    Purchased an iCarsoft i930 diagnostic tool (from Ultimate Car Parts for £96.95) which is specific for Jaguar/Land Rovers. Will try it out and report on its suitability.

    Now that we have two cats in the stable I’m looking at more high end shop scanners. Specifically the Autoenginuity.
    Reads standard OBDII codes for all brands and has optional brand software packages that read all the custom codes too.

    Not impressed with the i930. It worked on the main categories like Engine, Transmission and ABS on my XJ8, but there are other areas where it won't read the codes. Tried it on my XK8 and it has been a total failure. Looking to return it for a full refund! How can they sell it specific for the Jaguar & Land Rover range, have the options for model and year but not read the modules??? Will have to find something else.

    I do not offer advice, I only say what I would do with the set of circumstances presented. Your choice always.

    Hi Jimbo, Purchased it from Ultimate Car Parts of Blackpool. John in 'Sales' has been very good about it and taken the i930 back. It would appear that he has been given duff info on the i930. I've been in touch with the manufacturers in the US and they have now suggested their LR V2.0 for Jaguar/Land Rover. John is endeavouring to confirm that this unit will read all codes on my XK8 & XJ8. I am waiting to hear back from him.
