If you've got the 16 pin socket on your car,then it will(in theory) work....BUT.....proffesional diagnostic tools cost thousands of pounds,so I doubt very much that this one will tell you an awful lot.(I could be wrong as I've never used the arrangement advertised).

One other thing to bear in mind is that Renault ECU 's are particularly sensitive,and if you manage to connect with one and you don't disconnect from it in a particular way,serious ECU damage can be caused.

If you decide to buy the system,let us know how you get on.I am intrigued to know how usefull it is.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
