so could we reprogram our cars with it? e.g. turn off daytime running lights, or turn on the alarm?

With the correct firmware you could...

Man that thing is so old and so slow its not even worth getting. It can probably be only used on BMW up to 2000 or 2001.

I took some pics. of it when I was in BMW STEP. Here are some info. Mind you these two diagnostic computers are extinct!

Actually, you are more than right: it is not probably, it does say that is for models up to 2001.

yeah, but the e46 2001 M3 runs the same code as the 2005 M3.

Why would you spend $3000 on that thing?

code = firmware

How it can have the same code if items like Assist, Bluetooth, some wireless telephones (like the CPT9000) and now the M Track Mode for the DSC were not available in the 2001 M3? Maybe even some adjustment in emissions were made in ignition firmware for 2002 or 2003 for example... my point is that you have to have the correct firmware for specific model, equipment and year, it is not a generic firmware that works in any car for any year.

Buying this computer can help some independent tech working on BMW's up to 2001. After that he/she will need to get the software updates from BMW to keep up with the models and improvements. And I do not think that those upgrades are cheap...
