    Guys,

    I need a diagnostic tool mainly to troubleshoot an IKE and LCM issue i'm having causing my odometer to show 999999

    can anyone recommend a cheap and good tool i can use?, I am good with computers and can use a laptop product if recommended.

    Alternatively is there someone in Surrey who will assist me with their gadget?

    <edit> Errm let me reword that .. .. help me with their diagnostic tool. ;o)

    Thanks

    It will be the 20 pin connector in the engine bay. Can you make one of the meets? Like the Oxford one? There will be a lot of us to give assistance
