And don't think for a second that this goes unappreciated!

Ken,

Do you have a reader that will read both BMW AND Mini codes? I've been doing some research and if I'm correct, I'll need seperate readers for my cars. Can you confirm?

Thanks,
AJ

Hi AJ -

You're correct, the BMW and MINI tools are separate - we do not have a combined tool.

I just ordered and had delivered the R5/FCX-3-U tool. Scanned a cleared codes for both cars. This tool is super convenient.

Using a tool like the Peake Research code tool. Please read the article in the first post in this thread. All the answers are there. If you don't find what you're looking for in that article, email me- Ken@bimmertools.com.

I've got to bump this thread as Ken did such a great job explaining the differences/advantages of the Peake scan tool over generic OBD-II scanners. I couldn't say it any better so I figured why try? Thanks Ken!
