Yes, most definitely suitable. I have the top of the range MD802, simply because it covers every make of car rather than a few European ones and I planned on making a few quid back on it by lending it out. This particular range of Autel readers cover the entire car, I was particularly impressed with the Vario Roof code reading, it even told me I had a loose connection on one particular switch. I have since reset all the codes and I will check them again in a couple of months time to see what it throws out again as I am sure several of the codes were stored ones that haven't been cleared previously. Yes, it does do real time data too, but I haven't figured out what to do with that bit yet! However, I connected the reader to my Rover 75 and it showed a misfire on pot 5.... I wondered why it had become sluggish!
A couple of weeks ago, I checked my mates Audi A4 with it as he had a problem with his folding roof and hasn't been able to use it for most of the summer. After reading the code, I reset it and hey presto the roof worked fine again! He was happy, having saved a fortune at a garage and I was very happy, having made lots of use of the beer tokens!
