Argos have a couple of RAC branded code readers:

Has anyone used either of these with a W220 (54 plate - face lift with MOST rather than DB2). Are they worth the money? How good are they? Do they just do engine codes or will they read more complex stuff like COMAND, Brakes, Airbags etc?

Also been looking at this:

Anyone tried one of these? Are there any other suggestions for a reasonably priced diagnosatics machine? Ideally, it would also work with a Renault Scenic (sorry) so I can check the wife's car too.

Cheers,
Bill
