I could pull some logs as well then and send to the AA guys if they would like to have a look at them.

I'm not having any problems or concerns so far just personal intrest in the engine data.
You can't data log with Simon3 - fairly sure he is using TorquePro App + OBD Adapter (which is what I use)

I know you can buy cheap $12 adapters off fleabay - but I don't trust coding my car with those (when using Bimmercode) + the one I have has VERY fast communication which is important for data logging multiple parameters at same time

I use:
ScanTool 427201 OBDLink LX Bluetooth: Professional OBD-II Scan Tool for Android & Windows - got it directly from mfg. & it was cheaper than on Amazon, immediate connect & never a dropped connection...

  • Up to 4x faster than the closest competitor - LX accelerates apps and software up to 400%. The ultra-fast response times let you enjoy accurate, detailed graphs and smooth, realistic virtual gauges.
  • BatterySaver technology - LX's innovative sleep function lets you leave it plugged in without danger of draining your car's battery.
  • Hacker-proof - utilises a unique multi-layered link security mechanism, eliminating the risk of unauthorized access.
  • Read & clear check engine light - Check diagnostic codes yourself and make informed repair decisions.
  • Works on smart phones, tablets, & PC's - Turn your Android or Window smart phone, tablet, laptop, or PC into a sophisticated diagnostics tool and performance monitor. (Note: Not compatible with Apple iOS products).
  • Works on a wider range of vehicles - OBDLink's advanced algorithm enables LX to connect to more OBD-II compliant makes & models than any other scan tool. It also supports EOBD, JOBD, and all other international variants of OBD-II.
  • Free Android app & Windows diagnostics software - Includes's exclusive OBDLink app for Android and OBDwiz licence for Windows.
  • Superior compatibility - works with more 3rd party apps & software than any other adapter.
  • Consider purchasing OBDLink MX if you need access to the proprietary Ford & GM vehicle networks (SW-CAN & MS-CAN) in addition to standard OBD-II protocols.
