Default Diagnostic tool for e30, e28, e34(m20 engine)

Hi everyone,
I would like to have diagnostic tool for these old bmw. At first this thing looked easy for me, old bmw, any diagnostic should see trouble codes and live data, but that is not true.
I work in car service, we have "launch x431" diagnostic tool, tried to connect it to my 1989 e30, 1988 e34 m20b25 and it shows DME fault codes, live data and have components activation function. That is enough for me (I am pretty sure that is all anyone can get), but I want to have my own, these x431 is pretty expensive.

- INPA 5.0.2-5.0.6 there is no e30, e28, e34(m20engine) selection.
- Carsoft 6.5, worked just oil reset, maybe because used usb to rs232 converter, going to try again using PCMCIA to RS232 converter.

Can anyone help with this strangely difficult task?
What would be cheapest tool that can do trouble code scan/erase, show live data and have component activation function for these old bmw?
