Coding hardware/software

Hi All,

New to this forum. I've used VAG/COM for my Audi S4 but now an acquiring a new to me i3 and want to tweak the usual settings.

I have a MacBook Pro which does not have an ethernet port. Are the Bluetooth or Wifi OBD2 dongles an option? If so, any that are "preferred"? Recommendations on software would be appreciated as well!

Regards,
Craig

You will only be able to use a USB x LAN Adapter, and a ENET Cable. Software on Mac will need to run in a Windows Virtual Machine.
