Can we start out with the amazon link for the proper OBDII to Ethernet cable that is required?

unless you want to build your own cable here are two pre-made options for the OBDII to ethernet cable

From Scott Lawson over on the facebook page:

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LMB0BDW/ref ... aba2c9cbda

And here on Ebay (where I ordered):

I see that some of the items you guys linked to include software - I would NOT use the software they've included. Instead see this thread: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showth ... 8&page=143

I've no clue where to start with coding but I'm desperate to upgrade the bluetooth to enhanced bluetooth. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Well it will weeks before the cable shows up plus I think I will wait until I get the 07-505 update before I start messing with things.
