Default Best diagnostic software for 407 2.7HDi

Hi. I've just bought a 2005 407 Coupé with the 2.7HDI engine. I need diagnostic software and have read of Planet and Diagbox. Can anyone please advise which would be best for my car? Also, I have an old laptop I can use for this. Which version of Windows is best to install on it?

Finally, where is best to get the software ad any special leads I need?

Thanks.

Diagbox is the later updated version of Planet, a 407 would require Diagbox.

You also need the Lexia interface & leads.

Your Windows version must be 32 bit!

XP or 7 would be best for an old laptop, just must be 32 bit!

That's great. Thanks very much. Do I just search eBay for the lead? Are they all okay or is there there a particular one that's best?

Is this the right kit? It says Diagbox in the title but doesn't seem to mention it in the listing details.

eBay listing No 273828359435

There's a thread on this.

And I wouldn't buy that cable from that Ebay link.

Is there a guide for installing Diagbox? I've read the PP install guide but I can't see one for the later software.
