I did the search and some old threads seem to suggest that Nanocom was lacking come of the features of Faultmate. One such feature is ability to direct read BECM memory, which faultmate can do using SM035 and nanocom can not do. Since this feature requires BECM disassembly and soldering some wires, I'll probably just send the BECM to a specialist if I need to do this.

Aside from direct memory read via SM035, what are the things that Faultmate can do, that Nanocom can't? Nanocom can do the BECM to ECM re-synchronization (you need to read the security code from ECM and write to BECM)? Are there other systems and features of P38 that Faultmate can access that Nanocom can't?

On a related note, does anybody offer complete immobilizer exorcism for Bosch P38? I know it's available for GEMS, and Diesels are work in progress. I really don't need an immobilizer in any sort, shape or form on my P38.

Both systems are covered pretty well here. If I were purchasing between two BBS, I would contact BBS customer support. They have first hand information and most likely a comparison chart on their site.

Do you mean the black box solutions forum? I thought you needed to buy one of their products to get an account on that forum, but may be I am wrong?

I found info on some other LR forums stating that the nanocom has all the same functionality as faultmate, except ability to direct read BECM memory using SM035. Can anybody confirm this?

Very correct. Unless they have changed their policies, you have to have MADE a purchase to be granted access to their forums.

I've just browsed through the P38 equipment. Faultmate looks like it is limited. Faultmate MSV-2 looks like it has better coverage and more capabilities.

It looks like faultmate MSV-2 allows you to actually operate the various things in the vehicle, for example turn the fuel pump or AC condenser fans on and off, which is useful for diagnostics. I am unclear whether Nanocom can do the same or not.

Nanocom can not unlock the BECM, so keyfob codes can not be read and new remotes can not be programmed. That's very clear. Some vendors claim to have access to a database that provides that code by VIN.
