    The best code reader is vcds, yes its expensive, but its fully supported by ross tech with free updates. User nhn on here is a supplier. You can get cheaper cables through ebay etc, but they dont always read all the codes. Wisest investment is vcds. Sure someone will be along shortly with advice on cheaper alternatives. :) x

    Vcds is very cheap considering what it can do for that price too.

    Vcds can also read generic codes on some cars.

    Anything and everything if you buy the pukka version.

    Code read and clear.
    Recode modules for extra features.
    Logging and monitoring engine and other systems...

    I swear by mine

    You could always just give a member near to you with VCDS some beer vouchers for looking at your car.

    Where are you and what's wrong with your car?
