    Cool From across the pond...Hi & Cheers

    Great to find so many BMW enthusists....This would be my third European vehicle. My first BMW.

    Almost two years ago I purchased a low mileage 1999 E39 528i Salon. (found it on Ebay). Drove 1400 miles to Houston Texas and drove it back to Orange county, Calif. Been doing real fine so far (happy to report). My first real reason for being here and as a DYI sort of fellow I need to do some minor diagnostics on my resent spotted warning light for the ABS system.

    Enter the INPA world and several other programs on a Laptop and hope you have the correct cable/adapter....I real nightmare and a real pain in the buttocks. So Now I venture forth looking for some helpful feedback for this dummy that's taken over any talent I thought I had prior to this encounter with the BMW world.

    Cheers seems appropriate
