    To use it on your E36, set your ediabas.ini to STD:OBD, and set the com port & UBAT in OBD.ini and add serial.reg FIFO buffers as shown in the guide.
    Some pics I found that converts a VAG KKL to BMW compatible . Serial/USB chip modified and pin 7 & 8 shorted.

    I've never heard of this serial port chip mod. What was the purpose of the mod?

    90% of the time an unmodded lead is fine. I'd try without and then mod if required. You'll only need the blob of solder between pins 7+8 until you start dabbling with GT1 and want auto detection.

    I've unsoldered my lead so I can use it with Vagcom.

    That was my plan mate...try it first then modify to detect 12V and ignition on status if it didn't work
