Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

The software looks surprisingly similar to the Opel Tech for the 'cheapo' Tech2. In fact, it looks like the final version of the Opel Tech software. See:

Now I wonder if it will work with the Cheapo Tech2....

Standard Kit - 490 + Vat. Pro Kit  - 540 + Vat

So not cheap. But cheaper than the proper Tech 2

Much cheaper than a real Tech2, but much less capable as well...

If you're after a cheap fault code reader for pre ODBII/EOBD Omegas, the cheapo tech2 lead is probably still best option.  Unless you live near me of course ;)

It shows live data - and has actuator tests so worth the money I would say
