F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

Mein Auto: 2020 M240i convertible
Scan tools for F22/F23?

Wondering what to get for a new 2020 M240i convertible (8/7/2019 build).

I have a Schwaben (Foxwell NT510 type) tool that works well for my 2009 MINI R55
and is supposed to work with BMW and Rolls as well, but even with the latest updates,
it freezes on VIN search and has limited functionality otherwise with the 2020 M240i.
Foxwell says the NT530 works on F-chassis BMWs on their website, but when I gave them
the year and model and asked specifically by email, they said no, not at this time.

Looking at the Autel MX808 or MK808 or similar, both of which are a little pricier, or
maybe the Autophix 7910, which is cheaper but probably a bit more limited.

Anybody have any feedback on these options, or other suggestions for a hand-held
F-chassis compatible scan tool?

More research is pointing me
towards the Launch CRP429C or
Launch X431 Pros Mini.

Anyone have any thoughts of any of
those mentioned so far?

Got the Launch X431 Pros Mini tool.
Takes a while to load up the programs and
updates when first setting it up and
configuring, but after that it reads my car
and scans quick enough. Gave me some
clues on why the convertible top will not
open (although will let the dealer fix that
as the car is brand new).
Looks like it can do a lot besides code
reading, too.
