    depends if 409 has all the controllers you need for your car cause you can get a lead for 409 cheaply but TBH I wouldnt recommend them after my trial & errors with them, best money spent on my cars easily for the real thing.

    I had a 704 lead, actually I had 2-3 & they all went wrong, learned my lesson & got fed up with inconvenience of not having working lead so bought genuine from www.gendan.co.uk & havnt looked back, even though Wesley just got a good deal for £230 delivered in a case from MI-Diag which is £30 less than gendan, very surprised.

    But at least with genuine it gives you all new versions & support to date has been free.
