Hi ya

Do you want to go in depth or just something that will read and clear the codes for you.

If you want something simple just to read codes I would say get something like a scan gauge or an ultra gauge. The benefit of having one of theses are you can leave it plugged in all the time so you can monitor your car most importantly coolant temp as the gauges are just for show if you have one fitted.
If you want really cheep there are loads on ebay for around 15 mark very basic

If you want something more in depth you can get a lead and dis software from ebay and the load it on to a laptop this will give you dealership level diagnostic, it's takes a little to get running correct but is very usfull

Hope this helps

Hi ya

The scan gauge or ultra gauge is what I would advise but if you want cheap the one in post 2 from ebay will be ok for basic stuff
You need one that's obb2 compliant which that one is

Hope this helps
