Exclamation Coding NEWB - Which cable

Hi, I am new to this forum and recently bought myself a 2007 335i e92 coupe, a couple of days ago I got the dreaded emmission light. So now I need a diagnostic cable & software to identify the part at fault (if any). I know there are lots of other posts on this forum which I have been reading but they all seem to be to technical for me .

I am considering buying this.. I am from the UK (don't know if that will make any difference) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-BMW-IN...item231c7ad4b6

I am also interested in the coding part as I will probably look into retrofitting an Ipod interface as I only have AUX input at the moment which is dreadfull, so will this cable be able to facilitate this?

Thanks in advance... and before you say do a search, I have and I am still confused I just need a kick in the right direction

That cable claims to have the right specs for your car, but beware of the cheapies. They don't always have the best quality control. Most people have had good luck with the One-Stop cable:

Pay a little more to be sure you've got a decent cable.

Hey guys, was trying to order this cable, but the link is dead. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.
