Yes I was seriously asking the question. From the looks of it the only part to have receive any type of water was the connecting port to the obd2. The actual board and usb side was not wet.

Sorry I spent $150 on this cable for my evo, just curious if it was attempted from another person coming from an evo to a 335i and using the cable. Just tried to see if it was worth a try If it wasn't affected by water as well.

As to the flooding what does it look cable look like and do you have something cheaper to test it on .
My guess is it could be cleaned in a solvent and dried out if it didn't
accumulate to much sludge.
But is it worth the risk.
I can see if it connects to the computer since it is also a standalone micro sd reader/writer. As far as clicking on the obd2 side I wouldn't be able to tell unless I try it on a dummy car but my beater got washed up as well. Not worth the risk though now thinking this through.
