What scan tools are you guys using?

What scan tools are you guys using? I want to buy one for the 2010 R56 Cooper and have so far narrowed it down to these:

- AutoEnginuity with BMW Expansion ~AU$500

- Bavarian Technic Single Vehicle ~AU$179

- Autel MD802 ~AU$400


Any others that I should be considering? ScanGauge2?

Would be great to read codes for all the Mini's systems and not just basic OBD2 codes. Plus resetting any inspection periods/brakes etc. Not sure if the R56 needs battery calibration on new install? if so, that'd be great to have too.

Definitely looks like it's value for money, although it looks like it can only access the standard emission related obd2 codes. I want to get a scanner that'll do away with majority of future dealer visits. The car has just gone out of warranty so there's no more reason to take it in anymore

I've also come across this scanner from Innova, although from reading reviews it seems the additional system reading like ABS is hit and miss. So it'd be a gamble on the Mini
