    Your car will be OBD2, as for diagnostic equipment you will be best off with Carsoft as you can use it for more than just reading engine fault codes.

    Don't get a OBD2 scanner as they will not display the BMW specific codes.

    A Peake tool will only read engines codes unless you buy one of the other Peake tools, which will work out pricey.

    Also I've moved your thread to the Diagnostic Hardware and Software Discussion forum for you.

    From what I have read the edibas/inpa software is meant to be better for more modern bmws.
