BMW ENET (OBDII to Ethernet) cable?
BMW ICOM A2 emulator?

Some forum discussions about the BMW ICOM and ENET cable:

Q: Why is an ICOM A2 required insead of just using the OBDII to Ethernet cable?
A1: ICOM A2 works more stable than enet. For example: When you update ZGW via ENET, sometimes car stays on transport mode. But via ICOM it always come back to normal mode.
A2: A more technical reason is lack of DHCP server when connecting with ENET. This does not affect connection over DCAN, which is supported by ICOM, but cannot be accomplished with ENET cable.

How to renew Benz EIS and replace Benz ESL with VVDI MB BGA Tool ?

In general, Benz electric steering locks (ESL) are used with EIS W204/ W207/ W212. ESL is damaged in high frequency. In this case, there are two possible reasons and solutions:
