All the cables made from that company (one-stop and doitauto) is fully tested. The design and QC is done by the owner and he is from Munich Germany. Only reason why the cables are made in China is because 90% of the materials (micro-controllers and ICs) come from there.

Now you can go here,

offer him $90, and he'll ship it to you, it is the same cable.

I'm assuming that wire doesn't work on a pre 03/07 build E92?

What wire is recommended in place of it?

And also - the auction states up to year 2008, however here is yet another answer I got:


Dear 1qwikws6,

It will work for 2009/2010 cars as well, was tested and confirmed, however you will need to get the latest software for them.

(we do not include any software, only drivers for download - for this item)

Thanks

Nicely done , oh ya, how low will he go. Looks like we need to start a contest on this one and $85 is the price to beat. Sure beats paying $180 with shipping from Poland.

No offense, but this is a pretty naive defense. Did you expect them to say "No, ours are crappy compared to theirs!"?

Look, this is the last I'm going to post on this. I've got three cables. They all LOOK the same because they all have the same plastic enclosure. The guts are definitely different in two of them despite the fact that they look identical on the outside. The third has a clear plastic enclosure, but looks like it was molded on the same equipment, just with clear plastic. The boards in two appear the same but one works and the other works sporadically (probably cold solder joint or something). The third has a completely different board layout. I'll post photos with the enclosure removed if anyone wants to see the guts.

For what it's worth, I work with microcontrollers for a living. We sell software that works on process control modules for process automation (MODBUS TCP for refineries and such). We get our modules from Indonesia. We get them in shipments in the 100's. We then submit them to a rigorous QC process and probably end up sending back 2-3% because of defects, and this is a company we partner with that tests them themselves before shipping them.

I really Hope you guys will have no problems with your cables. Maybe I'm just unlucky, but for my money, I trust the QC of DoIt, etc. more than some schmo on Ebay.

Could you go into a bit more detail about the three different ones you have? Who'd you get them from, what chips are they using and so on?

I understand exactly where you're coming from - but I didn't ask him 'Are your cables any good?' I asked him if his cables were the same as, or same mfg. as the other (2) companies.

It turns out that one-stop-electronics IS their actual home site - if you click on ebay auction 'go to store' it goes to that website.

I worked for years for a company that made the ceramic PGA's for computer processor chips, we also did the die attach/wire bonding/lid attach/heat sink attach in order to test our product with the actual devices that would be used in production. The wafers we received with the devices (from a very reputable company in San Diego) were always tested at our facility, on automated equipment to ensure that once diced, the chips we were using would be fully functional. Even though they had a rigorous inspection process of their own, and marked all bad devices on the wafer - we sometime still found defective devices that were not caught.

Since I personally only ever plan to do very simple coding of just a couple items - I don't mind taking the risk that an $85 cable may not work. If it fails I'll either return it or give it to a contact that can check it out and fix for free.

Defective electronic items can be found from ANY manufacturer regardless of their name/rep. Recently a fairly expensive Sony flat screen I bought was defective after only 4 days of use - it was returned and exchanged for a new one. You would think that a company such as Sony would never let a pre-tested product go out to the consumer with a possible defect - but shit happens.

For that matter - the cables from Poland that were going for $150, or the German cables could arrive and be defective also - there is no guarantee that because they weren't from eBay, and were more $$ that they are all good...

BTW, I just offered $85 for the eBay cable and it was accepted - so anyone else that wants to go with one from there should get the same deal...

You've already gone way above & beyond with the DIY that compiled a ton of info from different sources into one neat pkg to review

Perhaps we could all chime in & compile a list of the different modules that will come up available that contain the most common items we are coding and exactly where the specific items are located within the modules?
