I wasn't thinking clearly at the time. I know scan tools vs. code readers = big difference, but even still, $115 seems a little on the steep side...unless they let you put part of that toward the repair itself once it is found
I really want a good scanner. I am going to need one when I start my BMW project. But I want a lift first.
IMO the $2500 lift is a better deal than the scanner, because I could put something together and then have it towed to the dealership for programming and even if I did this two dozen times I would still be ahead.
My code scanner cost me $30 and it does its job, but a true scanner can do so much.
The only one I am familiar with is the Vag-com for VW/Audi. As when I put a super in mine I had to constantly have the ECU programmed.
