    I ask because you need an interface unit with the cable. Back to my original question, what software are you using? Is it Carsoft?

    Ah right! I think you have BMW's GT1 software installed. This is the interface and cable you will need. Not cheap .

    You still need the interface I'm afraid. When I said it's not cheap, I meant it....take a look...LINK
