So I have established that I am definitely going to buy a few the Mirage from Copart likely.

I've been tossing the idea around about buying a expensive autel scanner with the intent accessing as many of the manufacturer pids as possible.

Is there anyone on here who's considered or as practical knowledge of how effective it would be to a used such a device in weeding out the lemons or rot while examining cars during pre-auction?

Really any input about treasure hunting these auctions would be appreciated.
With the hassle, expense, and shipping I just went through take yet what I feel basic common parts even a parts car would have some decent value to it.
