cable for remote coding ?

Hi everyone,
I'd like Mike from www.BPMSport.com to do the remote coding on my m3.
But the cable itself costs $xxx
I was just wondering if anyone has done codings with Mike already and has the cable in GTA area?

Thanks!

Honestly, the cable is a good piece to own. It will allow you to run diagnostics on the car as well as provide for possible future coding needs you might have.

Is this the only option in GTA?
No locals can code our cars?
My friend got his 335 coded, I'll post a link of his # when I get it or someone please link any coders in GTA since my friend is a bit slow.

Thanks

+1 on keeping the cable.

Mike does coding remotely very well. We managed it with a 9 hour time zone difference.

I think it just a matter of saving money. Why else would someone want to borrow a cable from someone else each and every time they need mike to do a remote login (update)
