DCAN cable or ENET cable, which one you need?

This is an article about guide for buying DCAN cable and ENET cable, for there is some wrong knowing about them in forums I go to.

K+DCAN cable ENET cable
Diagram:  K+DCAN cable  ENET cable
Price: €15.99 €11.00
Software: INPA/Ediabas E-sys
Supported vehicles: DCAN allows full diagnose of BMW from 1998 to 2008. ENET is for the F series cars.

The ENET cable is used for coding (and maybe programming too) on the F series cars, and you’ll be able to change any setting you like, even do strange custom stuff and activate features meant for other parts of the world.NCS expert does coding, WinKFP does programming, and both of these will do what YOU say, not what BMW wants, so you can do things like reprogram engine and autobox ECUs to a different model spec that might be sportier for example.
ISTA/P wouldn’t allow something like that.
