As per title really, Ive had a look at pretty much all of the OBC threads, mainly concentrating on the ones where you can add an 18 button in place of an analogue clock.
I know that the same operation on an E34 requires the OBC to have the correct coding plug but there has been no mention of it in any of the posts Ive seen. Is that because they arent coded in the E36?

they are coded as such but dont have a coding plug like some e34 OBC's, the e36 OBC coding has programmed binary values that can be changed if you want to open up a can of worms.

Mmmm, worms.
Would you be suggesting not to bother with trying a different version then?
I won one from a 320 this morning but I have a 318iS....Im not averse to trying to reprogram it but if the likelihood of buggering it is high then I shant bother!

The OBC will be fine in your car, I mean you can give yourself all kinds of headaches if you do try changing settings, see here for more info, http://www.unofficialbmw.com/repair_faqs/obc.html

Ah, interesting stuff....that second link is excellent, Id seen stuff about einheit values before but that actually gives the values for the different engines.
If I can get the OBC up and running I may well give that a shot.
Many thanks!
