    Hi all.

    I have just got my first BMW and i have got a few problems, these have been posted however nobody has a clue what is wrong and have suggested that i have my car hooked up to a diagnostics unit.

    Does anyone know of a good diagnostics unit foe a 2003 3 series 318i se. i have seen a few on ebay and they range from £18 to £800. If someone could suggest one that would be great.

    Cheers, Adam

    It will read all codes except it won't be able to reset the airbag ones....It is capable of all others,it will not do a live diagnostic read either

    Sorry i dont mean to sound dumb but is a live diagnostic when you do a diagnostic when the engine is running? my problem is that my traction control light and hand break light is solid yellow and this turns my engine off. this could be at high revs or coming to a halt.

    Cheers for your help, Adam
