    thats not tech 2, tech 2 is a dealer-only device that costs £000's to buy mate, and you have to be a licensed VX dealer to get it. I haven't even clicked on the link but that will just be a OBD2 interface cable to plug your car into a laptop. at best, you'll be able to read fault codes and reset them, at worst... well it simply won't work.

    definately not proper tech 2 though.

    EDIT - just clicked on the link, look at his feedback - he's bought this, one of the rip-off "mod chips", and a "mileage correction" piece of software. looks like he's a bit uninformed on things and diesn't realise he's bought cheap ebay tat that won't work

    well done for having the sense to ask first

    if you buy the one from LMF then at least you have the safety net that Steve & the guys won't sell it to you unless it will definately work with your engine. just out of interest what year and engine is your car? for things like this to work you'll need OBD2 compatibility, which Vauxhall didn't introduce until their Y & Z prefix engines


    ...plus you'll get a discount from LMF
