    cheap diagnostic tool

    Was thinking of buying one of these,

    VS450 Audi VW Volkswagen VAG Code Reader Diagnostic Scanner Com Reset Airbag ABS | eBay

    I was surprised how cheap it was but being so cheap is it a load of s**t?
    Anyone have any thoughts/have one like Iit themselves? I dont have any faults at present but I know audi charge around £100 just to diagnose a fault so thought it might be handy
    Cheers

    Thanks for the replies chaps!
    I've ordered one, at that price it's not gonna be the end of the world if it's not the greatest, I guess as long as it tells me what the fault is it saves me getting ripped off from the dealer!

    I guess if you want a cheap version (like me!) this one below is from the same seller.......

    047 Audi Diagnostic Fault Code Reader A3 A4 A6 S3 TT UK | eBay

    However if money is no problem i'd go for something along these lines.......

    Ross-Tech Store: VCDS License with HEX-NET (WiFi/USB) 10 VINs (All VAG)

    I bought a cheap one like that but for about £9 and its ok for what it is
    I use it to turn off the management light on my focus track car( its decatted, and puts the light on when driven steady)
    but ive used it on loads of cars and its not bad for the money
