    That's a bit of overkill for just getting live data from an E46. Have you considered Carsoft or Inpa?

    Inpa could be done for about £15! Have a search on here

    has anyone actually had a generic hand held scanner working on an october 2000 E46 318i M43. I note in a previous thread that tiger tim had trouble with a U480. I just brought one and get link error. I wonder now if there is a glitch in the OBD2 compliance of that model BMW. The U480 scans for a range of protocols but cant establish link connectivity - why is this I wonder. The good news is that the car is going fine and I dont actually need this. I dont want to set up a PC based scanner without understanding why this wont work - advice appreciated
