    hi there, i need a cable / diagnostic software for my 530d touring (1999), can anyone recommend somewhere i could get what i need.

    I can see a diagnostics round socket behind the drivers headlight next to the abs pump, i assume theres an obd one inside somewhere?

    Yes there probably is an obd under the dash somewhere but when you buy the cable you will have to buy the 16 pin to 20 pin adapter to fit under the bonnet. From year 2000 they scrapped the round socket and used the obd under the dash. Just search on the bay for BMW diagnostics. It'll come with inpa. Dis v57. SSS v32. Ncs and loads more. Installation can be a bit tricky but it comes with a good guide with screen shots. Good luck.
