Looking at purchasing a diagnostic software 'system' now, before I have a real need to buy one, then buy in panic.
What would be nice is a system that can be connected to my laptop in some way or another. I've seen the handheld units that display a code that needs to be cross-referenced either in a manual or on the 'net. Seems there is a better way to get the info, if given the right technology.
I've also seen the CarMD on TV - no thanks.
Does the E39 produce any 'special' info via the OBD II connector?
TIA for the info.
