    Will try tomorrow! If it works, I'll owe you the biggest pint of beer ever known to man kind! (I owe you one anyway, thanks bud! )
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    No luck, I'm afraid. Same thing. Unless I find a file for Non EWS M50, it's DIS for me.

    When doing the automatic identification, DIS says that it can't connect to the control unit and then lists the possibilities: It's a Non EWS car? Is the EWS working? and another one which I can't remember. So it's defo the EWS which is causing all troubles.

    Fortunately, DIS can skip that and go into manual mode, in which will connect to everything. However, I noticed that it's a lot more slow when engine is running. And sometimes I get the data transmission disturbed error.

    Unfortunately, INPA can't skip the EWS check, and I can't use it.

    Anyways, case closed for now, I'm pretty much resigned with this. Thanks everyone for input!

    No problem. I'll try and modify/re-write the DME331.ipo at some point over the next week - see if we can fix it.

    That would be absolutely awesome if you could, mate! I'm almost sure that would fix the issue.

    Update: interface definitely OK, tried it today on a 323i E36. INPA connects to absolutely everything, smooth sailing. So it's definitely a SW error, more to the point, the DME331K20.ipo.

    FAL mate, if you can re-write that, modify it somehow to skip the EWS test, you'd make me and the whole horde of 325 owners everywhere pretty happy! Been reading a lot on this and apparently this is a very common problem with this file, all 325/525 non EWS owners abandoned hope and switched to DIS.

    Try these. Add the .ipo file to C:\EC-APPS\INPA\SGDAT and the .prg file to C:\EDIABAS\ECU - https://www.rapidshare.com/files/311...4/mistreku.zip

    You, Sir, made me (and the rest of the non EWS 325's owners) pretty happy! INPA works now. Says something about version mismatch, I remember it was something easy to fix, but it WORKS! Thanks buddy, owe you big time for this one! Cheers!

    Is there any chance of getting this file uploaded again? I've been having the same probs and resorted to DIS for connecting to my car, but inpa works on all the others i've connected to.
