  1. if you want to charge the battery using a ctek mx5 charger it is best to do it while battery is still connected to the car, you have to connect the positive wire of the charger to the jump start positive terminal in the engine bay compartment and the negative wire of the charger to the negative post in the engine bay compartment which is connected to chassis. the post and picture from 535i Andrew above shows you clearly where to connect

    Diagnostic software

    the Carly generation 2 Wi-Fi adaptor for iPhone will cost you £57.30 from amazon delivered and the Carly lite app is free from the app store-this is a basic app which only allows one free diagnostic report is a taster to buy the buy the carly pro app. if you get the Carly pro app which can do coding from app store it will cost £44 so the total investment is around £100 if you want diagnostics and coding from Carly. I suppose if you use it one or twice it would pay for itself. ps-the vcds is a fantastic tool for vw,audi,skoda and seat.!
