For being low cost, I think 2M does very good work.

My Ride: E46 M3
Anybody in SD area with a GT1 or Auto Enginuity or Bavarian Technic diagnostic tool do me a big favor this week? Looking to purchase an E46 M3, but live in the SF Bay Area. My cousin in SD will be looking at the car for me, but I'd like peace of mind of knowing if the car has any codes thrown to give any indication if the car was or is having any underlying issues.
If you can help a brutha out, PM me please! I'd greatly appreciate it and will buy you dinner, a case of your favorite brew, or something of that nature. TIA!

Probably best bet is to go to Euro Auto Stop and have them check it out. They got a GT1.
