    Not from ilexa you can't, they don't sell the interface separately. They'll obviously repair/replace a damaged one of a registered user (for a fee) but they don't just sell them.

    Regarding the winky smiley - do you really want to go down that route? Yes, you can buy cheap Chinese copies of the interface and find cracked software, but do you really want to be plugging that into your car? I know I wouldn't, and I know people that have used the copies and, well - let's just say it wasn't a happy ending.

    just watched the demonstration video and it looks a fantastic piece of kit, good for finding fault codes but surely you need to have a good knowledge of what values to expect?

    Yep, it's a great bit of kit. Like any tool, you have to have a knowledge about what it's actually telling you and what a reading should be - plus what a fault code may actually be (it's not always the item that has triggered the fault code that is necessarily faulty - it could be further 'upstream'). There's documentation available to tell you what figures to expect on a lot of the readings, so that's useful.

    I'm not sure what else there is that will read live data. Plenty of code readers but not sure what the next thing down in price range, if any, that will read live data.
