    Thanks for the posts guys.

    I've had a good scour through previous threads and would like to know if anyone can recommend me one? I have an 04 2.2 Signum (It's pre-face-lift and has 3 buttons either side of the steering wheel so I understand this is half-CANBUS)

    Many thanks guys

    I have the cheapo orange 480 model off Ebay, and it worked fine on my Vec-c, also works great on the Insignia too. Only thing is with these type of Scanners you can only read the codes, or clear them, which is all we need most times. (At least it stops you screwing anything up...lol)

    Like many of the cheap variety, you cannot program anything.
