Does BT cable work?

I hate to ask such a stupid question but me and my dad just bought 2 335i's and we both want to put in JB+ at 100%( for cost reasons). How easy is this cable to use for clearing tuner codes? Also if we get blown HPFP can we clear the codes after its been blown? Also any software that is comes with etc? im getting the enthusiest cable

It comes with software and yes, it'll clear any of those codes. Its pretty self explanatory, I think you'll be fine

there are many many threads about the BT cable. It is so easy to do. The cable doesn't come with software per se, you need to download it directly from bavarian technic's website. You can clear all codes, including shadow codes. It is a used by professionals for running diagnostics on bmws. It truly is very easy!

Yes you should get the Enthusiast cable as it will be able to read 3 VINs. The software is available for download and updated regularly, and the instruction on how to download come with the cable. The BT is capable of clearing and reading any and all codes.

LEt me know if you have any more questions. Don't forget the JB+ come with a 6-month upgrade credit to the JB3 if you so choose

It works very well, and the software was desinged to mirror the dealers code reading and clearing capabilities. I spoke with BT at length about this awhile back. I had my tech do an HPFP replacement and he said he cleared the codes but I went and used my BT and i still found them so I deleted them and took it back to him and he could no longer see them and there was nothing in the history. Food for thought.

The BT cable can do just about anything. It's a good idea to have around just in case something happens.

Just got this as well, but haven't used it yet! Since the car is stock and running well, there should be nothing there right now.

It works and well-worth to get it

However, use a fast notebook for it >= 2.2 GHZ dual core to get 10 - 12 datalogging samplings per second.

Just tried it, works well! Have yet to datalog. I kind of wish my laptop battery would last longer, as I regularly drive 5.5 hour trips. That would be quite the log!

BT Cable works very well, it comes with fairly easy to use software too. Another option is the KiWi WiFi if you want a wireless solution for your iPhone.

Bt works like this.

Say you have a tune in your car or even stock and your car throws a service soon light or engine check light and half engine light or anything you think your cars having a problem.
You simply take the cap off the OBD thingy on your driver side left foot place than plug in the BT scanner code Plug the other USB part in your labtop. Install needed drivers and program which is two link you click and download and install.
Than you turn your car's power on but not the ignition which you do by pressing the start button WITHOUT THE BRAKES. Than you open the BT scanner program and click SHORT TEST MODULE. Bunch of codes or no codes will be shown from your car. Than you click Erase code and confirm yes.

DONE. Bring the car to dealer with tune out and dealer wont notice a thing.!
Grats on the new car btw. you can use the BT cable for both of your car and your dads for price of $300 which is worth it so much.
