    I prefer the ones you can plug into a laptop, with the right software you get more information back than just a fault code. I got one of the ELM327 ones from eBay and have used it on the Siggy, a Saab, a Nissan and a Rover and it works a treat.

    I still have a windows Laptop but it's on it's last legs so I tend to use this when my hands are all oily. But I got a cracking little piece of software for my MB Air called Movi Pro that will speak back diag info so I can use it while taking the car out on a test drive.

    It's was only a few quid for the interface itself, the most expensive part was the movie software but there's plenty of free / open source software out there for Windows if you just want to read back code.

    Here's movi - I didn't use their reader - http://www.yhasi.com/store/index.html
    Here's one of them cheap ELM 327 interfaces from China -http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ELM327-OBD...item46014c7570

    If you're going to get the ELM 327 - get the version 1.5
    I've got one of the BT versions and it's really good.

    If you combine it with Proscan, it's really powerful.
