    Hi,

    I need some help with my wife's 1998 318is coupe (lila metallic).

    Does anyone know if the E36 BMW is OBDII Compatible? If so, can you recommend a supplier? I have the 20 pin adapter but don't trust the diagnostic kits advertised on ebay.

    Any help would be much appreciated! :-D

    if it has pin 15 present in the round interface socket its not OBD2 its ADS...

    you may connect to some modules with an OBD2 setup but not all..


    this explains it all as basic as it can be described..
