Buying software tool. (maybe) Suggestions

Happy New Year everyone,

As the title suggest I am possibly looking into buying one. I would like something to be able to read codes as well as change some of the special options that you can only change with certain diagnostic software. Oh and since I will probably be doing a auto>manual swap, I need it to be able to do the programming. So I did some searching and found a couple different GT1 tools that were for sale. One was $450.00 and the other 399. So was confused cuz I thought these things were >1K. Here's the link to one of them.

Is that everything I would need to do what I was wanting or is it missing something which is why its so cheap. Also is there a better tool to use than a GT1. I'll take any opinions you have. TY.

You are in the wrong forum for asking this kind of questions!

You should not buy that "GT1" there are other options available that are more reasonable price wise and are better or more efficient...

I have one from Auto Enginuity that hooks up to my Palm pilot and reads codes and sensors. You can clears codes, check O2 functions..... I have used it several times on my 330i. If it could only locate vacuum leaks!

The INPA software does a vacuum test! So i would assume so does GT1
