with that, they don't work well for car diagnostics, you'll need this instead http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/RS-232-Port-9-...item2a03f1558b

    Lastly http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT that lead isn't compatible with BMWs out of the box, it needs some modification to get working.

    Just for fun (yes, I know I'm sad!) I'd like to delve into this a bit more, if you bought the adaptor lead in the first link then I'm more than happy to help you try and get it working with the modified VAG-COM USB cable I've got for INPA.

    I've ordered another VAG-COM USB lead (16 pin) which I'm going to modify myself to get BMW compliant, if that works then I can pass it on to you. I haven't got the link to the site which details the modification on this PC but I can post it later.

    I think your best bet is to try and get the VAG-COM USB lead along with the 20pin adaptor working in the first instance and then resort to using a serial connection if need be later on.

    Let me know what you think

    First question is, does your E46 have the 20 pin connector under the bonnet?

    The vag-com cable doesn't always need modifying. I'll have a look into it what cable modifications you need when I have a bit of time as I've only ever worked out what I need for my E36. If it does need modification it's just a blob of solder between pins 7+8 that's required.

    I bought a chinese cable, serial, called "INPA/EDIABAS Compatible."

    You need the 2 K lines for BMW. VAG com is only one. I forget which pins.
