What were the problems you run into?
I use autocom cdp+ on my laptop. It's a good allround unit.
Also have dec ss3, launch diagun, gscan 2, vcds and opcom advanced.
By far my favorite is the gscan, it's the fastest scanner in data viewing that I know of.
The downside might be that it's made for japanees/korean cars in the first place. It's has OEM software for Kia and Hyundai. But lately the eurepean software gets better every update with dealerlevel functions like:
Psa control module doding (bsi etc)
Opel coding and security code reading
Ford incode calculator
You can also view live data when you run an actuator test, so you can actually check the feedback when activating a component.
