I have a snap-on MT2500 with the most recent 8.2 updates, you can find them on ebay, craigslist and other places for reasonable costs. Some cars from 2004 on and all from 2008 on require CAN (controller area network) protocal for communication with scanners so make sure whatever you buy is capable - its just an additional cable for my mt2500 between the scanner and the ODBII adapter. The MT2500 can do live data, functional tests including abs, body control module, air bag, injector kill, etc like the OTC and other platforms can.

There are also systems (software and adapters) you can get that work with a laptop to get codes, data, etc.
