Default Diagnostic software

Hi Guys,

I am thinking of buying myself some diagnostic software and hook up for my '99 S50 MC for Christmas.
It doesn't have an OBD port, my current software (Delphi) is very limited through an OBD/20 pin converter.
My current understanding is that I will need INPA software through an ADS serial interface to get full access to all systems.
I do have an old netbook with Win XP on it complete with serial port, so thats my starting point I guess.
Does anyone know where I can obtain a setup at a reasonable price?
Found this on Ebay :- eBay item number:273435469976
Looks good but I have asked if it is in English as well as German!!

Howard

I have just bought a diagnostic kit from;

cable-shack.co.uk

The kit comes highly recommended from the e39 forum. Apparently the after sales is great. Some people who had problems programming their cars software have mentioned the owner of the site has actually logged into their laptop and controlled it himself. And then he can program any modules etc for you, from his house! All part of the service.

I emailed the site saying I have an e39 and an Z3M Coupe S50. He told me I need to order the K-Line Diagnostic kit for the M Coupe. £34.99

Like I said I have only just got it, so I can't give any personal reviews yet.
