    Would appreciate advice on the best (assume OBD2) connectors and software to interrogate the car (630 convertible).

    I have the ross-tech cable and software for my S4 (sorry!) and this works a treat - and would like something that does the same for the BMW.

    Also - I assume that the vag.com (HEX?) adaptor and ross-tech software wont work with the BMW?

    Cheers for any help.

    I also use inpa but found this easy to use as well and doesn't need the official cable.

    Demo version for BMW Scanner is here - http://www.bmw-scanner.com/download/...n_140_demo.zip

    This thread might be of use http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...ag-com-t68875/

    I reckon have a go installing Inpa and trying it with your vagcom lead.
