Anyone built their own Peake OBDII connector adapter?

Hi,

I picked up a Peake code reader, but it just has the round ended connector (for the older cars) and my 01 has OBDII under the dash. I just found out the blasted "adapter cable" is like 60 bucks! I'm handy with a soldering iron...just wondering if anyone's built their own adapter? If so, I'd like to talk... Or, if someone knows a lesser expensive option let me know.

Thanks,
Mark.

I thought people were snagging them off eBay for 10-20 bucks.

Really? Ebay is where I saw them for $59.00. Is that pretty common to see them so cheap (10-20 bucks)? I can handle that

Have the same problem as I sold my 2000 and now have a 2006 325. Were you able to find one at $10-20 or did you build one yourself or what?

I still haven't don it, I'm sorry to say! If you find a solution, please let me know. (too many projects...too little time!)
