  1. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi Everyone, I'm staying in Belgium and just bought myself a (relatively) low milage E39 520i from 1996. It's a great machine and all but it only has a 20-pin socket under the bonnet for diagnostics. I know where the OBD2 sockets usually are on this model but mine doesn't even have the...

    Hello, I have an OBD1 E36 320i (M50B20 with Siemens MS40.1 DME) I wondered what there is available to read codes on the OBD1 E36 cars, I only have a service reset tool at the minute. I don't think I can do the 'stomp test' as Euro cars didn't have a CEL I'm not sure about whether that may...

    Hey Guys! I recently bought a converter cable from 20 pole to OBD II in the belief that it was plug and play with a normal OBDII software. But I can't connect to the car. I've tried with OBDWiz and ScanXL Pro. So, do you know what software I can use with the cable, or should it work with...

    Cheers from Finland! I am about lo lose my mind soon! I have been searching a suitable software for my 1995 740.With no luck at all. First of all I don`t know anything about diagnostic softwares. OBD1 doesn`t provide much information so I don`t need INPA/EDIBIAS I think. I read on 2015 BMW...

I know I have to bypass the ews box by crossing the 2 wires and the 320 brain has no ews. I am reading up stuff like the car...

    So my car has the M50 engine with the single VANOS system. I am looking to gaining some more horses out of it. My ultimate goal is 230-240 hp at the wheel, although that is more of a long run goal. I was therefore wondering what parts out of other engines i.e. the M3's i can use as to increase...
