anyone ordered or has the new Bavarian Technic Diagnostic Tool ??

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=229673

im quite interested in getting one after reading so much good reviews and how much of a "game changer" it is. anyone has one locally or is going to order one? or maybe the local BMACCA club should get a Pro version and rent it out..lol. i just hate that it only limits to 3 Vins/cars for the enthusiast version (which is likely what i'm going to get).

any thoughts?

My enthusiast version arrives tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I can get the 3 car thing defeated.

BMW owners must be oblivious to the economy. It seems like everyone is buying stuff.

that's true. it's like every time i buy something or wanting to buy something for my car, i feel guilty. you read everywhere how bad the economy is, how millions of people lost job, etc.. etc.. and yet we are here buying stuff for our cars.

aight time to move away from guilty conscience and focus on the next mods.

i just saw the sale from Mike (which isnt any price discount.. just free shipping), but i dont think i'm gonna pick it up right at this moment. just bought a couple other things and is in on the Helix FMIC group buy (btw, great deal if anyone wants it: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=232100 ) so gonna save money for that. will get the BT unit soon though.. after some more reviews and maybe even local reviews.

btw, can anyone tell me what their standard shipping cost is from BT themselves? just curious.

Yes. You have to download their drivers, and software and you are good to go.

Some other minimum requirements on web browser and microsoft .net that are very easy to meet if you don't have them.

Im gonna go out ona limb here and ask how/why you got that code. There are guys in the engine forum who are trying to 'force' the code so they can delete it but are unsuccessful. How'd you get it and what tune are you running!!!????
