    Default Where can I get a Cheap Diagnostic Tester (DIY Tech2)

    Hey guys,

    Im after a cheap Tech2 style diagnostic machine, one that can read codes for engine management and clear them for Vectra-C CDTI's and Vectra-B DTI's, all between 1999 and 2008.

    With all my current car's Vx's, and most future ones most probably Vx's, I think it would be a useful investment.

    Have looked at THIS in the past, was wondering if it is a cheap and easy to use item.

    Any idea's folks?
