i bought the pc version of the autoenginuity obdii reader a few weeks ago and sadly it seems my car is one of the oddball cars that doesn't work with the unit. The developer has been great about supporting/troubleshooting the unit and has offered me a refund. I'm just waiting for him to test another 318 local to him before i go ahead and return it (or sell it to someone else if interested).
I'm wondering if anyone with a obdii would be interested in plugging it in and giving it a whirl. i'd still like to see one working. basically you can come over and we'll go for a ride ( monday to friday evenings only) as i already have it setup on my laptop.
go to www.autoenginuity.com
for screeshots or compatibility info. ideally someone with another 1999 318 would be great.
i'll probably hang onto it for another week or so and if nobody else wants it i'll ship it back.
