    Sure it was a Vagcom KKL which Jim used at the Leicester meet unsuccessfully (maybe modified, can't recall now though)

    I reckon this might do the trick then;

    BMW diagnostic tool INPA OBD & ADS Compatible Interface

    Not cheap, but it's the only one I've found so far and would cover all bases.
    These things can pay for themselves in no time (hopefully) due to not wasting money on incorrectly diagnosed faulty parts anyway, so viewed like that it's money well spent.

    I have a working inpa on an old laptop with win xp. I used it on my old 2000 323ci, my old 2002 325 sport and my current 2004 316ti. But today when I went to help a fellow member on a 2004 320d it did not read the car. then I made the daft mistake of taking the usb out of port 1 and fitting it to port 2. the laptop went dead as soon as I switched the ignition on. its ok now after taking the battery out. but why wouldn't it read the car?

    It should read the car no problem , did you get as far as selecting the engine variant ?

    it never read the car. ignition was off and key off on the screen even though car was on. he got it to work after reprograming the lead. he has since put it back to what it was.
