I spoke to the 2 guys that owned each E30 M3. One got his from Germany. I didnt think that one came from japan. Its plate says its NZNew http://www.carjam.co.nz/car/?plate=1988m3

Correct. Not a dipstick in sight! You can view the level on the idrive (computer) screen. Also no temperature gauge.


Wew.  What happens when the computer tells you your engine is at a safe temperature when it isn't and your oil is fine when it's not?   You can't exactly be called careless by BMW if your vehicle blew up.  Especially if it was all serviced on time.


It would be incredibly incredibly rare for something like that to happen. I think you would find BMW most supportive in that situation.

It may be rare, but we are all computer enthusiasts here...And we know what goes wrong!





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

blame the confusion on
money grabbing personalised plates for allowing plates that are too close for comfort.

Andib: Can you not just buy yourself an OBDII scanner off amazon and run that through your phone / Laptop? The service software is easily enough found :)

BMWs after 1994/5 are so easy to do this... and you can control interior lights, door locks... pretty much anything!

I haven't had a real good look. Still waiting on the cable. I've only had the 740 for 5 days :)

I have used the software that's recommended off the boards.

Its difficult to work with, even with the guides.

Most car software is... That's why they have machines with big buttons for dumb apprentices :D
