    I think id be buying the proper tool for less than a ten spot than taking a chance on having to get it plugged in if something goes wrong but on yi go...

    They are ten sheets for a reason - not very complicated.

    Anyways it works for me on my E36. Never tried it on my old E46.

    Seems that the OBD2 on my model is a bit weird.

    It doesnt recognise the tool for doing a reset or the hand held code reader/reset tool but luckily the one that connects to the PC and uses the PCMSCAN software does the trick.

    All a bit frustrating but sounds like some of the 2001 models have the diagnostics enabled and some dont but not to worry car seems to be running like a dream *touch wood*
