ENET Cable Sources

I found another source for ENET Cables, One-Stop Electronics:

One-Stop Electronics (China)
http://www.one-stop-electronics.com/...&product_id=20

Price: $29.00
Paypal details:
info@one-stop-electronics.com

The price is very good, and it looks like a quality build. While I do not know anyone who has purchased their ENET Interface Cable, several E-Series owners have spoken very highly about their BMW INPA / Ediabas K+DCAN USB Interface cable, so I would expect the quality to be the same.

Of course ATOMIS (Codecard) remains an option as well:

ATOMIS (aka Codecard) in Lithuania:
http://www.codecard.lt/electronics/t.../prod_651.html

Price:29.00 ($35.00)

And for the DIYer's:

A senior member of the BMW community asked me the following question:

I read that you have ENET cables in stock. Can you tell me more about them? *Where are they from, how do they perform, etc?

The answer to him in few words was: though I started helping my friends by assembling cables myself, but the word spread like a fire and so many started demanding cables from me. Now these cables are assembled in my supervision but tested 100% by me on Fxx Series. Surprisingly 100s of cables have been shipped across US, Canada and Europe. Many of them responded back thanking me personally and I have seen many of them very active on forum as successful coders.

This gives me an immense pleasure to serve the BMW community.

Best Wishes.

(My sales pitch: One and only one, Shop with April1)

Bought a cable from One stop electronics and it works perfectly. Well made and high quality. I would recommend the 1.8m one as it is $10 cheaper than the 5m one linked in the first post.

The first cable above from One-Stop Electronics is a 5 meter ENET Cable. They also offer this shorter 1.8 meter version (6 Feet) for $19 instead of $29.

for the DIYers I have an extra 511ohm .6W resistor that I ordered when I built my cable. I got 2 in case one happened to be bad. I'd be happy to send this one to someone looking for one for their cable. just PM me.

No, not for Fxx Chassis. You must have Ethernet x OBDII. Sorry.

Yep, just wanted to avoid the additional point of failure. Just ordered the cable from Shawn's side business in Europe...

I hear ya. Often when I am coding, rather than sitting in the Driver's seat, I am wishing I could instead stand 16.5 feet away from my car.

How about using an Ethernet extension cable? Then you could code from 100 meters away!

Some do, or they use Power Line Ethernet Adapters, and then you can code from the luxury of your couch.
