    If it's for the car in your car specs box you'll probably want a DCAN cable like this one

    Hi,
    does this mean I have the full functionality of diagnosing for all BMW 95-2014? Just like a VAG Diag HEX-CAN vor VAG?
    I don't want to purchase the wrong cable not being able to install the right software or accessing all necessary stuff

    to be able to use on pre OBD2 you would need the round 20 pin ADS converter for OBD1 as well as the above kit

    Well actually I was more concerned about 2000 - 2014 engines. so this cable would work and provide support for all available BMW Diagnose software for recoding for example "indicators as sidemarkers" and also error log reporting?
    In this very case for the E92

    yes its D-CAN so will work on new BMWs
    as for the coding that's the software and as long as you know how to use it you can do coding

    if ya car is Dcan then you need the above more expensive K-Dcan cable...if it isnt you can use the cheaper KKL setup cable...


    if its just the cable there are cheaper...quality unknown tho...
