Question MHD Cables???

Hi guys, I'm a super noob tuner. I just ordered the Nexus 7 (2nd Gen) to have in my car and to use for MHD tunes. I realize I need two different cables...can you guys school me real quick?

I'm about to order the bimmergeek Pro-K+dcan cable and it has and option for OTG adapters: 1. No thanks! 2. Micro-USB 3. USB-C

My question: Which option to choose for the Nexus 7?

Also, MHD says I need a USB OTG cable. Which one will work for the Nexus 7 (2nd Gen) tablet with a bimmergeek Pro-K+dcan cable?

Excuse my noob-ness! Thanks in advance for any helpful advice! Please be specific!

um, yeah, A (1)Bimmergeeks KDCan cable with a (2) micro usb OTG cable add on.

Does that do it? Thats what did it for mine. I checked the specs for the Nexus if you are unsure.

What about this USB OTG cable that MHD says we need?

Thanks!
Do I need any bolt on modifications to run a stage 1 (or whatever the weakest tune is)?

I played mild and went with stage 2. I really like it.
I don't race car so I didn't want the snot of stage 3.
I usually do D which is smooth. Sport raises the shift points for extra punch.

I'm content, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

Oh okay, very nice!
I have no modifications whatsoever on my car. When is it really necessary to start adding bolt ons with the MHD tunes? I read somewhere that even stage 1 requires an intercooler.

I just ordered BMS DCI. I'm looking for a nice intercooler that has a proven track record for performance, and that doesn't require extensive cutting (hard find for the e60..).

Stage 1+FMIC, yes it is recommended but it looks like some run it with a stock set up.

This PSP intercooler looks to be alright for a few more dollars than the VRSF. Solid attach points with carving never the less.

I wouldnt spend above 600 on an intercooler and would probably do the VRSF anyway.
I know I could tinker it into place.
No real drive to break the sound barrier from this dude. Stage 1 gets me there with no problems,,,,,so far

So the regular ol' "Stage 1" (without the "+") doesn't have any recommended mods?

Hahaha! Do you know of a good one? I've heard they are practically ineffective most of the time
