Diagnostic scanner
 
Thinking I need to get a diagnostic scanner for my 2005 325ci, can anybody recommend, from experience, which is the best one to get at a reasonable cost

I'd like to know too, I have an older '99 328i with the round plug in near the Jump start Earth point.

David McMahon 02-28-2013 09:52 AM

I have recently purchased the C110 bmw/mini scanner, seems very good, only thing is I couldn't get my round under bonnet port to connect to the scanner, however, with yours being a newer model you will have the square port inside the car so would connect no problem.....YouTube has videos of them working, very simple and effective.

Its a 16 pin to 20 pin adaptor, think i paid about 7 for mine, theres a few on ebay though

David,

Are you sure you dont have a port under the drivers footwell?? I thought i only had the 20 pin port under the hood but an AA mechanic ( dont ask) found the 16 pin connection under the footwell, this was yesterday!! Mines a 2000 328i tiptronic. I thought it was 2001 when they changed the position of the ports, i am obviously mistaken lol

Thinking of getting one as well for 2003 E46 compact.
Are they any good please?
Thanks

I have a c110 used it on both my bms spots any error codes and enables you to clear them also lets you monitor the systems on your car ie engine
