Op-com
#1
Hi guys I’ve heard various things about op-com having positive and negatives and being advised to use tech 2 or vaux-com.

I’ve heard op-com isn’t always a safe system to use but wanting to get something that I had done similar to when I had a lad called Adam who unlocked features and did a full smd conversion on my astra h.

What’s people’s opinions of op-com and what options can this open up on my 2011 astra Sri?

I know it can be great for fault finding and reset but options wise??

Op-com & tech 2 are pertty useless on the them.

Yes you can read fault codes turn on some extra menus on the IPC but really apart from that nothing more.

It's all MDI & MDI2.

I just use my Op-Com for reading out fault codes, and resetting them on my Astra-J.

Bought originally for my Vectra-C, and paid for itself the 1st time I used it.

Tried it on my Astra-J 2.0 CDTi, and Op-Com thinks it's a VX 2.2 speedster if I let it automatically search for the model.

Seen plenty of opcoms on eBay etc but any particular one I should look at as don’t want a copy version that turns out when plugged in is complete bull.
