Is car running OK? Then it most likely is OK to run it until you can get it checked.

I just ordered a C310 code reader from Amazon, suggest you do the same.

Sorry to hijack the thread but ...

What's the difference between a C310 code reader vs. a cheaper bluetooth code reader that interfaces with your cell phone with Torque Pro?

My old code reader was working OK on the old stuff, have an 03 Tracker, but the BMW's baffle it. Other threads have mentioned the C110 and the upgrade to the C310. It was about 70 bucks US, when I get some free time I'll plug it in and see what happens.

Does it do the same thing as a Peake code scanner? Which one is better?
