Fast International Shipping with DHL

30 days adaptor return policy

Excellent customer support

Lifetime  warranty in the hardware


All vehicles since 2004, and some vehicles from 1994 and later are equipped with an OBD2 port.

The port location can vary depending on the car model. Finding it can be a bit difficult sometimes! The OBD port location in a BMW 3 should be within reach of the driver.

Cars are increasingly dependent on their software and have up to 80 built-in ECUs. Therefore, to find problems and errors in modern cars it is necessary to own a diagnostics tool. The Carly App and OBD adapter allows BMW 3 owners to diagnose their car in a few steps, for instance. And without a trip to the workshop!

Additionally, Carly supports multiple other functions for the BMW 3 E46. However, the Carly functions available for specific cars can vary due to differences in the built-in ECUs and the car’s software. Don’t miss out on all the powerful features that you can access for your BMW 3 E46! Check here all the possibilities that you have for coding, diagnosing, and saving money on your car!

Access your BMW 3 E46 functions in two steps!

To access your BMW’s functions, there are two simple steps to follow:

Firstly, you need to get the Carly OBD scanner and plug it into your car’s OBD port. Lastly, all that is left is to download the Carly App and get a subscription for your car model. (If you also have another car from a different brand, we recommend you getting the “all brands subscription”. This way you’ll be able to access the functions for all of your cars using the same Carly OBD reader!) You can get the Carly OBD reader and Carly app here!

Now that you have your OBD reader and Carly App you can start making you car yours!
