    CAN Cable for Coding Injectors?

    I am replacing a bad injector and obviously need to code the new one, but I wanted to know which CAN cable is best for this procedure and where is the best place to buy one?

    If anyone local (MD, VA, DC) has one I can borrow I would definitely hook you up with beer or Chipotle (two best things in life).

    Let me know

    Any OBD To USB K+DCAN cable will work. EBay has a lot of cheap ones but if you don't want to do trial and error the "One stop electronics" one is popular for the E9x community.

    Thanks rooringhusky, I've looked on Ebay and there are a lot of cables like the one you've listed but much cheaper. Has there been horror stories of fraudulent cables being bought?

    Not horror stories, some just dont work. I bought the one-stop-electronics cable maybe 3 years ago, never had a problem.

    @Tzu read my mind. I have the One stop electronics one as well and have no issues with the 50-60 cars I have worked on with coding, Transmission flashes, diagnostics etc. I don't have experience with other cables but I know they can be had much cheaper if your willing to deal with the hassle. If you look on e90 there are plenty of other people who have experimented with results all over the place - some good some bad.
