X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

OBD scanner

Hi everyone, thank you for add.

I have a 2012 X6M and I'm looking for a good OBD adapter and app combination. everything I tried so far will only support 2014 and up. I prefer something with no monthly fees like Carly is charging.

I want to use the app for coding and clearing codes.

As far as I know, OBDII is OBDII. Any scanner touted as OBDII should work.

I bought this off've Amazon and it works on my FJ. I'll plug it into my MB this morning and report back if it works on that vehicle as well, but I have no reason to believe it won't.

The Bluetooth dongles work really well if you use android. The Apple version is WiFi. But then you use an app on your phone to connect. I use Torque. It gives me WAY more information than my old OBDII scanner. Nothing takes the place of ISTA/D (I have all three), but for quick scans and resets I highly recommend the dongles. Search for ELM327 or Droid OBD.

Even if you have a stand-alone scanner. Keep it in the car. Want to impress a chick at the bar? Tell her you can read her CEL and reset it in the parking lot in 5 minutes or less.
