About this app

BimmerLink is the direct link to your BMW or MINI. Using one of the supported OBD adapters you can read trouble codes or display sensor values in realtime, check the current state of the DPF in your car or register a new battery after replacement. BimmerLink even allows you to remotely control the exhaust flap or mute the Active Sound Design in your car.

Diagnose your car as would otherwise be possible only by your Service Partner. In contrast to generic OBD apps that read emission related errors only, BimmerLink allows you to read and clear trouble codes from ALL control units in your car.

BimmerLink provides a big selection of values like oil temperature or boost pressure. Keep an eye on all the important parameters of your car with a personalized dashboard.

Take control over the exhaust flap in your car and decide yourself, whether it should be closed or open.

If you do not like the artificial engine sound generated in your car, just mute the Active Sound Design with BimmerLink.

The “Sound Tuning” option allows you to disable the “exhaust burble“ in cars equipped with the S55 engine (M2 Competition, M3, M4).

BimmerLink allows you to check the current state of the diesel particulate filter in your car. Find out when the last regeneration took place or how much ash has accumulated in the filter and start a regeneration with the touch of a button.

If you want to replace the battery in your car, this has to be registered in the engine control unit and BimmerLink allows you to do this yourself now.

BimmerLink allows you to activate the service mode for the electromechanical parking brake.

Reset the service display in your car after carrying out maintenance work like a brake pad replacement or an engine oil change.

Reset the short circuit lock for lamp outputs.

To use the app one of the supported Bluetooth or WiFi OBD adapters or cables is required. For more information please visit

The app works good until you need to export your log file. For $50 you get a painfully difficult experience of exporting files. If it actually worked right I could email the file to myself and download it then do with it whatever I please. Instead of having that convenience you press send and nothing happens. The only way I can make it work is if I send the email while sitting in front of a computer with my email up and the same time so I can watch it go through. It's so counterintuitive.

I purchased the full version and the ability to read error codes and use of other tools are invaluable. I recently had a minor bug with my app where Sound Tuning would not reactivate. I reached out to the bimmerlink support team and Stephan was very prompt with his response and resolved the issue quickly. The very same day, he contacted me and pushed out a new version of the app fixing the bug I had with the app. I highly recommend this app and their amazing support team.

Hi, this has been fixed with BimmerLink version 2.3.2. Thank you for the feedback.

The clearing codes thing is kind of cool, but I got this app mostly for data logging. The data logging on this app seems kind of useless because it only logs at certain intervals, and those intervals are too far apart to be of any use. It can completely miss pulls that are 0-70mph+. If there was a way to set the interval of how often it captures data instead of once every like 10-15 seconds, that would be awesome. Not sure if that's an app limitation or OBD2 limitation.
