For those who have the Peake scan tool...does it do more than the ol' stomp test codes and the 2-pins for resetting?

It sure does. I have two 328's and I use it at least every couple of weeks. BMW's are notorious for the check engine lights coming on. This little gadget resets the check engine light and also points in a direction for troubleshooting. The code book will actually tell you which valve,switch,sensor etc to look at first. I would highly recommend it. It has saved alot of troubleshooting time and a buck or two from the local beemer stealer....

The Peake tool is very useful, especially if you have an OBDII car. The short answer to your question, however, is no. The Peake tool does the same things as the more rudimentary procedures you mentioned. The tool does so in an orderly fashion, and -- more importantly -- can read OBDII, with which "stomping" doesn't work.

I have never had the CEL come on. I've driven my car for 10,000 miles and currently sit at 178,000. I guess I own a notoriously uncommon BMW.
