Hello from Renfrewshire Scotland

Post by Sideways Steve » Wed Nov 21, 2018 3:38 pm

Just a quick hello post, new to this forum and to the Z4 but certainly not new to car forums or BMW's.

Just recently bought a nice 2.5 E85 Z4 as a change from my JCW Mini and to compliment my E91. I'm located in Bishopton and use my Z4 or the E91 daily so anyone from the area will likely see me running about the place! :driving:

Not actually joined a forum for quite some time but this one seems to have some good information and I'm hoping to get some advice about a few coding issues I have been having as well as hopefully being able to help others in return with bits and pieces! :thumbsup:

For info I have access to the full suite of BMW coding/diagnostic tools for most models up to 2018 including the latest release of ISTA-D & ISTA-P however I only have a D+KCan OBD Cable so cant help out with MOST system stuff.

Welcome Steve. I am sure I know your nome-d-plume 'Sideways Steve' from another Forum, Alpina perhaps?
