BMW's tend to need a special OBD reader. I have to use a completely different system for my BMW than any other car. Even if a generic reader does work (and some do) you only get the absolute basic diagnostic information back, usually not enough to diagnose a fault.

Either you need a BMW compatible USB to OBD2 lead and some software on a laptop (ideally ISTA) or a small scanner like a C110 or C310 (have a look on ebay). Alternatively these days a lot of people use a Bluetooth OBD2 plug and an app on their phone. Carly used to be the most popular but they've really started charging for it now.
