Any good diagnostic tools available?

Post by Da_Hose » Sat May 19, 2018 9:15 pm

Hey everyone,

I have been working on my 6er for many years, and always and have been wondering if there is a genuinely good diagnostic tool out there for us E24 owners to use.

I also have a 2006 530XI in the household, which is pretty much a rolling computer. To work on that car, I built an INPA WinKFP based computer, and it is awesome to have. Other than good old multimeters, and such, has anyone found diagnostic tools worth having? I looked at the Peake R5-FCX tool sold all over the place, but I can't find a single example of someone using that tool to do work on a 6er. Has anyone on the forum tried using the Peake tool, and able to report what kind of results you got? Is it worth the money?
