Really? Pretty sure my E34 had obd ?

Some people call it 'OBD 1' but it isn't. If, as I do, you have an interface which will do both, you have to change the software to read interface as either ADS or STD:OBD. And you have to throw a switch! :lol:

 

ADS works on the E34. OBD works on the E39, E46, E60 (to about 2005) etc

I could be mistaken on this whole OBD thing as I was never quite certain, but from memory the reader did work with and adapter. May have been on another car, but pretty sure it did work on mine.

 

I remember that the same scanner definitely didn't work for the E30 though! :lol:

 

It's just certain things on my 540i/T are different to the rest of the E34's. For example factory built Alusil block. B) 

EWS II system and lots of other things that earlier E34's didn't come with....

Thanks again for all the replies I’ll keep looking into it as I have also read on the turner Motorsport website that they have one that works with an adapter cord 

Thanks
