All BMW's built since 1988 have a diagnostic connector. These connectors have have 20 pins and a small pie shapped hole in the middle, and they are located under the hood.
Starting in 1996 BMW started adding OBD2 connectors for North American market cars. These OBD2 connectors only have access to engine control module. For use with Bavarian technic you must use the Round connector under the hood.
Starting in July of 2000 BMW removed the round diagnostic connectors and adding all diagnostic capabilites to the OBD2 connector on most models.
E38 7 Series, and Z3 models used the round diagnostic connector beyond 07/2000.
If your car has the round diagnostic connector under the hood, you should use the round adapter and not the 16 pin OBD2 connector
