    Hi, I have not reset an airbag with Inpa before but it should be able to do it.

    Carsoft is much more user friendly. Inpa is quicker, a lot more detailed and much more advanced.

    I'd say the error codes are more detailed with Inpa. Last time I had a fault it gave info like number of occurences, RPM etc I have also heard someone I trust saying that Inpa has picked up on codes that Carsoft missed.

    To expand on ease of use - with carsoft it will auto identify what module you are connecting to. With Inpa you have to know what you are connecting to.

    That's easy enough to know when you are connecting to the DME. However, do you know what ABS module your car uses?!
