File this one under "overreacting" if you will, but as I figure many of us Saab drivers on this board are a rather "proactive" vs. "reactive" type bunch, I thought I might throw this out there.
As my local dealer has gone away and my Saab fleet begins to age, i've been thinking more and more about picking up a Tech 2 and all the stuff along with it to be able to diagnose my Saab. When I search online, I find quite a few new Tech 2's which ship from either Guangzhou, Shenzhen, or Hong Kong for about half of what a used one sells for domestically.
While those who frequent the 9-5 board might recognize me as the guy who also posted on the Philips-by-poorly-placed-sticker-only D1S headlights I acquired a few months back, I figured i'd at least ask the question here...
Anyone have any experience with the Chinese-shipped Tech 2s? Genuine or not genuine? With GM willing to kill Saab due to protect their relationship with SAIC, I figure maybe these could be legit if the SAIC cars also require the Tech 2 for diagnosis. If they are fakes, do they even work?
