    Hi all,

    I am struggling to find a decent but inexpensive cable for diagnostics in my 530d E61 LCI (date of production - June 2007). This car has already DCan.

    Would a cable like this be sufficient:
    http://www.sinosells.com/goods-636-BMW+INPA+KCAN.html

    Or an interface like this would be better:
    http://www.sinosells.com/goods-634-D...+and+INPA.html

    With the first cable would it be possible to make DIS work?

    Thanks.
    Kind regards,

    Not sure to be honest, that's the first time I've seen a DCAN lead with a interface box.

    Have you seen this lead before? It says it's compatable with GT1 http://www.doitauto.de/product/en/BM...Interface.html

    Hi.

    I have seen that cable also. Seems similar to the first link in my post, but probably of much better quality. It says for all vehicles (while the one in my first link says only until 2008) and it refers is compatible with GT1.

    Just wanted to check before paying the double for a "similar" thing.

    In the other case with the interface box, it says GT1 compatible, but I really don't know if it work OK.

    My car is Dcan and I want to be sure it works fine with Dcan.

    Thanks.
