    You'll probably save that amount in a year or less! And much less stress to boot.

    For the price, yes. Others are available such as Lynx and Hawkeye although maybe not as comprehensive. Faultmate does more but costs silly money so most of us end up with a Nanocom.

    I am married, and I do understand, however, you either hide the purchase and hope for the best, sell the purchase to her as a money saving device (more shoes/clothes for you darling) or you accept that she'll make you sell your p38 on its 4th money pit garage visit!

    And yes, bang for buck, nanocom is the best. The extras you will get on faultmate are not really necessary for the average user.
    Nanocom is small so can be kept in the vehicle at all times.

    Hi I saw that thread but it looks like it's only been wiped over as the rest of the engine bay is quite dusty. I took the intercooler piping off and was just a bit oily nothing untowards, iam still in two minds to get the scanner but our local mechanic has got someone coming next Tuesday to check it

    The Enemy won't, too much to do in this country and she gets bored, it's a relatively small Island. Must agree with you about the airport's etc.
