BMW ENET Cable Review

BMW Esys ENET review: (10.2017 updated)

Worked great.

I purchased a cable previously from a different reputed vendor and after spending 2 weeks trying to get it to work it did not. I decided to pony up for another cable and this one worked perfectly. I am able to diagnose and program the BMW F10 without issues, connected straight away. This cable does the job.

Worked great.

Used this with bmw istad and reset battery parameters, switched to AGM battery from Lead acid in the ecu. Showed all trouble codes. Excellent little interface cable.

works good

now able to connect to my BMW and code

Five Stars

worked great with E-Sys on my 2014 F10

Five Stars

Works fine with F54 Mini Clubman.

Worked a few times then died

Worked a few times with ISTA then it wouldn’t recognize. I purchased another ENET cable from another vendor (usnewplaza) and it works perfectly. I tried this cable with a few other software programs and it didn’t work. Return window closed so I wasted $20. Buyer beware!

Worked great for my BMW

This cable has great build quality, I especially appreciate the little LED that turns on when you plug in the OBD end so you know you have a connection with the car. The cable worked perfectly for coding my 2015 3 series BMW. Highly recommended.

Very happy with the quality of this cable

Very happy with the quality of this cable. I have seen some of the “cheaper” cables friends have bought, but the construction of this one was very nice! I have coded/flashed many cars without issue.

Worked for coding my 2015 F30 335i

Worked perfectly with the latest version of the Enet software. Plug is a little difficult to remove from the OBD connector once plugged in, but I believe this is per design. The RJ-45 connector on the other end is protected against snags.

Good quality. Worked perfectly.

This is a quality cable than looks and works well. Rather than buying a bluetooth audio adapter i spend similar money on this and coded my BMW to enable the feature. I’m looking forward to performing other tweaks.

Great quality and fast shipping

Cable worked perfectly with 2012 BMW 328i (F30). Great quality and fast shipping!

Worked great. I have coded my car about 10 times …

Worked great. I have coded my car about 10 times now and the cable has never failed me.

BMW programming/coding cable

This cable was exactly what was pictured and described online. I haven’t coded anything yet because I don’t have the software in which I’m still currently researching.

Five Stars

Works great for coding my BMW 335i

No flaws here

Not a hard thing to make yourself, but you can mess it up…which could really screw you up….

Product came with the pinkish/red cable, well made, no loose connections or anything to take away from the look. Cable would be long enough for me to be plugged in and use my laptop in the trunk area if need be. Connector is solid and tight on my f25 x3. Used with a gigabit switch and a 100ft cat6 cable so I can do the coding from the house instead of sitting in the car; worked fine.

A must have for coding capabilities

I like this ENET cable. It had a good build quality. The company makes sure you get a link to the right software. All in all, its the type of cable I would love to review for. Its totally compatible with my f30 BMW 3 series, the connection works like a charm. I would highly suggest you to read the overall instructions though before you get started.

In summary,

It depends on your purpose (diagnostic or coding or programming) and model (Exx or Fxx or others).

For Coding, you need different Tools, NCS Expert / SP-Daten for E-Series and E-Sys / PSdZData for F-Series.

All Diagnosis and Coding can be done with cheap DCAN Cable for E-Series and cheap ENET Cable for F-Series.

For Programming (Flashing ECU’s with new Firmware), then you need ISTA/P for for both E-Series and F-Series cars, or you can use WinKFP for E-Series and E-Sys for F-Series. For E-Series Programming, you will need an ICOM, but for F-Series Programming, you can use ENET Cable.
