Here ya go - http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...hlight=adapter

My 98 740iL has the round plug, but the 01 X5 doesn't, so I decided to make this instead. I keep both of my readers, their manuals and the adapter in a large ziploc bag. PM me your address and I'll send you the SRS reader.

Ditto the reco for the FCX. Mine has paid for itself many times over. Good luck on the repairs Alain.

The Peake tools usually go into the round port under the hood, but if your car doesn't have one (like my 01 X5), you'll need what's called an AB03 adapter that converts the round plug to an OBDII type of plug. I just made my own since I didn't want to spend like $80 for a cable. If you change your mind, let me know.
M5James, one last question, are you suggesting to get the FCX peake tool instead of the SRS one? Looking at the description of the FCX it talks about checking/resetting check engine and service engine lights but does not talk about the SRS light. Does the FCX enable also to check and clear the SRS light?

The FCX only does engine codes, but you'll use it 10x more than you would the SRS tool. Unless you want to buy them both, I'm suggesting you only buy the FCX and then take me up on my original offer of mailing you the SRS since you'll probably only use it once anyways. SRS issues are so rare that I hardly even use it myself, so I was just tryin to help you save a few bucks.

I'll go clean it out, sorry. No rush Alain, I'm not using it anytime soon.
