    Question Which Code Reader?!?

    The car decided to go into limp home mode last night with the spanner through the car light on. Thing wouldn't rev or do anything!!! Although today it's been fine, go figure.

    So, thought I'd get myself a code reader as vaux-com is too expensive and Tech2 is way out of my league.

    So, been looking at these 2;

    http://www.autel-tech.com/ms309.htm

    http://www.gendan.co.uk/product_GDEO...ct_information

    My preference is for the Autel item, but what are people's opinions.

    The gendan one is the same as on LMF but £20 cheaper!!!

    I think they are good tools. I use the MaxiDiag EU702 though. But do keep an MaxiScan MS309 in the boot of my motor.

    Yes anyone got any info for the 2.2 di. Looks like it might be difficult to get a code reader for it. There are several members who would be gratefull of any information.

    Not sure on the 2.2 but for me as long as either work on the facelift 1.9cdti 120ps, then I'll be a happy chappie.
