I agree 100%. Bought a 1995 MB SL500 in Las Vegas and drove it back to Canada with no problems and passed the safety inspection with flying colours.
Had many BMW and forever buying parts and fixing the car.

Did you see that video on msn of the 1M getting stolen from outside some poor guys house by a gang last week.

3 mins to take it they put the window in and recoded a blank key through the obd port! shocking

the bloke who it did belong to has found out since that bmw are aware of the problem and may even move the obd ports!!!! thats even more shocking in my book
