GS-911 Price Drop

I just checked the price on Amazon for the GS-911 and it was 279.00 down from 400.oo these past years. I was planing to support a BMW Rider supplier like Ted's but this price is very good. If any one has been holding out to get one this might be a good time even with Christmas just around the corner. I hope the other fourms hear about it.

Is a GS911 necessary for pre-2017 models? I don’t see one listed.

That depends on what or how your going to use it. I have a 2012 RT. Great tool. I'm sure they have one to buy. If not go directly to their web site. You want the yellow one called GS911 blue or usb model.

I've been using the Wi-Fi version (Red) with my 07 since it came out.
Although I never use the Wi-Fi. I always connect to my Surface Pro tablet with the USB cable.

YMMV

If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

So do I while I was using a borrowed older version (round plug), but now that I bought my own wifi version, the wifi part comes very handy when I just quickly want to check on errors and reset them, such as was the case with a 10111 sidestand error getting logged. For everything else USB is the way to go.

Is it necessary? The short answer is No.
As others have said the yellow usb model is what you want for a '13 RT. However, it has been discontinued. If you can find an unsold one or a used one, you're good to go for as long as you don't upgrade to a recent model bmw.
The wifi model with the round connector will do also but is more expensive. You should see some used ones available on ebay. The ones with the ODBII connectors will also work but you will need an adaptor.

There is now a 2nd generation usb model with it's own limitations.
Also remember that the personal use gs911 are limited to 10 VIN licenses. Only the wifi versions are upgradable to an unlimited VIN license.

Re: GS-911 Price Drop

"SALE" ended prematurely last week.


Today (12/9/2019) was advertised as the past day of the promotion.

From the Beemer Shop
Hello Paul,


Yes, I’m sorry to report that we ran out of the stock that we were able to purchase at the lower cost which we were giving to the customer in the form of the discounted price. I was also not able to purchase any more inventory from Hex at that lower price as they ended the sale.



I’m sorry to give you this news, I would love to be able to provide the discount but I simply can’t get them anymore at the discounted price.

I am having an end of year phone meeting with the powers at Hex. I will ask them to consider another discount for next year, maybe an Easter sale or Memorial Day sale, something like that. We will announce these sales if and when they happen on our Facebook page and also through our newsletter which you can sign up for at the bottom of our home page.


Best regards,

pm
