It's what I used on the 135 as well and it was OK.

Any suggestions appreciated!
Sorry for the late reply. Could be the cable, we used this method on my friend's 335i with a Radioshack cable and it didn't work. He ordered a cable from V1's website and we tried that, and it worked perfectly. No method changes, just the cable changed. Kind of odd but c'est la vie?
