Best software / lead for e46

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have an E46 M3 & 330d and would like to be able to read any fault codes etc...

With these being older models what's the best software / lead package that i should be looking at?

Thanks in advance

Darren

Anything from Bimmergeeks.

Their stuff just works.

You can use their software (extra cost) or they have some guides on how to use their gear with ISTA and INPA which can be found for free.  They take a bit to learn whilst the bimmergeeks software is easy.

BMW Standard Tools on the E46Fanatics forum works well.  It is INPA plus the other software tools needed for module changes etc.  https://www.e46fanatics.com/threads/how-to-install-bmw-standard-tools.1274003/

I also have a Foxwell NT530 scanner with BMW software.  It's not too bad for a hand held scanner.  Works in both OBD2 and BMW modes.  Plus it has a data logger.  I use it in OBD2 mode for general engine issues like rich/lean running problems, as the OBD2 fuel trim information is easier to understand.
