I am looking for minor things to do to my car, i thought of the obc as one. I was wondering if i bought a new one, the one with 18 buttons i believe, would that work in my 318is? The one i have right now doesnt tell me anything besides the temp and the time... i think thats kinda pointless since my headunit does the same lol. I want the one that tells u about problems in your car, like tail light is out and the such. So is it an easy conversion or even possible?


Also for those interested tell me what you think of my car now







These are old pictures



This is the picture where i put my kit on to see what it looks like


After a while i took it off until i have the money for the paintjob and what not.

These are what everyone should drive

my friends audi, my friend's mom's mercedes, my friends lexus, and my bmw

YOu really don't want to do it unless you are an electronics wiz. The write up that I have seen looks crazy and the guy says that it is very hard. I asked my Friend/Mechanic about it and he said it isn't worth it because of the amount of time it takes for you to do it unless you are a wiz.
