Scan tool where to buy?

What is the best alternative to Peake? What brands/models are similar to Peake in terms of functionality and features and where store sells them? I would like the tool able to scan and clear trouble codes. Thanks.

I have an Innova CanOBD2 reader which I find great and easy to use. Specifically i got the 1003e model. Picked it up at walmart a while ago for about $60. Would definitely recommend it.

If anyone is interested in a GT-1, I can supply those either with or without an IBM T30 laptop.

It's $800 plus HST without a laptop.

Hey Mark, can you enable/disable options, specifically DRL? Also, I need to speak to you about software at some point in the future.

I have not tried disabling DRL's but it should be possible. I just asked a BMW MAster Tech and he says it should be possible on your e39 M5.
