You seriously missed out on the Black Friday sales on Lucky8, it was $448.
The cheaper alternative is Autel AP200, it's another alternative that does a few things like suspension calibration, register new key, and some other minor things besides the basic code reading/clearing, live values, etc that's vin locked. It doesn't compare to the Gap IID Tool, nor does it have the user support like Gap/Community.
Dang that sucks... There's always next year!...
The Autel AP200 looks like a good option for my basic initial needs, it seems to range from about $54 to $70 in the US. Hopefully it can pull suspension codes also (I've had a few suspension warnings appear)?
