    Thanks Ian, very helpful, I will go and get those bits, hopefully I will get a nice easy install.
    I sold my VAGcom lead with the car so will get a USB BMW one and INPA..
    Once again thanks!


    IPWN,
    Exactly the "helpful" forum comment that I was looking for honest really....

    Just the thread I was looking for. Do any of the tools discussed show data in a graph form? Thing is that if you could see what a sensor is doing live and in graph form, it would be far easier to diagnose problems and see the health of sensors.

    I have not seen it on any of the diag gear. I guess you do get to see a bar moving where the values are displayed so you do have an idea of the sensor range.

    What's wrong with THIS FOR £20?

    My garage charged me £20 to read a fault code!

    looks good for the price.
    not had any personal experience with this tool but if it works,then it would be worth every penny!

    Good call!

    That is an ELM 327 cable, which reads generic OBD2 data, and it won't work on any BMWs before 2001, and even then, it won't read the diesels until after 2004.

    Have a read through the first section of this
    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...ostics-t51862/

    It'll give you an idea of what to look for.
