Rolleyes Is anyone who have bought automotive diagnostic products online?
Hello everybody!! First time posting here and its because i really need help. I run a small repair shop. so I was wondering if there is some

reasonable priced car diagnostic tools that would be able to bring my garage into the 21st Century?

Recently, I am paying attention to some online shops, I found that there are a wide variety of automotive diagnostic products online, but I dare not

to buy.
I know an online shop is plusobd.com (It is not advertising), i don't know it is reliable or not.

Is anyone who have bought automotive diagnostic products online?
Please share some experience or skills.
Thanks.

I have bought automotive diagnostic products online.

I believe it is this same company: PlusObd(LBHY) trade CO., LTD

Guess it should be a good one since quite a few guys here have posted positive results with the automotive diagnostic products they have gotten from this company.

I've purchased automotive diagnostic products from the guys over at Plusobd and they've not given me any problems whatsoever.

Not quite sure what do you mean either, but if you mean a place to get decent diagnostic equipment, I'd personally recommend plusobd.com, they've got really good and inexpensive devices, I've got a few of them in my automotive garage (EDIA5, TCR3, ZCR-3) You could always google other retailers, there is an expanding market for diagnostic tools.

Theres plenty of high end diagnostic tools available. Launch X431, AUGOCOM, UCANDAS VDM, OTC. Google is your friend. Be prepared to spend some $.

RE: Is anyone who have bought automotive diagnostic products online?
From personal experience i found a cheap diagnostic tool which ive used for the past

couple of years. Its good on all makes and didnt cost me that much. I dont know how

much it would be now but i got a laptop based one for like 800 quid.

Got it from a local company i saw an advert in cat magazine. I still talk to them as

well. They are called Tecnodiagnostics.

But if you want a cheap cheap one you can always get stuff from china. Ive had loads

of chinese stuff for under 200 quid but always breaks.


Hope this helps

It is better. But still no where near snap on then and the capability that they have is far beyond a cheap scanner.

RE: Is anyone who have bought automotive diagnostic products online?
I would suggest checking out local tool dealers. Some of the parts stores carry high end stuff around here in PA. I also checked out the local tool trucks such as Snap-On & Mac tools. I ended up buying a “Last Year” model of a top end scanner for less than half the price of the new model. It came with a full warranty and all the updates, just didn’t have a “Touch Screen." I can push buttons for a 3 thousand dollar savings! Since most tool trucks also take trades you may be able to get a deal on a used model to see how you like it and then trade up later? Just remember to see what it will do as opposed to what you NEED it to do. A cheap one that doesn’t do what you need will become a paper weight. One that is really expensive and you never use half of the features is a waste of money.

Please let us know how you make out.

Thanks for using the forum,
Garner
