Which diagnostics for a beginner

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I currently have a Foxwell NT414 OBD Scanner however am looking to buy a better system so I can do basic coding for new batteries etc on my F11

I’m after some advice on which one to get, that is easy to use and understand, and what equipment I would need to use it.

Regards 

Rick

Hi,

You can use either the K+Dcan or E-net cable of your FXX,  

There both available on ebay for pennies now, my E-Net are £24.99 delivered ebay you can get probable half that price, unfortunatly I had to pay import duty and vat on my where as most ebay ones dont,

make sure if you go ebay/amazon route that they supply the software with the cable.

either way do some reading on ista and e-sys before you start playing with your car as a beginner.

all software is windows based and will run on 7 8 and 10.

Hi, sorry for late reply, ista will be more usefully to you, e-sys is for coding and ista is for diagnostics.

both available with a quick google search, or you can purchase on ebay cheap enough, again make sure seller has support.
