blue dragon will become famous soon enough
You would flash the main modules like
EGS - tranny
DDE/DME - Main ECU with DCAN cable?

I know I would not
Chinese cloned ICOM A + B + C is less than $300. One of those modules will cost you more than that if it gets bricked

Your ICOM A is a DCAN bus OBD plug with some other fancy connectors and a FAN etc but this is still a DCAN OBD plug.

500, 300, let's not argue, you got shipping, import duty, the 500 figure is an average. You may pay less, you may pay more.
At the end of the day this is still a chinese clone, some are good, some are bad. Myself I bought an OEM one back in 2012 which I still use today. Cost me 3000.

Yes I flash cars for a living, I flash airbag modules over OBD only too, no need to get the ICOM and fibre optic interface out for this. The ICOM would not use the fibre optic to flash this anyway.

As I said, not a single failure ever using my high quality OBD plug.
Important steps before flashing are to run a diag first, make sure there is no MOST and CAN bus errors, take out CD/DVD etc.

Could anyone post a K+DCAN usb cable with switch on ebay or amazon that's verified to work with 2008+ cars? Specically a 2009 X5 xdrive30i

I just need to get my battery coded without going the Carly route.

I see lots on ebay but most seem to be for 2008 and prior....

Thanks!

BMW Scanner v1.4.0 works on the E70? I thought you needed v2.1.0?
