Well i heard from Carly today, i dont think it's for me.. It's not a fortune, but annual subs are not my thing for something I'd barely use after initial coding.

I think they are pricing them selves out of the market.
Well for the likes of me who only want to use it 3 or 4 times a year.

I'm new to all of this stuff and I'm not a mechanic. Therefore much info that's available would probably be wasted on me. I'll look into the Bimmercode option when i return to the UK 👍🙂

I'm struggling to find a solution to coding as well. :( No smart devices, so whatever it is has to be laptop based. I've got the cable, but have been unable to find a reliable source of software.

I paid £70 for both worth every penny even if you only use it occasionally if something goes wrong anytime you will always be able to scan and see what faults occurring on the spot mines plugged in constantly and regularly do a full scan to check or put dpf section on which shows all temps and dpf info
