    You are mistaken, we haven't made any web-site changes lately.

    You still don't want to admit you're mistakes now do you. There's nothing wrong with my memory. I read very clearly that the Peak was supposed to support Diesels. Now you say it doesn't. If you would admit your mistakes that would earn you some respect. Now all you get is my contempt.

    You have never been anything but contemptuous, and I have no idea why. Forums are not places for this type of thing.

    You need to check again, because you are mistaken.

    I would suggest you have looked at the FCX-II which covers only petrol, the FCX-3 covers diesel.

    It is easy to be negative and disrespectful when you hide behind a handle, and are not explicit about who you are and exactly what your business is.

    I am open and honest about who I am and my business, and would gratefully appreciate it if you stopped harrassing me.

    Actually the reasons why you cannot read the DTC's with a OBD2 scanner on European E36's with a 20-pin connector are very simple.
    The 320i and 325i were never made OBD2-compliant by BMW, because sales for these cars stopped in the USA in 1995.
    The 1996 USA 318i uses a different engine and DME than the European 318i.
    The USA 318i has a 1.9L M44 engine and the DME is a Motronic M5.2
    The European 318 has the older 1.8L M43 engine and the DME is the old Motronic M1.7.x
    The USA 323i and 328i have a different DME. MS41.1 in the USA and MS41.0 in Europe.

    Need to revive this old thread, as this information is a VERY depressing for me ..

    How about the M3 Euro versions (1997)?

    Guys, I also want to revive this thread.

    Here is what I have found out so far..

    None of my cars are US or UK. They are Asian and I think they are more likely europe-based.

    My E46 has the M52 engine and hence it is OBD2.

    My E36, however, has an M50 engine and it is not OBD2.
    I looked at the ECU of the M50 engine and it is MS40.1
    If I remember correctly (I dont recall where I read it) only those with ECU MS41.x and above are OBD2 compliant.

    I'd also be interested to see if you have other info to add as well.
