From the forum owners.
This is the one I bought, and glad I did. It's much, much more than a scan tool.

OK, maybe I am missing something....

What oil change reset?

I have changed my oil a zillion times and have never reset anything or have seen an indicator that says I need to change the oil

Remember, the enthusiast version only gets you 3 vins. I went through 3 vins like a six pack and then had to buy the pro version. Wasted money.
