    Anybody out there have any experience of the SD1 diagnostic equipment ?

    I'd like to know:

    - Will the diagnostic software run on a lap top/PC ?
    - What the hook-up leads are like & if there's any in-line circuitry.
    - Where I could start looking for the software ?

    If I had the equipment I could keep my car in good shape and help my local F. Car buddies.

    You can buy it. But it will cost you 25-30k. It is it's own self comtained unit much like say a GM scan tool. If you do alot of cars for service it might be worth it. But for an owner, many trips to the dealer would be needed to make a purchase like that worth it.

    SD1 is the father of SDII. Same idea, less sophisticated. The software runs on a notebook computer, and if you have an original version of the software, you may need a Windows 95/98 machine for it to work. It came out in 1994/5 and was supported up until recently. The 360 was the first car for SDII.

    SDII has replaced SD1. There may be old SD1's for sale somewhere. There is an interface that goes with it and uses serial port connection.

    SDII should sell for no more than ~7500.
