If you want to have the best of both worlds, buy the MUCH cheaper cable from 'automotive-tool' on eBay as explained in another thread, download the free BMW software. You will then be able to do diagnostics, check/clear errors, code, and register your battery...
Is the BT tool pretty much obsolete then now that you can just do everything via coding? I guess it's a slightly more user friendly tool?
