For the E46 always a FTDI FT232RL based cable for £3-£4 from china and bridge pins 7&8
INPA of a forum somewhere
A suitable laptop is £40ish off eBay Dell C400 or C610
Or pay £25 ish for the same stuff off eBay
That or get generic codes from a Bluetooth or wifi OBDII and app on your phone
Thanks for your suggestions but was considering a plug and play scanner but one that could do a bit more than give generic codes.
Yep, but ultimately a laptop and software sweet gives a lot more than anything else for the price
