Mein Auto: 2005 BMW X3 3.0i
BMW Scanner and Writer

Hey guys I recently bought an 05 X3 and have notice some of the things that the car should do like locking doors and the such really don't work. Well I did my time looking online for a solution and come to a conclusion that it might just be best getting a scanner and a reader. The only this is that I found one on called BMW Scanner 1.4.0 Programmer V1.4 Never Locking. I just want to know if anyone has bought one and how is it. Like I said I just want it to read and write and this might be the best alternative to take the car to the dealership and paying $$$ just to get the car to auto lock while I drive off. Thanks

Never heard of that tool, but Bavarian Technic is probably the best and most well known "legit" scanner/programmer out there..

For 30 dollars, it's worth the gamble.... Get the scanner and try it
