Works great but is not foolproof

It works as long as you spend some time to figure out how to use it. Simple things such as read and reset trouble codes are very easy to figure out. Also it is easy to reset a stubborn airbag light. However priming the fuel pump needs more knowledge eg for Audi B6: 'Engine'->'Basic Settings'->'035' will activate pump. I used it with success on Audi, Seat and Volkswagen. For this price you cannot expect 200 pages instructions, you get maybe 12 with information showing where buttons are.

Worth every penny! Plug it in and away you go

Excellent product. Good build quality, very easy to operate simple plug and play. Allowed me to read and clear fault codes on my Audi A3 8L (2001). Paid for itself with its first use, allowing me to clear an non persistent fault with my passenger airbag igniter which would have cost me the price of the diagnostic tool simple to scan for the fault code. Would recommend to any car diy enthusiast with a VW, AUDI, SEAT, SKODA.

Class bit of kit! Within two minutes I had clear my airbag light fault and the light is now off after 7 months 🙂

Inexpensive, looks good.

I never actually plugged it in, as I was planning to test an Audi A5 with it before buying, to find any issues. But it looks simple enough and should work.

Ideal to have

Good bit of kit to have i needed it to turn off my airbag as I pulled the airbag fuse out whilst the car was running (which I do not recommend by the way) and caused a voltage error but this easily solved the problem and I use it to check the car over every so often

Excellent, easy to use diagnostic tool for VW

Withing 10 minutes of receiving the parcel I had reset the airbag light very easily and quickly on our 2009 T5 Caravelle.
