    You're kidding, right?

    34 posts.. No, you're not kidding.

    Search, man. There are dozens (at least) of vendors of OBD-II hardware out there. Hell, search the forums and see where people bought their stuff.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      The Suibject

      If you notice I put the year, make and model as the subject. I didnt know if the same cable works for ALL BMW's. So believe it or not. There wasnt a joke, and yes I did search. So basically its uncalled for to flame someone for asking a question. I found information on a X5, but thats a 2000 X5, theres a X3. Still not "my" X5. Alot can happen in two years for changes to a vehicle. So please dont bash people because they asked a question and assume that they dont use the neat feature called "search". I have, I know how and I have always searched before asking a question. Now...that we have this going, you wasted your time, space and started somthing, rather than just helping. I would bet if half the messages on this forum would be gone if half the messages didnt state "search, your kidding, or bashing a person for asking. This place would be even more of a wealth of information for people such as myself. Instead of sifting through a bunch of flame/bash "your kidding right?"

      But, always hopeful, thanks anyways for the bash, and no information given.

        Get off your high horse, man. You're the one who posted the general question "Where can I purchase Product X".

        If you'd search these forums, there are many vendors of OBD hardware/software that members have used. But you don't bother to look.
        If you'd Google, you'd find even more.

        If you had a question about a cable you found from a specific vendor, why don't you ask them if that cable will work with your model year?

        I'm sorry, but asking a question like "Where can I purchase such-and-such?" in a forum is not going to get you any love, buddy. If you don't kknow how to locate a vendor for a specific product, that's not our problem to rectify.

              I have the same X5 and I am using ELM323 chip for OBDII reading.

              The interpreter chip

              The ELM323 was specifically
              designed as a low-cost solution for
              interfacing a PC or PDA to a vehicle
              diagnostics connector. To keep things
              simple it communicates at a fixed
              baud rate of 9600 baud and does not
              offer a handshaking option for the
              RS232 interface. In addition it is only
              able to communicate using the
              10.4 kHz ISO 9141 Protocol. This standard
              is the most common used by the
              majority of European and Asian manufacturers.
              Vehicles built in the US
              use VPW and PWM protocols and
              suitable interpreter chips are also
              available from Elm Electronics.

                      you would have gotten the exact answer from any one of the vendor's sites. When you go to there site they have this, list that lists all the makes and models and what cable they work with. and what the specs are for the cables and the scan tools.
