Mein Auto: 95 525i
95 e34 525i computer module help?

took my 525i in to bmw for tune up and they told me my car is not being reconized when connected. Mechanic said its one of the onboard computers that could be failing . Now my question is what would be smart to do on going about this. Id rather order the parts on my own other then having bmw do it and raping my wallet. if any help that wpuld be great. Thank you

If you have no other issues i would not worry much.
Most places do not even hook up OBD 1 cars, is it possible they did not realize it was OBD 1 and not 2?
I have a shop try to hook up mine when i went for an inspection, but their computers only support OBD2 and it gave them the error, could not connect/no signal from vehicle.
