    Diagnostic software for PC

    I have recently acquired a 2008 118i M Sport automatic E87 and require to set up some diagnostic/programming software on a Laptop PC.
    Initial research mentions things like DIS V57, INSTA-D, Rheingold etc., but I'm not yet sure which way to go. Can anyone point me to useful reading for a newbie on this subject?
    I have ordered a K+DCAN interface cable.

    Put Rheingold in search on here. It's probably more suited to your car than the older stuff

    Thanks e36coupe-328 for your reply. I don't think that my current Laptop is powerful enough for Rheingold, but I'll give it a go anyway.
