What do you want to be able to read. The only thing that will work properly is the mercedes Star Diagnostic's machne.

I'm going to make the assumption that you don't want to spend thousands. What you want is a top of the line, state of the art, upgradeable consumer level scanner. You can't really go wrong with either:
Actron - http://www.actron.com/
or Equus/Innova - http://www.iequus.com/products.php?category_id=1
both of which are available on Ebay and elsewhere for significantly less than list price.
