    Code reader...Which one?

    I'm sure this will have been asked before??

    But which Code Reader is a good/accurate and reliable one to purchase,also where's the best place to get one,oh and estimated cost?

    Heard bad things about the cheap ones on Ebay.

    cheers.

    used it for the first time found 3 found which I didn't even know it had anyone. Cleared them, and they came back, so looks like I'm going to replace the engine temp sensor

    I think its a good piece of kit for the price, works fine on my A3, very easy to use.

    I would personally recommend it.
