    Hi Guys

    Seen this cable on ebay which seems to come with INPA included.

    https://www.google.co.uk/aclk?sa=L&a...26adtype%3Dpla

    Looks like a bargain, is there a catch?

    Cheers
    TP

    Looks good to me send him a message ask if theres full refund if software or item doesnt work if hes says yes then he would seem a trusted seller also look at his feedback if theres complaints steer well clear looks good though that 1 page setup rather than 60+ ive never used this ipna as my local garage has proper software that cost thousands i find more reliable plus if i had that lead id be constantly checking and worry at the slightest fault...lol

    Had bmws nearly 4 yrs now never used ipna once

    better to by the BM Technic version, costs more but self installs and you get BMW DIS that actually works, people will tell that loading EDIBAS server and VMware is easy but I found it a ball ache, the BM Technic loader is just plug and play

    Bm technic gone off the scene apparently!!
    Ceased trading and people getting refunds when they order on ebay.
    I wonder is this another show of muscle from bmw Germany?

    I meant thousands for the software not how much it cost to create programme i was told £3,500 would buy the diagnostic kit at my local garage when i thought a few hundred would cover it i didnt realise how pricey they were i work at volvo so we have our own bespoke software similar to bmw that would cost alot to develop but we dont sell it to our vendors for millions as id expext bmw dont either

    some one uploaded it to the web and keeps uploading updated software too
    by the way the dealer software is GT1 and that is included too in the package
    if I was you I would get a copy and save your self a few quid on diagnostic sessions

    To be fair my garage does my diagnostics for free as he knows if there is a problem i will spend money with him putting it right but i see your point if you can save money i know i would just worry or want to test my car everyweek to check its ok if i had ipna none of my friends have it and we all get along fine plus if i had a pound for each time i read a thread saying ipna what does this mean id rather leave it to someone at my garage
